Fugitive Mind (1999) Horror Movie Review
Horror movies Review
Michael Dudikoff is one of those guys who will always look like a beachboy, even when he’s in his seventies. Handsome in that Californian way, Dudikoff has managed to stay fit and trim and a likeable hero. FUGITIVE MIND breaks no new territory in plot line or suspense, but it’s a passable mind control pic.
Dudikoff plays Robert Dean, a happily married man with a lovely adoring wife (played stonefaced by Michele Greene). However, he has horrifying nightmares in which he is obviously going to kill someone. This someone turns out to be David Hedison who plays a senator about to expose the government-sponsored agency that is dealing with cloning experiments. A myriad type plot begins and while it sometimes becomes confusing, we are exposed to the real idea of the plot. Seems Dudikoff is not who he thinks he is and once he runs into former lovelady Heather Langenkamp (Nightmare on Elm Street), he finds out the truth. Along for the ride are a surprisingly plump Gil Gerard as a private investigator; Barry Newman as the doctor behind the mess; Gabriel Dell as a young doctor who exposes the plot; and Ian Ogilvy as the heinous perpetrator of the experiment. Add Chick Vennara as the senator’s duplicitous aide and you have the ingredients for this direct to video scifi thriller.
Not a great film but an adequate time passer.
