Here is a compelling thriller that leans more toward drama than horror, although AMICUS films, responsible for many Hammer-like productions, produced it. Robert Vaughn is excellent as an understanding psychologist who performs a delicate operation on a 30-year-old man (Stamp) who was born in a coma and has spent his life, thus far, lying on a hospital bed. Upon bringing the man, Mr. Soames, to consciousness, (he is, in effect, a baby) the work begins to teach him how to relate to his environment, how to eat, talk and behave. (If this film were remade today they would no doubt include potty training!) The conflict comes from the more compassionate methods of Vaughn and the sterner, more authoritarian viewpoint of the hospital/clinic’s administrator, played by Nigel Davenport. Soames’ progress is extraordinary, but like all curious ‘children’ he longs to explore the world around him and manages to escape from the clinic, seriously hurting an attendant in the process. This of course gets the police involved and the manhunt is on.

Ratings explained: 

All films are rated for audio and video these can be found in the specifications in product descriptions.

Everyone rates in different ways and what maybe an 8 to me might be a 6 or 9 to you so please bear in mind that they are there as a rough guide only.

A rating of 8.5 will normally be direct from a VHS master or equivalent

9 upwards will be from good quality TV broadcasts, screeners etc.

8 and below will be from 2nd  or even 3rd generation prints from all types of master.

Fullscreen & widescreen titles are marked with  a W or F or some 16:9 or 4:3

Widescreen can mean anything from a slight scope to 16:9 anamorphic. We try and mention this in descriptions when we can.

Every title on the site is region free so no matter where in the world you live you should have no problems playing any of our discs. Your only requirement is a DVD player capable of receiving a PAL and NTSC signal, about 99% of European players have this facility, the rest of the world check the net for compatible players.
