Obviously, the movie wasn't released in theaters, but it's not bad, despite that reason. There's no need for briliant special effects, and the work is good. It doesn't look like a cheap amatuer movie like a lot of straight to DVD movies do. It is well acted and the few effects it does contain are well done.
If you are a fan of the original novel or of the numerous adaptations that it spawned, this is one to check out. And maybe, if you're a fan of Requiem For a Dream (though I'm not), you might enjoy this film. Otherwise, there's not much there for ya.
Personally, I don't think anyone named Jekyll should be admitted to medical school - to me, that's just common sense. I don't think med students should be popping homemade pills all of the time, either, but that doesn't stop it from happening in this film. Anyway, Henry Jekyll (Bryan Fisher) was admitted to med school, and he is dead set on engineering some kind of mood-altering drug based on Ecstasy. Why? I have no idea. It's not the kind of research product that his professor can endorse, so Jekyll continues his work in secret. Experimenting upon himself, he offers video updates describing the side effects and such from the increasingly larger samples of drug he is taking. The major side effect is the personality change engendered by the drug, which begins turning Jekyll into Hyde. You would think Jekyll would call the whole thing off after finding the bloody body of an unknown female in his bathtub, but by that point it's too late. He's wholly dependent on his dangerous little pill, and he actually likes Hyde because Hyde has all of the strength and confidence that he lacks.
As members of his inner circle of friends begin to die in increasingly gruesome ways, Jekyll isolates himself more and more, even from his sort-of girlfriend Martha. No one knows about Hyde, and the seemingly nonexistent local police obviously don't suspect him of committing the crimes. Murder will out in the end, of course - as will bad movie-making. I'm afraid Jekyll + Hyde makes no more than a small ripple in the ocean of this over-exploited genre.

This book is so dope. I totes taught this to my classes, and they were all, "yo! they should make a musical version starring David Hasselhoff!"Published on May 2, 2014 by Matthew Mouse
I am a huge fan of the old black and white "thrillers" of yesteryear. I loved the original Jekyll and Hyde. Read morePublished on December 30, 2010 by Rolene Schriedel
