This Canadian-produced horror movie finds a third-generation descendant of the monster-making madman Frankenstein (Simon Ward) performing bizarre electronic mind-control experiments on the students of a Canadian university under the auspices of his sponsor, Dr. Preston (Sean Sullivan). When the doc isn't hard-wiring the kids' brains into the department's newest computer equipment, he's making time with a pretty coed (Kathleen Sawyer). Complications ensue when a group of students decide to frame the doctor for selling pot, leading him to use the computer to remote-control a karate champion and chop-socky his enemies to death. Only when the doc loses his control box do things really get out of hand, leading to a whiz-bang climax which reveals the doctor's true identity. Dated and silly, with needless subplots and numerous drug references, this is occasionally enlivened by some interesting special effects. This film is also known by the oddball title Flick.
