Synopsis by Linda Rasmussen
In Anatomy of Terror, a made-for-TV spy mystery thriller, a Korean war vet (Paul Burke) discovers that he is the victim of brainwashing and must depend on the help of his girlfriend (Polly Bergen) to learn the truth. The plot has some interesting twists, but the cast gives uniformly lackluster performances -- not aided by the poor production values and direction of this low-budget thriller. Viewers are advised to watch The Manchurian Candidate which covers much of the same material with more interesting results. Anatomy of Terror was also released as An Echo of Teresa.
