Source of story An original screenplay
Elevator Pitch When a scientifically created humanoid injures a scientist a young woman is sent in by “corporate” to the remote location of the experiment to sort out the problem. She is faced with increasing difficulties as the team who created the being fail to properly assess their relationship with it or to take the necessary steps to control the situation.
Content Much exposition in the slightly grubby rooms of the bleak country house, housing the management of the experiment and in the secure laboritory where Morgan lives. Quite a bit of violence of unpleasant sorts, plus martial arts, and gunfire with a pistol and a rifle.
A View Neither my wife or I liked this much, but why not? It seemed to me that there were weaknesses in the script. It worked in a way because we were not told much, but nor apparently did the scientists and custodians of the humanoid (maybe replicant would be a good name) understand what they were dealing with. Surely unlikely. Don’t expect to be enlightened.
