Regarding Scopolamine...

Believe it or not, the film's pseudoscience isn't as far out there as you'd think. Although Mike and the Bots joke about scopolamine being a made up chemical, it actually exists. In reality, scopolamine is the platonic ideal (as in the perfect embodiment) of a date-rape drug. Scopolamine renders its victims into a highly suggestive state (without apparent detriment to their mental or physical faculties) for a period of hours, after which the victim's memory of the experience is completely wiped. It is the stuff of nightmares.

But to the point: although the doctor's experiment is ridiculous at nearly every level, the use of scopolamine to place our asshole protagonist into a hypnotic state is probably the part most grounded in sense.

Whit Bissel's goal in this movie is eerily similar to the goals of William Hurt's character in Altered States.

One essential difference, though, is that Hurt's motivations seemed to make some sort of sense. The doctor in this movie makes it clear that he's motivated by a desire for fame and notoriety. Meaning... what? That he's planning on publishing a paper detailing his findings from that time when he experimented on an unwilling human test-subject, resulting in the deaths of three innocent teenagers? I don't think the standard mad scientist formula worked here.

"They said I was mad! But we'll see who's mad when I'm done killing indiscriminately!"

interesting facts about Scopolamine{yes it's a real drug}...it's either a motion sickness medicine or, sadly, a powerful date rape drug in South America...

Was doing some light reading with this one on in the background. Heard the music and thought to myself hey The Clash. What seemed instantaneous to me, Tom belts out 'London Calling'. This was promptly followed by a well deserved gut laugh.

There are so few laughs logged for this one, but there are some hidden gems here. I thought I was going to pee my pants with the world's most unflattering leotard line.

The most satisfying moment in movie history is when Michael Landon punches the wanna-be beatnik who thinks he's hip despite being a mid-western high school student in the fifties.

At least this werewolf actually LOOKED like one (at least the movie monster version), as opposed to the manbearpig-bat thing in the god-awful Joe Estevez adaptation.

Is this the only episode without a Wizard of Oz reference? This may be the one (and only) without "How 'bout a little fire, Scarecrow", or, "Poppies!" Don't get me wrong, I love Wizard of Oz. Just noticed this had no such riffs.

I just found out that this movie originally played as a double bill with Invasion Of the Saucer Men, which was later re-made by Larry Buchanan as (dun-dun-DUNNN) Attack Of the The Eye Creatures.

Okay, this is at least the third episode with a newspaper with and article reading Building Code Under Fire. Does all of Hollywood subscribe to the same fake newspaper?

So when did Hollywood decide that werewolves should look like actual wolves instead of monkey/pig things?
