The Storyline of Coma Recycled
17 January 2016 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

The patient Ben Beloit (Marc Lawrence) strangles Dr. Karen Steinbrook (Tony Lawrence) and flees from the hospital. However he is hit by a bus and the intern Dr. Kristine Lipton (Melissa Gilbert-Brinkman) brings him back to the hospital, where she learns that her friend Karen was murdered. When Ben and his also elder friend Crater (Al Scheckwitz) die, Kristine finds something strange and investigates other patients. Meanwhile Dr. Eugene Kesselman (Jack Scalia) has one night stand with her. Soon she discovers that doctors in the hospital are researching how to stop the aging process and her prime suspect is Dr. Kesselman, and she decides to disclose her findings to the Chief of Staff Dr. Simon Martingale (Pernell Roberts). Did she take the right attitude?

"Donor" is a thriller made for TV with a reasonable story. Actually it is the storyline of "Coma" recycled with a predictable conclusion. My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): "Tráfico de Corpos" ("Body's Traffic")
