Storyline

After being struck by lightning, Dr. Bill Matthews recovers in the hospital where he also works. An intern named Craig Murphy slips him a card inviting him to a meeting of "people just like us." In this "group," Bill finds other survivors who have been electrocuted in various ways. But the doctor soon discovers that the members are addicted to the electric current. And not only does Bill become hooked, his relationship with sexy Dr. Craig Murphy deepens, setting a chain of events into shocking motion. Written by Doug Prinzivalli

Quotes

[first Lines]
Dr. Emily Andersen: For some reason you were left with no burn marks, however the current used your hands and feet as it's escape route so you'll probably have nerve damage in all four extremities.
Bill Matthews: Permanent?
Dr. Emily Andersen: Not necessarily, but you should prepare yourself for the very real possibility that you won't be returning to surgery.

Far from perfect, but a lot of fun!
18 October 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Wow - some reviews have been rather harsh, don't you think? Here are my thoughts on this movie without giving too much away. It had an interesting premise that I haven't seen before. It moved along at a nice clip and never left me bored. The actors were handsome and it had enough nudity to be "fun" without being tacky. It was an enjoyable way to spend part of an evening and it is a movie I would watch again.

Yes - there are times in the movie where the smallish budget is evident

  • but it didn't really take me out of the movie. Yes - some of the


actors might have been a little stiff, but once again; didn't take me out of the flick.

So often, people complain about the "gay stereotypes" in these movies. Guess what folks. "Stereotypical" gay people exist. Just because they aren't as "straight acting," "hipster," or "edgy" as you are does not make them less relevant.

Kudos to the director, staff and everyone else involved for making something interesting and fun.
