Plot
This fairly interesting made-for-TV effort from horror director Wes Craven and Salem's Lot producer Richard Kobritz involves a case of cryogenic suspension gone horribly wrong. A wealthy industrialist ( Michael Beck ) arranges for his body to be kept on ice in a high-tech cryonic chamber, with specialized instructions regarding his revival at a future date when medical science can restore him to life and health. Thanks to a computer malfunction, these instructions are not followed properly... and Beck emerges from the frozen crypt as an empty, soulless creature and a vessel of pure evil with an appetite for destruction. So evil, in fact, that his own mother ( Beatrice Straight ) decides he must be destroyed and sets out to do the deed herself. Despite the obvious limitations placed on Craven 's sinister imagination by the TV medium, this is an intelligent, well-written and thoroughly frightening little film..
