In his first film outing, William Hurt plays a Harvard scientist experimenting with a sensory deprivation tank. He hallucinates back through stages of human evolution, emerging from the tank as a primitive killer. The writer of the novel and the screenplay, Paddy Chayefsky, disowned this adaptation - made just before he died - and the script was credited to his pen name Sidney Aaron.
