(a film review by Mark R. Leeper)

This is a good science fiction in an ugly container. It is sort of an earthbound INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS. A laboratory is developing a new decorative plant which is also an herb. The lab is growing a crop of the little plant to be sure it is safe from causing allergic reactions. It also affects the human nervous system to make human happy. That adds up to a plant that controls humans. It essentially makes humans do its bidding. The background is irritating and slow, but is clever enough to make the film worth seeing. Rating: high +1 (-4 to +4).
