Coma – Blu-ray Review

Something’s going on. Something that isn’t right. And someone is responsible. Now, it’s up to a suspicious nurse to figure out why healthy, young patients are suddenly going comatose and ending up part of some crazy experiment. But that’s not all. Someone knows what she’s up to…and they want her dead!

Coma is a clever, eerie, and thought-provoking sci-fi thriller that shows the ugly underbelly of unethical medical experimentation. What happens during these experiments may seem worthwhile to some, but to Dr. Susan Wheeler (Genevieve Bujold) they’re anything but.

It’s an intriguing medical mystery from novelist Robin Cook, adapted for the screen and directed by that guy who wrote Jurassic Park, Michael Crichton (yeah, I think he knows how to make an effective thriller work). And here he does with plenty of twists and turns and surprises to make you sit up and take notice.

Oh, and Michael Douglas co-stars as Wheelers doubtful boyfriend, Mark. Will his skepticism get the better of him, or will be able to forgo his initial hesitations and realize that Wheeler isn’t just paranoid; she knows too much!

Coma is available NOW on Blu-ray!
