"...THE SENDER is a superbly-crafted modern horror picture....Boasting spectacular, realistic special physical effects..."
A disturbed, suicidal young man has terrible nightmares of violence and bloodshed which are transformed into reality when he directs his thoughts toward other patients. Even his psychiatrist falls under the spell of his horribly tormented mind.
A suicidal young psychiatric patient telepathically "connects" with his shrink, involuntarily causing her to experience his emotions -- including his pain.
