A campy, manic performance by the brilliant Anthony (Brideshead Revisited) Andrews highlights this well-done version of the Stevenson classic about a doctor torn between his good and evil sides. Talented Laura (Mask) Dern and Brit actor Gregory Cooke add nice supporting touches. There's one problem: This Shelley Duvall production, directed by Michael Lindsay-Hogg, is only one hour in length. It should have been longer.
