An anonymous totalitarian organization kidnaps Keir Dullea. Via computer electronics, he is mentally transported to a fantasized oater settlement (Blood City) where a person’s status accrues according to the number of people he/she can murder. Sheriff Jack Palance is classified as Immortal, having 20 killings to his score.
Dullea’s progress through the city is monitored by program technicians Samantha Eggar (who also inexplicably lives in Blood City) and John Evans.
Although the film’s initial conception may have held traces of intelligence, swiss-cheese script strains coherence and interest with each development. Consequently, neither in their interdependence or individuality do the film’s sci-fi or western elements emerge as generically satisfying.
