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.
