Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: Although it's obvious from the start that the multiple personalities must be from different universes, it's a big surprise to learn that it's really a sham. That it's just one personality shoving the professor's mind out of the way. And we realize that professor Frith was murdered because he figured it out, not because he was himself posessed. Chilling ending in just the right way.

Con: It's not clear why the professor needed to be committed to an asylum to pull off this trick of spreading the technique to others.
