Actors: Ray Liotta, William Dafoe

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Control

Lee Ray Oliver (Ray Liotta) has been executed by lethal injection for the murder of several people or so they thought. He is given a second chance at life on one condition; he has to take part in a secret experimental medication that is said to be able to cure him of his violent nature. This experiment is conducted by a well know scientist, Dr. Miles Copeland (William Dafoe). It does not seem to work at first, but after increasing the dosage it seems to have a positive effect on Oliver. He actually goes back to visit one of his victims who survived his wrath, and attempts to become a changed man. He is then spotted by an individual who witnessed his supposed execution and without his medication his past starts to haunt him again.
