Additional Info

Secret Psycho Seized reads the headline of the Coxsackie Tattler. A mild mannered librarian has brutally butchered sixteen and one half people. The distinguished pneuro physicist Dr. Henry Jekyll believes this is a case of a rare theoretical disease called quantum synaptic dualism. He ingests a special concoction that changes the good doctor into a loathsome stand up comedian whose act trades on violence, misogyny, homophobia and ethnic slurs. Reset in Coxsackie, U.S.A, this is not the story that Robert Louis Stevenson wrote. Even the moral of the tale is altered when Jekyll's noble self sacrifice is vanquished by Hyde's towering corruption.
