Mind Benders, The (1962)

A captivating British sci-fi film involving espionage in the wake of scientific studies on the effects of long-term sensory deprivation (which 80s Ravers will surely relate to).

Dr Henry Longman (Dirk Bogarde) is just one of the scientists who spends a few hours in an isolation tank and ends up even more unpleasant than he was before.

The film boasts some fine performances from a strong cast of the UK’s acting greats – not to mention the screen debut of Edward Fox.
