Critic Reviews:

...while the three main characters were all great, the doctor’s other patients weren’t quite up to par. In particular, the acting was a bit hit or miss and their interactions with one another weren’t always super believable. They sometimes felt more like fictional characters than real people, and that took me out of the story a little bit.


It seems like a good idea, but there is no gravitas to the story. The film has more of a sitcom tone than a genre film. This is an old school film that may find a small audience, but lacks the vision to be reimagined for a present-day audience.


...it might be fair to call The Institute a Lifetime thriller with plenty of skin added in. Apart from the sex scenes, there are several exam scenes that feature the female cast naked in front of some weird machine the doctor has invented. It’s reminiscent of pseudoscientist/con artist Wilhelm Reich and his “orgone accumulator”.
