Synopsis

Dr. Heckyl is a lonely man who works at a podiatrist's clinic. Heckyl has a lumpy, unfortunate face and no luck with women. So one day, he attempts suicide by drinking an entire bottle of weight loss formula. This unexpectedly results in his transformation into a charming ladies man, Mr. Hype. But Hype is evil, with an overwhelming urge to kill. In fact, that urge is so strong that he kills his women before he can have any affairs with them. When Hype goes after the woman that Heckyl has loved for a long time, it turns out that she prefers the ugly, but kind Heckyl over his suave alter ego.
