Not one of the great science fiction movies
18 July 2013 | by Red-BarracudaSee all my reviews

A college professor warps the minds of several of his students by exposing them to a video game that can bring about extreme changes in personality. This leads to several of them resorting to murder.

This cheap 90's science fiction thriller is not terribly impressive. The basic idea isn't particularly interesting to begin with but the execution is even worse. There are a series of scenes where we see the victims of the brain twisting game committing homicidal acts but none of them are well delivered and the movie subsequently has very little thrills. Its low budget is pretty obvious throughout but that's not really an excuse for the resultant lameness of the entire film. It's just very difficult to care very much what happens because the basic premise isn't presented or explained very well. We don't really see much of the video game and there isn't really a lot of connection between it and the murder scenes. It's just very poorly put together generally. The best moment, however, was a laugh-out-loud one when the professor unveils a severed head in a jar – it's not only presented in a ridiculously matter-of-fact way but it looks disconcertingly like the head of Beaker from The Muppets.
