Will anyone escape with their lives?!? Or their sanity??? Worth a late night watch.Dec 31 2014
- Published on Amazon.com
There’s an interesting premise to this slow boil movie made way back when this was really a sci fi concept: can a machine predict and control our behavior and cause us to act in contrary ways to which we see ourselves; can we be manipulated by an artificial intelligence of our own design? When five volunteers subject themselves to a machine that can “read minds” when fed certain information about the subjects it pushes them to their limits and exposes their darkest demons. Trapped in a living situation where they can no longer get away from each other can be claustrophobic in itself but when the walls literally begin to move in on them will any of them escape with their lives, or their sanity?
An interesting premise but not executed especially well and the video transfer of the Alpha Video edition leaves a lot to be desired. But it’s worth a watch if you’re looking for some older low budget sci fi that doesn’t rely on SPFX to convey its storyline.
