Bruce Campbell offers some of his finest cheese March 26 2011
By C. Sawin - Published on Amazon.com
THIS DOES CONTAIN SOME SPOILERS

If somebody came up to you and started describing a sci-fi film where people plug themselves in to a virtual reality through inputs located on the back of their neck, but then followed that up by saying that it wasn't The Matrix then you'd probably think that it was some sort of bad riddle. In retrospect, it probably is in a way but a little film called Mindwarp used this concept seven years before The Matrix did. While Mindwarp isn't nearly as flashy or anywhere near the same category of success as The Matrix (or as good), it can probably pass for one of those sci-fi films you catch sporadically during a fit of insomnia while flipping through channels during the infancy of the day and enjoying more than you thought you would.

The similarities to Total Recall will make themselves apparent right away, but Mindwarp doesn't take long to throw you into a post-apocalyptic world you'd expect to see The Road Warrior loitering around looking for an opportunity to relish what was thought to be a dried up natural resource. While Mindwarp can be considered a sci-fi film on the surface, it's most likely a horror film at its roots and that becomes apparent as soon as you realize who's a part of the cast. Bruce "don't call me Ash" Campbell plays the love interest for Marta Martin's Judy while The Tall Man himself, Angus Scrimm, portrays the villainous Seer. While the uniting of these two actors in one film is exciting to horror fans, aficionados may be disappointed when they realize that both Campbell and Scrimm basically have glorified cameos in the film. Neither of their parts seem very large once the film ends, but at least you get to see Campbell get infested by leeches and basically no-sell throwing up his intestines.

Mindwarp is gloriously grotesque, as well. It doesn't even try to shy away from blood or gore, which is fantastic for bloodthirsty horror fans. A perfect example is the meat grinding device the Seer uses as punishment to individuals who disobey him. The device is made from parts you'd find in a garbage dump along with a plethora of human skulls. After the unfortunate victim goes through the machine, their blood is spewed into a bathtub where the Crawlers, a deformed cannibalistic civilization that lives underground, drink the victim's blood. But with all the comparisons to horror come many of the same downfalls many films of the genre have. Mindwarp was made in the early 90's and the leftover cheese from the 80's makes its way into the film practically effortlessly. That means the few attempts at humor in the film will probably make you verbally groan. The acting is also over the top, Campbell and Scrimm have their moments but the wild card is Marta Martin. Her acting is really terrible early on in the film, but slowly gets more tolerable as the film progresses.

Although you'd probably expect more from a film starring legendary horror icons Bruce Campbell and Angus Scrimm, Mindwarp blends the horror, sci-fi, and thriller genres fairly well. The film still has enough cheese injected into it to make it feel like it was made in the eighties; when horror films were at their peak. So while the acting sometimes leaves something to be desired, the concept is surprisingly great and would even go on to influence sci-fi films you're probably more familiar with like The Matrix. Mindwarp is half Mad Max and half The Hills Have Eyes with a little bit of Total Recall thrown in for good measure. This quirky, blood-soaked post-apocalyptic gem is worth unearthing if you're a hardcore fan of horror or sci-fi cinema.

For those with a warped mind! Nov. 19 2013

A fantastic schlock horror / sci fi movie that takes me back 20 years.... In your face effects and a storyline that pre-dates so called modern classics like the matrix... It's also one of the rare occasions that Bruce (the chin) Campbell gets to play it straight!

If you're a fan of Campbell, post apocalyptic dystopias or KNB Effects group's work then check it out you won't be disappointed in this fantastic transfer from Twilight time. One whinge though! More Extras please? Oh one more thing, there's only 3000 of them printed so if you're interested, don't hang around.... You wouldn't want to pay stupid money to get one....
Stands on its own without the Bruce Campbell factor July 12 2009
By Brendan Foy - Published on Amazon.com
I just caught this movie not too long ago and felt compelled to write a review here. Originally I watched it for Bruce Campbell, the king of current B-movies and cult classics. I have been a big fan of Bruce Campbell since his Evil Dead days even though his acting skills are limited and his movies outside of the Evil Dead series are subpar; his charisma and personality are the main draw.

Enter Mindwarp. It is like an early low budget vision of The Matrix where Judy (Marta Alicia) manages to escape her computerized Utopia and enter the harshness of reality. Well she didn't exactly escape, she rebelled and was kicked out. Bruce Campbell plays Stover, a wanderer of the "outworld" who does all he can to survive, not disimilar to Mad Max. Their paths cross and they spend some time together in the post apocalyptic wasteland. To not spoil anything I won't get into the plot any further but will mention that the conflict in the film involves what are called "crawlers", a mutated breed of human that cannibilizes human flesh.

Bruce Campbell is not the star of the film but plays a secondary role to Marta Alicia's character. I have never seen her in a movie before and now I know why, this is her only movie role. Her acting may not be Oscar worthy but it's certainly better than a lot of what you see on television these days or in a high budget Michael Bay film. She also happens to be very sexy but in a girl next door sort of way. She isn't some playmate thrown into the role, she's an athletic, cute and smart actress who I wish I could have seen more of back in the 90's as a teenager. Bruce Campbell is rather low key in this film and it is obvious this is not one of those B-movies specifically written for him to capitalize on his cult following. His performance is one the best I have seen from him. He is believable in his role and helps you ignore the somewhat distracting low budget. I love Campbell when he is doing comedy but he comes across very well in this film by turning it down a notch.

The film is certainly limited in budget which may distract some but they did a very good job for what they had to work with. There is plenty of gore in the film which may turn some off but it helps add a horror element to this Dark Science Fiction piece. Most important is the story and the underlying themes. You have what is perceived to be Heaven, the virtual world where Judy comes from and what is perceived to be hell, the underground world of where the Crawlers dwell. Inbetween, where Bruce Campbell lives, is like a sort of purgatory. What is of particular interest is how Judy feels trapped in her "heaven" and yearns to experience true reality while those in that reality dream of being in the virtual paradise where Judy comes from. Those in Heaven are curious about hell and those in hell are curious about Heaven. The grass is always greener on the other side.

It's worth a watch, you might like it. Had this been given a higher budget the themes might have been able to be explored a bit more but as it is, it works well enough as a Dark Sci-Fi horror.

EXCELLENT Cult Classic! March 13 2012
By MoreRockin - Published on Amazon.com
If you're one of those movie buffs that must see excellent special effects, Johnny Depp type acting and etc, than this film is not for you! If you want to be engaged in a futuristic scifi with a cool plot and story than you have to watch this movie. I was pleasantly surprised!

AWESOME ENDING!

Yeah, this a pretty good ol' cheesy fangoria/sci-fi flick. Don't listen to that other dude. A little slow to start, and "B movie" but a nice 90's cult jem nonetheless.
