Silly horror movie in which Karen (Raiders of the Lost Ark,
and her family are pursued by a serial killer that got down-loaded
into Cyberspace before he died.
Yeah, I know.
This Ghost in
the Machine manipulates household appliances and the voltage
surges in plugs via the Internet. He also manages to wipe her
bank account, etc. A movie for technophobes - a bit like The Net later on,
but way too ridiculous to take seriously.
Some hilarity in
particularly one scene in which a murdered family is shown
sitting in front of their blaring television set (the serial
killer has got it in for nuclear families). Unintentional commentary on the TV-inspired boredom of the modern suburbanite?
some nifty low-budget special effects.)
