        A murderous ghost in electronics who uses this special ability to kill his victims. Campy but fun, lots of interesting deaths and tongue in cheek moments. Not the best sci-fi film, but quite fun to watch.

        Its a great movie, 1993 time frame so the computers are somewhat of a joke, but who am I to talk I once paid $249.99 for a Commodore 1541 Disk Drive. I wouldn't show it to Young Children (Under 17) because of the cussing near the end of the movie, that?s just me. If you allow your children to hear cussing, then its on you. A somewhat entertaining movie for adults.

        A murderer is zapped into a computer and starts killing using household appliances. This lame sci-fi spin on the serial killer movie is as bad as it sounds (the last I heard, tin openers weren't online...) Maximum Overdrive had a similar concept, but at least that had a sense of humour, and more importantly, AC/DC.

        Impressively inane techno-thriller.
