I dunno if it's because technology has so far advanced from when this movie was made, or if I'm not a teenage boy and maybe that's what kept me from liking it, but something did. It's got obvious rip-off's of A Nightmare On Elm Street and a few others mixed in and it's all mostly stupid. [Artist40581]'s best buddy forever (seriously) recommends a new game he heard about in Fangoria. He calls the number to initiate and suddenly he's watching the screen and he is thrust into the body of a murderer and told not to leave clues. When he's finished he finds out that the murder is all too real, then a silly looking punk creature (mimicking Freddy in many ways) comes to let him know the score and tell him he has to get rid of witnesses. The effects are laughably bad, the idea is pretty silly and there is even a love interest in this, erm yeah. I really disliked this on every level, it was predictable to the core and way too long (even at an hour and a half).

Availability:  On DVD
