In the tradition of hi-tech horror films such as “Videodrome” and “Lawnmower Man” comes this tale about a computer nerd (Edward Furlong) who tries playing the world’s most realistic videogame. Fun turns into terror for the teenager when he discovers the killing he does in the game is for real.

Complete with a Freddy Krueger clone called Trickster, “Brainscan” is a so-so genre entry that also stars Frank Langella.
