Ghost In The Machine


(out of 5)

A serial killer dies during an MRI following a near-fatal car crash, and his death during an electronic storm causes his soul to enter cyberspace and prey on people through their electrical equipment. His next victim is a single mom () and her precoscious son, but first he has to bump off everyone in her address book before getting to her. Told with a healthy sense of pacing and no-nonsense plotting, this film is undone by some pretty cheesy effects and a very slim awareness of technological reality. Like The Net and The Lawnmower Man, it was made during that short period of time when people’s knowledge of such things as virtual reality and the internet were minimal enough to have their fears taken advantage of.  Still, fans of the murder-by-numbers genre of filmmaking will get a kick out of it, while others will be bored by the mundane characters and uninspiring performances.
