Movies based on videogames sucked. Movies about videogames suck harder. That seems to be the way of the world. However, I cannot find it in my heart to dislike Brainscan, a movie in which Ed Furlong goes on a psychotic rampage thanks to an evil game.
Amusingly, T. Ryder Smith, who plays the game's monstrous herald Trickster, went on to do a number of videogame voices, including that of BioShock's Sander Cohen. Neat!
Anyway, this is a game-related episode of my regular movie review show, so I figured you might like it. Enjoy!
