Prototype Power Glove Massacre Shockingly Nintendo-less!

19 October 2009 1:39 PM, PDT | | See recent Dread Central news »

The premise of the new sci-fi thriller Prototype reminds me very much of a mostly forgotten film from 1989, Deadly Weapon, about an emotionally disturbed teen that gets hold of a military laser gun, which itself was a pseudo-remake of 1978's Laserblast, a cult fave about a troubled teen that gets his hand on an alien laser cannon. This time the high-tech tools of vengeance are telekinetic power gloves, and you better believe the revenge-minded wearer - now he's playing with power!

Prototype was co-written and directed by Michael Reilly and stars Mark Kelly, Michael Tylo, Steve Zissis (Baghead), and Joe Cabitat. Worldwide Film Entertainment is currently looking for distribution and no doubt will be shopping this low budget high-tech thriller about a teen who can bitch slap you to death from thirty feet away at next month's American Film Market.
