Storyline

Alex Manning is a troubled suburban teenager. Her mother committed suicide and the school counselor feels that she has not dealt with her feelings properly. Manning and her friends decide to visit the local video arcade known as "Dante's Inferno" where a new virtual reality arcade game called "Arcade" is being test marketed by a computer company CEO who is more than willing to hand out free samples of the home console version and hype up the game as if his job is depending on it, and it is. However, it soon becomes clear that the teenagers who play the game and lose, are being imprisoned inside the virtual reality world by the central villain; "Arcade". And it gets worse when a virtual reality game begins to take over the minds of teenagers. The computer company felt it would be a good idea to use some of the boy's brain cells in order to make the game's villain more realistic. Instead, it made the game deadly. And so now Nick and Alex must enlist the help of the game's programmer and... Written by Anthony Pereyra {hypersonic91@yahoo.com}

Master blaster
5 December 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Classic Full Moon video about a bunch of teens who try out a new video game, only to be sucked into it and trapped there. Dull, poorly executed and downright silly at times. You know you're in trouble when characters keep saying, "Virtual reality is the future!" However, this does have John DeLancie of "Star Trek:TNG" and the very pretty Megan Ward to keep us mildly interested. A young, pre-"Buffy" Seth Green plays a teen punk and Peter Billingsley of "A Christmas Story" fame is one of the teens. When my daughters were little, we never missed a Full Moon video, and this was made during the height of Full Moon's popularity. Cheap, down and dirty entertainment. Full Moon's laurels rests on its "Puppetmaster" series, which was only slightly better than other Full Moon titles. By the way, the attractive Ms. Ward turns up in several other low-budget videos of the period, including "Amityville: Time" and "Trancers 3."
