Karl Hochman, a technician in a computer shop, is also "The Address-Book Killer", who obtains the names of his victims from stolen address-books. Terry Munroe and her son Josh come into the store to price software, and a salesman uses Terry's address-book to demonstrate a hand-held scanner. Karl obtains the file, and while driving to Terry's house that night in a heavy electrical storm, his car runs off the road and lands upside down in a cemetery. While Karl is undergoing a CAT scan at the hospital, a surge of lightning courses through the building, and Karl's mind is transformed into electrical energy. Karl uses the electrical grid and computer networks to continue his killing-spree. Written by

Wil Horneff, Karen Allen and Brandon Quinton Adams appeared in the Sandlot, which also the movie came out in the same year. See more »
In one of the early scenes, we see Karen (mother) traveling along the street in her Volvo sedan from a distance, in which you can clearly see there is no-one visible in the passenger front seat. It is empty. In the next scene we see her son sitting in the seat. See more »
I have to agree with several reviewers who tired of the special effects. By now, we cannot suspend disbelief enough after years of the internet, and the premise is tired and dated.
Karen Allen, a decent actor, elevates the material a bit, as well as Chris Mulkey and a few amusing scenes with Jessica Walter, as the cantankerous mother in law.
Other than that, the only memorable scene is when the dog disappears under the swimming pool tarp. You may want to skip this one unless you are easily led by sci-fi fiction. Recommended if you are completely bored on a rainy day. 4/10.
