Karl Hochman is a technician in a computer store. He is also known as the "Address Book Killer" due to his habit of stealing people's address books and proceeding to murder anyone listed in the book. Terry Munroe and her son Josh come into the store to purchase software, and a salesman uses Terry's address book to demonstrate a handheld scanner. Karl obtains the book, and while driving to Terry's house that night in a thunderstorm, his car runs off the road and lands upside down in a cemetery. While Karl is undergoing an MRI at a 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. It is up to Terry, Josh, and computer hacker Bram Walker to stop him before it is too late. Written by

The worst thing about being an online serial killer is that Internet users can leave comments about how "gay" your murders are.
Fortunately, the serial killer caught in cyberspace here can retaliate against such cowardly remarks.
When the Address Book Killer (Ted Marcoux) gets into an accident, he's taken to the hospital. As his injured body lies inside of an MRI, an electrical storm causes his mind to be transferred into a nearby computer.
Able to continue carrying out his murderous rampage, by possessing electrical appliances, ABK targets Terry (Karen Allen) and the contacts in her little black book.
Now, her and her computer hacker friend must trick the killer into accepting a virus.
Although dated, and poorly acted, this 1993 horror movie has some interesting ideas when it comes to cyber-slayings.
As for how to spot an online serial killer they're the one who's wearing someone else's profile picture. (Yellow Light)
