Surprisingly better than expected sci-fi horror
20 May 1999 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

I must say I was pleasantly surprised with this film. It focuses on a group of teenagers who are forced into a strange video game like hell after seeking shelter in an abandoned,well so they thought, warehouse. It turns out that an evil monster has been programmed by his master-Roddy McDowell to kill all the teenagers who are now trapped in an electrical magnetic playground where there is no escape!. This film plays like a video game, there are lots of dark corners and corridors and heaps of unexpected frights. The robot/monster is also quite effectively menacing. This film is actually quite a good example of the horror, sci-fi genre. And its different- which is a big plus. In summary a better than expected sci-fi horror, which you should see at least considering watching.
