Storyline

Rosa is mad at Ben. They were supposed to spend the weekend together, but the arrival of Virtual Killer II in the mailbox spoiled everything. Ben has decided to pick this weekend to finish the video game. Rosa shouldn't worry, if it was as bad as Part I, he'll trash it in no time. But Virtual Killer II is quite an improvement. As soon as Ben starts chasing monsters, an unknown person enters the house and starts chasing Rosa. When Ben fires, the intruder fires too. This could be very dangerous.

The end really makes this a great short
30 January 2008 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is an exceptionally clever little short film from France. Now at first, I was very turned off by the violent aspects of the film, but I am exceptionally glad I stuck with it, as it has one of the more clever and satisfying endings I have seen in a short.

A young lady tries to get her boyfriend (or husband?) to stop playing on his computer and join her. However, he's totally addicted to gaming and has the insatiable urge to play more--even when she begs him. Oddly, when he chooses to play "Virtual Killer II", the character comes to life--chasing the lady through the house and trying to kill her. Again and again, she manages to escape--at which point her boyfriend (who is totally oblivious) comments about how great the A.I. is of the game--the enemies are REALLY smart and hard to beat! There is, of course, much more to it than that. Rest assured that this one is well worth a look due to a wonderful script and great social commentary.
