Aspiring songstress Holly Moon admires the famous diva "Samantha" and attempts to sneak her own act on stage, in the same elite futuristic techno club. With a weird stroke of luck, Holly succeeds, but is unaware that "Samantha" really appears only with the help of an illegal, secret military computer program. The program uses the imagination of a real person to create a total virtual reality environment. At the club, the MC introduces Holly with the line, "Welcome to the Imagination of Holly Moon." A fantastic environment and performance unfolds from within the subject's own lofty aspirations. Holly also doesn't know that a "glitch" in the program has murdered the real "Samantha," and that she, Holly Moon is slated as its next victim. Written by
Based on the Pat Cadigan short story, "Pretty Boy Crossover," published in 1986. The song Holly sings is a cover of "Holly" by British alt-rock group Republica - the main character Holly is very loosely based on Republica's lead singer Saffron. See more »
Excellent Science Fiction story mixed with rock and roll and virtual reality. Based on a story by SF author Pat Cadigan. The cast is fresh and appealing (no silicone amongst the ladies) and the special effects are top notch.
