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 »
As far as T.V. movies go, the Cyberstalking is as formulaic as they come. Its clean-cut, television quality mixed with standard special effects is mildly pleasing, but eye candy can only get you so far. If you've seen one of those Sci-Fi T.V. movie you've seen this one. If you've seen the Outerlimits with Mark Hamil, then you've definitely seen The Cyberstalking. The only interesting twist is a song sung by Holly Moon (that's the character's name -really)played by Jean Louisa Kelly. "Only in Hollywood," will definitely stick in your head and you'll find yourself humming a line or two. However, they do overuse this song and it'll get old faster than it takes to summarize the plot. Too bad they didn't add a couple of other songs. Holly Moon plays a struggling singer who desires to make it big. Working effortlessly to promote herself and perfect her craft she gets the opportunity of a lifetime when a producer hears her demo tape. Meanwhile his current artist reaches critical mass and ends up blowing a lobe after an intense session in the virtual reality simulator. Her brother knows something killed her in the program. Through the use of cybernetics, the producer links Holly Moon to a sort of
virtual reality mainframe whereupon she constructs a world by the power of thought in which to present her music; like a music video minus the annoying VJ's. However, things go wrong as a malignant phantom glitch appears in the simulation apparently out to kill again as it did the first time. It's up to the crusading brother to save Holly Moon... Brian Grant, the director should stick to what he does best -t.v. shows.
