The school is under going tests of a new security system. Jo and several others students are to remain behind while the others leave for Spring Break. Little does Headmaster Bradeen (played by Lance Henriksen) know, but Jo has hacked into a computer and has unleashed a super virus called "Mangler 2.0" in the security system, but what she doesn't know is that this virus literally has a mind of it's own, and it controls everything around the school, so it is very capible of killing everyone in sight.

Ugh. Good thing I didn't pay to rent this.
21 May 2003 | by (Ohio, USA) – See all my reviews

While most of her peers are away on break, a student genius (Chelse Swain) plans to get revenge on the stern dean of her school (Lance Henriksen) by developing a computer virus that will shut down her high-tech campus long enough to give her and her stupid friends some time to party. Instead, the plan backfires when the computer system takes on a mind of its own, traps the group inside and starts killing them off by manipulating and controlling the electric wiring.

Chelse Swain (THE VIRGIN SUICIDES) fails to convince us she can tie her own shoelaces, let alone is a genius, and the talented Henriksen is sorely wasted as the human heavy, who's eventually transformed into what looks like Plughead from the CIRCUITRY MAN films.

Highly implausible plot, amateurish acting, insipid dialogue, painfully annoying characters and offscreen murders mean don't bother with this "sequel," which is completely unrelated to the 1993 Tobe Hopper film.
