During this search, she selected a team of renowned game designers, Bug, Hardcore, Sol, led by Peter Drummond as replacements. At the same time, they are informed that a bonus of a million dollars would be awarded to those who make the game the most scariest, through innovation means. Desipte their rivalry among them, they work together to make the game scary enough to scare the kids in four weeks. Just as Sol adds his powerful AI chip into the hard drive, the lightning strike causes a power surge which brings "Evilution" to life. The programmers are soon confined in the building, becoming targets of their killer game they've created and the virtual nightmare begins... Written by Anonymous

A unique, entertaining flick
10 April 2003 | by (Charlotte) – See all my reviews

Well I consider myself a bit of a movie buff... My favorite flicks are Taxi Driver, Apocolypse Now and other hardcore dramas. I just stumbled upon this movie on HBO and I couldn't stop watching it! In my opinion, any movie that lets you forget about the real world for an hour or so is a great movie. If you're a computer geek you'll probably be chomping at the bit to nick-pick it but many of us watch movies to be entertained, and I have to say this movie was GREAT, imo. Something very different (and funny), and entertaining! I would buy this DVD. I especially enjoyed the performances of the three programmers, and the hottie intern.
