Storyline

The CEO of Clayton Software, Faye Clayton, lays off her development team after their latest game project, called "Evilution", receives numerous disastrous test previews, and begins her search for a new team. 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

Wow what an excellent sci-fi scary movie
17 January 2002 | by (leicester,England) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie last week and was totally blown away by how good it was. I wonder why it didn't get a cinema release. I live in the UK and find it a task to get hold of some movies so it was a bonus to see this. Clea Duvall who happens to be my fave actress was great in this, her character was so convincing. I rate this a perfect 10 out of 10 go get it..
