This film will bring you closer to your grave.
19 January 2008 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I joined IMDb with the intent of writing about Maximum Surge. In the event that something may have happened to me before I signed on, I would have been unable to warn people away from watching this terrible, awful film. That, I imagine, would have been extremely bad for my karma. It's taken a few years since this film was made, but now perhaps my soul will find peace.

First and foremost, Maximum Surge is just excruciating to watch. Beware of films that are so bad, they are good, this isn't one of them. Likely you will only see it on television, if you do, you must change the channel or turn it off lest you become one of those sad, lost minority who sat through the whole thing.

Much of the filming took place at a school I used to work at. The filming was brief. Although the school had a policy of showing films every weekend, Maximum Surge was never shown. This was the film shot in the one place you'd figure would guarantee that it would be shown. Nope. It was so bad, you couldn't even show it to the people who worked at the location is was shot in. The school has since been sold to a large American conglomerate.

Maximum Surge will induce maximum purge of brain cells, of slack, of life force, of anything that you value as important to your life and well-being. Stay away at all costs.
