Storyline

'Lola' is the entirely self-sufficient, computerized security system for the Sandawn corporation. When Lola is left in charge of the building for one night, she decides the late-working employees and their acquaintances would make an excellent source of energy for her systems to function on. Seeking out the 'heat sources', the remaining people trapped in the building must find a way to shut down Lola before the morning. Written by Koreander

How about sushi!
19 May 2008 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This is the holy grail of all Emmeritus Productions, who cranked out unbelievably cheap, silly "action" flicks for Hamilton's CHCH-TV through the 80s. It bears all the hallmarks: shot on video with soap-opera production values, silly dribs of implied sex-and-violence interspersed with lots and lots of talking. And this one comes with an attitude: the computerized office tower that sucks people's life energy through the light sockets is clearly supposed to be some kind of commentary on the tyranny of the energy-conservation movement, of all things! But now that I've voluntarily watched it three times, I have to admit that it's kind of endearing in a very stupid way: the bickering crew of mismatched fugitives-from-death are quite amusing, and the sub-HAL computer with its 80s digital-animation readout is a nice way to break things up. While I can't really award any points for being SO 80s, I am kind of obsessed with that one woman's bird-nest-forward perm. And if you're going to be bad, you might as well repeat the same walking shot three times within one five-minute stretch, for maximum entertainment value.
