Quotes

Infinisynth Announcer: [atomic explosion] Stupidity, chaos, cruelty, pain. Reality, a failure worse than any nightmare. There was no fixing it. Nothing to be done, except... escape. Infinisynth: more fantastic than fantasy, more real than reality. The ultimate experience is Infinisynth. It's all been remade for you and it's anything you want it to be. It's your reality. Let your dreams come true in your very own world. Hook into the happiness system. Relax, imagine, enjoy. Hook in.
Judy: Bullshit.

Nice idea, poor execution, too low budget.
15 March 2020 | by deloudelouvainSee all my reviews

The story in Mindwarp is interesting but the budget for this movie was just too low. It's a pity because it had potential to be a good sci-fi post apocalyptic horror movie but now it's just a bit cringing to watch. Maybe one day they will remake this one with a decent budget and then we could have something. The costumes, masks and other attributes looked like they've been purchased in the cheapest costume shop, the acting is mediocre and that despise I like Bruce Campbell normally. It looks like he always plays in stuff where at one point somebody gets his hand chopped off. I wished I liked this movie more, but even for a distant 1992 movie it still looks too amateuristic.
