Before Tony can get to work on the first day of his new job, he manages to lock himself out of his appartment. To get back in he uses the his new security pass, which resembles a credit card. The card becomes damaged when it is used to open his front door, and then causes mayhem at work when the main computer fails to identify Tony as the new employee. The high-tech building is run by computer, which interprets its programming as meaning; "destroy all threats". The BUILDING is out to get Tony. Written by Rob Hartill

Like a really bad 80s Doctor Who episode
12 June 2018 | by cbridgemanartSee all my reviews

I recently caught this and was laughing most of the way through at the silly script, loopy synth music, crass lighting and very naff fashions, but it also amazed and shocked me, when I looked it up online and discovered it wasn't made in 1983!

Worth a look for the model work and special effects, and if you enjoy the so-bad-it's-good genre of sci-fi movie.
