Mind Melting Genius
3 January 2010 | by AndrewGHickeySee all my reviews

The cover art for 'Plughead Rewired' definitely grabs your attention. When I saw the plugged mug of Vernon Wells at the video store I thought it was Christopher Reeves at first glance. After actually picking it up and reading the blurb (possibly the greatest blurb to ever appear on a DVD cover) I realised it wasn't him but that this was something I had to watch.

I was warned of its awfulness after reading the other reviews on here but decided to plug into it anyway. I didn't realise what I got myself into. It takes a special kind of genius (or two in this case) to create something so mind numbingly pointless and incoherent (90 odd minutes of it in fact).

The storyline (I use that lightly), acting and dialogue are so wonderfully stupid I couldn't help but fall under its spell. Its got a Deborah Shelton topless scene (in the desert), Paul from 'Cheers' in a quirky and unnecessary role, Tom Kenny from 'Mr Show' as a loopy guru, and the queen of straight-to-video herself Traci Lords, what more could you want from a low budget sci-fi flick? If you're not keen on wasting an hour-and-a-half of your life then stay away. Im cool with it though.
