I had forgotten about this...
27 April 2005 | by preppy-3See all my reviews

An interactive movie. Basically each theatre had to be specially equipped with different video monitors and such. Each seat had a sort of device where you could pick an option. Like when someone is being tortured--you have three options to pick from on HOW he was to be tortured. The one that most people "vote" for is shown. Sounds interesting...but it wore thin fast.

Basically each movie is the same--just the various options are slight detours that end up going back to the main story. I did see it once and was mildly amused but had completely forgotten about it the next day.

From what I remember it was a pretty stupid movie full of crude humor with lousy acting. Billy Warlock was the only one that gave a halfway decent performance. He was also easy on the eyes which helped:) Still, this was supposed to usher in a new era of interactive movies. Considering this was the only one made and it's been 10 years since we've seen another one, chances are it's not gonna happen again.

Worth a look maybe for curiosity's sake--but it's totally pointless to see without the options. Skip it.
