Storyline

Aspiring songstress Holly Moon admires the famous diva "Samantha" and attempts to sneak her own act on stage, in the same elite futuristic techno club. With a weird stroke of luck, Holly succeeds, but is unaware that "Samantha" really appears only with the help of an illegal, secret military computer program. The program uses the imagination of a real person to create a total virtual reality environment. At the club, the MC introduces Holly with the line, "Welcome to the Imagination of Holly Moon." A fantastic environment and performance unfolds from within the subject's own lofty aspirations. Holly also doesn't know that a "glitch" in the program has murdered the real "Samantha," and that she, Holly Moon is slated as its next victim. Written by Interpers <interpers@earthlink.net>

That song
12 September 2005 | by ustickmSee all my reviews

There have been various comments here about the song that Holly sings, all positive as I recall, so some proper identification is in order. It is in fact called "Holly" (not "Only in Hollywood" or anything else), and was originally recorded by the band that wrote it, Republica, on their self-titled 1996 album. I would say that the original version as sung by the band's little spitfire of a lead singer is somewhat better than this movie version (though there's nothing particularly wrong with the latter). Although Republica only had their 15 minutes of fame here in North America (maybe a half hour in their native UK), they might be familiar for their two hits "Ready to Go" and "Drop Dead Gorgeous". The movie itself is formulaic (it was clear to me all along who the "dark presence" was), but the SF theme is interesting and FX are indeed good.
