If somebody came up to you and started describing a sci-fi film where people plug themselves in to a virtual reality through inputs located on the back of their neck, but then followed that up by saying that it wasn't The Matrix then you'd probably think that it was some sort of bad riddle. In retrospect, it probably is in a way but a little film called Mindwarp used this concept seven years before The Matrix did. While Mindwarp isn't nearly as flashy or anywhere near the same category of success as The Matrix (or as good), it can probably pass for one of those sci-fi films you catch sporadically during a fit of insomnia while flipping through channels during the infancy of the day and enjoying more than you thought you would.
The similarities to Total Recall will make themselves apparent right away, but Mindwarp doesn't take long to throw you into a post-apocalyptic world you'd expect to see The Road Warrior loitering around looking for an opportunity to relish what was thought to be a dried up natural resource. While Mindwarp can be considered a sci-fi film on the surface, it's most likely a horror film at its roots and that becomes apparent as soon as you realize who's a part of the cast. Bruce "don't call me Ash" Campbell plays the love interest for Marta Martin's Judy while The Tall Man himself, Angus Scrimm, portrays the villainous Seer. While the uniting of these two actors in one film is exciting to horror fans, aficionados may be disappointed when they realize that both Campbell and Scrimm basically have glorified cameos in the film. Neither of their parts seem very large once the film ends, but at least you get to see Campbell get infested by leeches and basically no-sell throwing up his intestines.Read more ›
If you're a fan of Campbell, post apocalyptic dystopias or KNB Effects group's work then check it out you won't be disappointed in this fantastic transfer from Twilight time. One whinge though! More Extras please? Oh one more thing, there's only 3000 of them printed so if you're interested, don't hang around.... You wouldn't want to pay stupid money to get one....
Enter Mindwarp. It is like an early low budget vision of The Matrix where Judy (Marta Alicia) manages to escape her computerized Utopia and enter the harshness of reality. Well she didn't exactly escape, she rebelled and was kicked out. Bruce Campbell plays Stover, a wanderer of the "outworld" who does all he can to survive, not disimilar to Mad Max. Their paths cross and they spend some time together in the post apocalyptic wasteland. To not spoil anything I won't get into the plot any further but will mention that the conflict in the film involves what are called "crawlers", a mutated breed of human that cannibilizes human flesh.
Bruce Campbell is not the star of the film but plays a secondary role to Marta Alicia's character. I have never seen her in a movie before and now I know why, this is her only movie role. Her acting may not be Oscar worthy but it's certainly better than a lot of what you see on television these days or in a high budget Michael Bay film. She also happens to be very sexy but in a girl next door sort of way. She isn't some playmate thrown into the role, she's an athletic, cute and smart actress who I wish I could have seen more of back in the 90's as a teenager. Bruce Campbell is rather low key in this film and it is obvious this is not one of those B-movies specifically written for him to capitalize on his cult following.Read more ›
However, this has, quite possibly, one of the most drawn-out, poorly executed endings in the history of cinema. After having a relatively brisk pace throughout, the plot SLAMS to a halt after the "shocking" surprise is "uncloaked," and we're forced to listen to heavy, slow, philosophical dialogue for what seems like foreeeeever.
So, like I said: Bruce Campbell fans, definitely check it out. Fans of cheesy 90's sci-fi... yes. Everybody else... probably not.
4 Stars for the film itself.
5 stars for the effort behind the restoration.
If you love Post-Apocalypse Drama/Horror/Action give this a shot.
