Ghost in the Machine | 1994 | R | - 2.6.3

Horror flick about a serial killer gone cellular.

SEX/NUDITY 2 - One cleavage shot of a buxom young babysitter and one scene of a teenager playing a pornographic computer game.

VIOLENCE/GORE 6 - Most of the violence happens under the guise of computer animation. However, the gore looks real: An entire family is shown sitting dead and bloody on their couch. A man dies after his microwave oven sends electricity buzzing through his kitchen, and his skin starts bubbling, blood oozes from his head and he literally begins to boil. The family dog is found floating dead in a pool. A man is torched by a hand drier in a restroom. A dishwasher leaks onto a kitchen floor where the sudsy water meets with a loose wire and a teenage girl is electrocuted; she's seen flailing on the floor.

LANGUAGE 3 - Some scatological and anatomical language.

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Violence, divorce, dysfunctional families.

MESSAGE - The computer age has left us with very little control over much of our lives. There's no telling how far the power and reach of computers might go in the near future.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
