Editors Note
Note Michael (Edward Furlong) is a gore-loving, media-saturated, suburban teen. Isolated by his distant father and dead mother, he finds refuge in horror fanzines and slasher flicks. He plugs into a new interactive game where the player enacts all too real murders. He thinks he can beat the wisecracking gamemaster--called the Trickster (T. Ryder Smith)--at his own game, but when he finds a severed foot in the fridge Michael realizes there is a bit more to Brainscan than he realized.
New York Times "...Tests the limits of techno-horror....[Furlong] is wrenchingly real..." 04/22/1994 p.C12
Variety "...Furlong gives a solid and sympathetic performance..." 04/25/1994
Los Angeles Times "...[The] film certainly does supply its own jolt....It's more ambitious and intelligent than most teen horror flicks..." 04/22/1995 p.F5

Review Played by T.Ryder Smith, Trickster provides much of the fun in Brainscan, a thoroughly formulaic horror movie juiced up with virtual reality techno-toys and MTV attitude.
