This will probably be more suited to a teen audience, but it is good funthroughout. Edward Furlong (T2) plays a horror fanatic who stumbles uponanadvert in a horror magazine advertising a CD ROM game called 'Brainscan'Hedecides to play it but is skeptical, that is until he gets a little morethan he bargained for. The idea is good and it holds up for most of thewayif not all, but it is good for a rental and will keep you amused for anhourand a half. T. Ryder Smith is good as 'Trickster', a creepy character whoemerges from the game.

In the mess of this whole new teeny bop friendly,horror-without-the-horrornonsense I've been seeing so much of in recent years in pieces of crapfilmslike the "scream" series and others that remain nameless, although I amsureyou know what entities I am speaking of... "Brainscan" is one of the lastfew greats. Greats, as in, it chooses to use a formula that is well knownwithin the genre-yet attempts to add a twist to it, producing one of thefirst and one of the only watchable films of its kind (ever seen "arcade"?Or those techno babble wastes of reel "Lawnmower Man 2" or"Webmaster"?)I will admit, it is not the best horror film of all time, but consideringitis most likely the last theatrically released film of its kind with evenantint of quality to it...the last film that took any amount of creativitytoadhere to the mainstream (If there is such a thing) Horror genre formatwhile trying to revamp and revitalise it... I do believe this filmdeservessome credit. It is what it is, I prefer not to think of it as thepossibilities of it being so much more...for what was accomplished, I'dsayit was well worth it..
Brainscan is by far one of the most personally influential pieces I canrecall from the Horror genre. I look back on this movie as what can bemisinterpreted through the creative process, sheer possibility and thelike.This movie took a very creative stance behind the usual blandness of atypical horror story and made what could be interpreted as a piece ahead ofits time. In 1994, the internet was not what it once was, and peoplesunderstanding of it was dim in a mass perspective.. so a lot of this filmwent misunderstood or unappreciated at the time it was released. Only now,through home video distribution and release can people take shots at it,butare they really justified? This is a generally stated low-budget film(Edward Furlong did it obviously because he had some sort of passion forthegenre) and it was done with a certain degree of emotional intricacy. Lookatthe larger scope, don't feel embarrassed to admire what could have been, initself a Horror-genre redfining era that just didn't click with mainstream"pop" perspective...
