Cheesy B-Movie Goodness Flashback: "Brainscan" Starring Edward Furlong

A virtual reality game that allows players to commit murders is the crux for the high-tech thriller Brainscan. Edward Furlong (Terminator 2) stars as a video game fanatic who receives the latest horror game that challenges players to carry out brutal killings and try to get away with it.

A lonely teenage horror-movie fan discovers a mysterious computer game that uses hypnosis to custom-tailor the game into the most terrifying experience imaginable. When he emerges from the hypnotic trance he is horrified to find evidence that the brutal murder depicted in the game actually happened -- and he's the killer.
