Overview

A serial killer is transformed into a computer virus out to destroy more than your hard drive in this sci-fi thriller. Terry Munroe Karen Allen, a single mother, is looking for a gift for her boss and visits a computer store, where one of the employees demonstrates a hand-held scanner than can transfer the information from her address book into a software program that will store the information on her PC. Unknown to Terry, one of the employees of the store is Karl Hochman Ted Marcoux, known in the press as "The Address Book Killer," who likes to steal other people's address books and murder all the people listed within, including the book's owner. Terry accidentally leaves her book behind at the store, and Karl lifts it, but as he drives to her house to strike her off the list first, he is injured in a serious accident and taken to a hospital. While Karl is being given a CAT scan, lightning strikes the building and Karl is transformed into a series of electrical impulses that can travel as computer code from one system to another, or as current through power lines. Soon Terry begins to suspect something is wrong as her friends succumb to attacks by microwave ovens, hot-air blowers, and other household objects. Terry and her computer-savvy son, Josh Wil Horneff, realize that they're at risk after Karl appears in Josh's virtual reality games; it's up to Bram Walker Chris Mulkey, a brilliant hacker-turned-computer maintenance technician, to isolate and destroy the Karl virus before it can kill again. The film's soundtrack features such hip-hop stars as D-Nice and Too Short, Schoolly-D, Grandmaster Slice, and Kool Moe Dee.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Jeremy Wheeler
Horror veteran Rachel Talalay directed this cheesy exercise in terror that owes much to the virtual-reality trend started just two years before with 1992's underdog hit The Lawnmower Man. Featuring an absurd killer that's as menacing as the film's bottom-of-the-line computer graphics, Ghost in the Machine might not deliver the shocks that it originally intended to, but it has found a new life as a unintentional laugh fest. With outlandish kills that include an exploding dishwasher, hand-dryer flamethrowers, and killer microwaves, it's hard not to love every way Talalay cooks up the gruesome proceedings. The flick does benefit from a handful of inventive camera shots that follow the evil electrical currents through appliance cords -- a rather shocking trick considering it precedes David Fincher's same patented gags by more than a few years. A rip-off Terminator 2 ending seals the deal for this sucker, as for the first time in cinematic history, a serial killer is eradicated by an electromagnetic atom smasher -- now if that isn't high concept, then what is?
