More Details

Synopsis:
A reasonably benevolent scientist decides to test his virtual reality computer program on a mentally-retarded young gardener who has often been brutally taunted, teased and exploited. The experiment, which sends nearly-real computer generated impulses to the man's brain, results in the gardener growing ever more intelligent. As his perceptive ability crosses into the extra-sensory, he seeks revenge on those who used to humiliate and hurt him.

Notes:
Shot in DeLuxe color with an estimated budget of $6 million. Premiered in Boston at the 17th Annual Science-Fiction Film Marathon. Opened nationwide on March 19, 1992. Contains some of the most innovative computer animation to date in the virtual reality scenes, including a much-touted virtual reality sex scene.

Reviews:
"...Every scene in this cautionary tale about science running amok has spectacular views, unusual camera angles and moves, or dazzlingly outré computer effects..." - 03/06/1992 Los Angeles Times, p.F18


"...The film's computer graphics are impressive..." - 09/04/1992 USA Today, p.3D
