Some of the marketing for this film seemed to position T. Ryder Smith, playing the mysterious video game host "Trickster," as a wannabe successor to Robert Englund's Freddy Krueger. Brainscan, written by Andrew Kevin Walker, is a bit of a relic from the dying days of virtual reality-mania, in which a teen looking for the ultimate video game experience finds a game that causes him to black-out and apparently murder real people while he thinks he's playing. Have you ever lost hours of your life to a video game?
