From IMDb: “A small town video game store clerk must go from zero to hero after accidentally unleashing the forces of evil from a cursed Colecovision game… Max Jenkins’ gaming fantasies collides with reality when a legendary “lost” installment of the Nether Game series appears on the store counter of his workplace, Fallout Games. Unbeknownst to Max, the game bears a “Curse of The Ages”, and in playing it, he has just unlocked the Nether, an ancient malevolent force of evil from the cartridge, upon his small hometown. Along with a mysterious masked man and his two best friends, Liz and Reggie, Max must figure out how to beat the Nether at it’s own game before it’s Game Over for humanity.”

Review: There was no poster immediately available for my review. Should one become available in the future, this section will be updated.

Trailer Rating: C-

Review: Such a corny concept is entirely unoriginal and the execution looks even more low-budget than one would expect. Being the second film about video games that I’ve looked at in the last two weeks, neither looks to be anywhere in the league of something like Ready Player One, which might have been a slight inspiration to all these video game/real life merger efforts.
