Since I consider it my mission to expose awful movies in production, here's another one:

Gamebox 1.0.

Starring Harvey from Sabrina the Teenage Witch and Topanga from Boy Meets World! The official synopsis:

Charlie Nash (NATE RICHERT) is an expert at testing video games. His life has become unbearable since the tragic shooting of his girlfriend Kate (DANIELLE FISHEL) by a crooked cop named Ronald Hobbes (PATRICK KILPATRICK) and he spends his days buried in his work.

The arrival of a mysterious package catches Charlie's interest. Inside, Charlie discovers a new video game system with a wireless headset and a strange looking camera. Putting on the headset, Charlie is amazed to hear the game introduce itself as GameBox 1.0, the ultimate gaming experience. It instructs him to photograph his friends who will then become characters in the game. Intrigued, Charlie chooses Ronald Hobbes as the villain.

"Once you begin", says GameBox 1.0, "you won't be able to quit." Fascinated, Charlie presses START . . .

Charlie is shocked to discover himself fully immersed in an incredible 3-D game world. There he meets the villain Ao Shun, a Samurai warrior with the face of Ronald Hobbes. Charlie is up to the challenge. But the game takes an unexpected turn when Charlie finds himself face to face with a character named Princess, who looks and sounds just like his lost girlfriend Kate. Shaken up and confused, Charlie realizes that memories have been extracted from his mind. Then suddenly things get worse when Charlie is shot and the sensation of pain is all too real!

Charlie QUITS the game but suffers from frightening hallucinations, unable to distinguish between the real world and the world of the game. Slipping into a coma, he finds himself trapped in the game against his will. His only way back to reality is to play and win.

Awful. Just really really bad.

Watch the trailer, and then try really hard to avoid this movie when it hits theaters.


Theme? We don't need no stinkin' theme!
