This trailer for MINDGAMERS is all kinds of wrong

1 min read


Mindgamers is an upcoming sci-fi thriller from Terra Mater Film Studios that serves as a tie-in movie to Red Bull’s (yes, the energy drink) Mission: Unlock Enoch mind gaming tournament that’s currently running. You can see what that’s all about here, but right now we’re going to take a look at what someone thinks the future of mind gaming can become.

The official plot synopsis is as follows:

A group of brilliant young students discover the greatest scientific breakthrough of all time: a wireless neural network, connected via a quantum computer, capable of linking the minds of each and every one of us.

They realise that quantum theory can be used to transfer motor-skills from one brain to another, a first shareware for human motor-skills. They freely spread this technology, believing it to be a first step towards a new equality and intellectual freedom.

But they soon discover that they themselves are part of a much greater and more sinister experiment as dark forces emerge that threaten to subvert this technology into a means of mass-control.

That looks bad. And not the kind of bad where you can kick back and have some laughs as its expense, but honest-to-goodness rubbish that makes your brain shut down in self-defense. Too pretty people who’re all edgy and unique save the world from the machinations of a pay cheque-earning Sam Neill/evil scientist, all while babbling science-y words and philosophical thoughts as deep as an evaporated puddle.

I want the 2:20 I lost watching that trailer back. Who thought this was a good idea?

What do you think?

Mindgamers is due for release in March 2017. Directed by Andrew Goth, who co-wrote alongside Joanne Reay, it stars Sam Neill, Tom Payne, Melia Kreiling, Antonia Campbell-Hughes and Turlough Convery.
