Mindwarp is an apt title but still a fun little movie with a solid performance from Mr. B-Movie Bruce Campbell and a nice introduction to Marta Alicia, although her career has since been comprised on guest appearances on a variety of television shows.

Plot Outline: Starring cult horror veterans Bruce Campbell (Evil Dead) and Angus Scrimm (Phantasm), Mindwarp tells the grisly tale of a post-apocalyptic society in which the privileged exist only as “Dreamers,” eternally plugged into a virtual reality fantasyland, Inworld, while the ravaged Outworld, humans have mutated into savage flesh-eaters, led by a mysterious, charismatic despot (ELIZABETH KENT) interested only in survival.
SPECIAL FEATURES – 0.5/5
Only items on the disc are a nice Isolated Score Track and a TV Spot.
VIDEO – 3.25/5
Arriving on Blu-ray courtesy of Twilight Time, Mindwarp is presented with a 1080p high-definition transfer and a 1.85 widescreen aspect ratio. Considering this is a low-budget affair and never looked the best, this transfer doesn’t look half bad with some OK detail levels and the colors are oversaturated, though that’s how it was intended. There is some splotchy parts and from time to rime dust marks.
AUDIO – 3.5/5
The movie only comes with a DTS-HD MA Stereo track but it’s actually pretty good with clear dialogue coming from the center speaker and most other elements like ambient noises, mutant grunting and such comprising the remaining channels. It’s nothing that will show off your system, however it’s more than I expected given the source material.
OVERALL – 2.5/5
Overall, Mindwarp is an apt title but still a fun little movie with a solid performance from Mr. B-Movie Bruce Campbell and a nice introduction to Marta Alicia, although her career has since been comprised on guest appearances on a variety of television shows. The Blu-ray released by Twilight Time is thin on features but the audio/video aren’t too bad but they’re nothing to write home about either.
