VIRTUAL NIGHTMARE is a pretty interesting, low budget TV movie heavily indebted to the likes of TOTAL RECALL, THE TRUMAN SHOW, and inevitably, THE MATRIX. It tells the story of an ordinary guy, a young professional, who begins to notice unusual 'glitches' in his everyday life - glitches that eventually convince him he's living a lie...
The concept of people living in a fantasy, virtual reality-style world is a familiar one, but it's the execution that makes VIRTUAL NIGHTMARE so engaging. Sure, the year 2000 special effects are dated, but scenes where the protagonist views 'tagged' items of furniture and the like are decent and well-handled. The acting is the worst thing about this, but it's not really important when the concept is the most interesting part of it. Ignore the low-rent antics and the frequent cheesiness of the narrative; focus instead on an engaging and unique little tale, one that's well told.
