MSPIFF 2015: If you’ve got some pre-teens or teens in your house, they might enjoy this mild thriller about a young boy who discovers a camera with a usb stick attached to it. Upon loading of the usb stick onto his computer, a 3d/VR game appears that lures him into a hard bargain: if he plays and loses  the game, a girl dies. But this isn’t just a video game, there are real-world results.

The live action portions are fine but the CGI looks like a basic video game (which I guess it is, so probably completely intentional). My young kids thought it was great, but adults may find the plot and peril somewhat thin and the graphics merely adequate.
