Advantages: High-grade virtual images.
Disadvantages: Not entertainment - just vile. Some of the visual inventiveness may blow you away and you'll be sick to the stomach.
Jennifer Lopez looks gorgeous as child psychologist Catherine Deane but what she has to do for a job is just way too gruesome for the average Saturday night cinema-goer.
Deane's job is to enter the minds of disturbed and comatose children through an ultra-modern virtual reality experiment.
She has to delve into their subconscious and try to make them wake up.
Her work is not going to well but it takes a serious turn for the worse when she agrees to help the FBI by entering the mind of a comatose schizophrenic serial killer.
Carl Stargher (Vincent D'Onofrio) keeps his female victims in a tank of water for 40 hours before raping and slaughtering them.
He's been leaving clues for the police, taunting them. And they're hot on his trail when his sick brain erupts and sends him into a coma.
Meanwhile, his next victim - played by Tara Subkoff - is still trapped in his torture tank. Can Deane enter his sewer-like mind and find out where the girl's hidden?
