The new DVD “Dark Corners” will hit store shelves on May 22, 2007 and it tells the story of a young woman whose life becomes a nightmarish place where the line between her idyllic suburban family life and her terrifying subconscious world becomes very blurred.

    I’m surprised no one on the podcast had heard of ‘Collosus: The Forbin Project’. It is a sci-fi classic, and one of my favorite man vs. computer sci-fi movies of all time.

    The early 70’s computer technology looks *very* dated now, but the story is excellent!
