Corpse Run at Cinequest

Corpse Run is an entertaining coming-of-age movie about a group of PC gamers. It’s a low-budget Reality Bites, with a lot more beautiful people then you would expect see playing video games 24/7. Director and writer John-Michael Thomas creatively uses random inserts of game modes, voice-overs and the Windows blue screen of death to keep the narrative going. The characters aren’t that deep, but they are fun to watch, especially Brea Grant as Liberty, the flamboyant fan girl, and Jen Nickolaisen as the quirky love interest. The movie both pays homage to and gently mocks this generation. Should be just right for anyone with a bit of nostalgia for the ’80s, as it tries to throw in a reference to that decade about every two seconds.Shows at Cinequest Feb. 27 at 9:30pm and March 1 at 1:30pm at San Jose Rep, and March 4 at 5pm at Camera 12.
