Kill Switch is a video-game inspired expansion/re-imagining of director Tim Smit’s short film from 2009 entitled What’s In The Box? While that short garnered huge interest due to its alluded connection with the legendary Half-Life video game series, Kill Switch claims its own identity by building a world separate from any existing sci-fi franchise. With game-style first person perspective segments and a near-future alternate reality, Kill Switch is an engaging, though somewhat shallow, experience that’s worth the 91-minute runtime.
Despite being chock-full of ancillary characters than don’t have any real function, the slick presentation, solid acting, and moderately engaging plotline make Kill Switch worth a watch. Check out my full review with details and screenshots at HorrorNews.Net!
