Cyberpunk Horror

Cyberpunk horror movies provide a diverse cross-over subgenre. Japanese cyberpunk movies like Tetsuo - The Ironman show up next to more “traditional” horrors like VideoDrome. Cyberpunk movies will end up in this category if they seem to have a primary goal to scare or “horrify” the audience. Like all of my themes categories, I don’t distinguish here between movies and animes (which are very influential in cyberpunk) - you will see both listed.

And yes, I realize I don’t have all cyberpunk horror movies listed…yet. I’m still in the process of uploading my reviews. If you have one in mind that you don’t see here, let me know, and I’ll bump it up in priority.

I am surprised that “Repo Man” didn’t make the list. With aliens, government cover-ups and crooked cops I think that it should be included on the list

imho Videodrome is not a “traditional” horror movie, it is brilliant in it’s surrealism and absurdism.

Seems like brainscan, arcade, horrorvision and a few other game/web horror flicks would be on there. I’d even settle for seeing evolver on that list. Just my thought though. I think I have an absurd attraction to b-class films from the 80s/early 90s..

I LOVE CYBERPUNK-HORROR! This is the stuff nightmares are made of for me. All my nightmares are gruesome cybeypunk-horrors. Kanye West new song Any Way makes me think of these or synthesizers and Miami Vice. A fucking beautiful Genre.

I’m not sure how many are out there but I can think of one off the top of my head: “Screamers 2″ or “Jason X”, but then again I’m wondering about really real cyberpunk horror too. Cyberpunk horror rulez!

I suggest two movies:

“Virus” with Jamie Lee Curtis and Joanna PacuƂa
It’s about ship terrorized by alien signal which take control of all machines on ship. It’s like ghost ship with ghosts replaced by robots.

And “Demon seed” about scientist’s wife trapped in house controlled by AI.

Greetings from polish fan. This site is brilliant!

“Paranoia 1.0″ is also cyberpunk-horror.
