Brainscan (1994)

Nomination Year: 2006
SYNOPSIS:  This one stars Edward Furlong as a creepy, outcast high school student whose unsavory habits lead him down a dark path of crime. (What a stretch, huh?) He beta-tests the latest video game, "Brainscan," which hypnotizes you into the action. But the game seems to be making him commit murders! And the game also seems to be controlled (possessed?) by an outlandish devil-character known as Trickster. As the body count rises, Michael tries to stop the game...but he can't resist. Even when the next victim is to be the cute neighbor girl he has the hots for, and vice-versa. But it's all just a game -- or is it?

Oblivious

Step One, Shine Flashlight -- Step Two, Look Where I'm Shining
I've seen referees with better eyesight than this! The cop shines his flashlight directly on our "hero" and doesn't see him. He starts to leave, hears a noise, comes back, shines his flashlight directly on him again and STILL doesn't see him!

"Alas, Poor Yorick"

"Now I've Got You!"
Having to struggle with the killer hits the principal like a ton of bricks.
