What if you could hack the human brain? What if it were possible for all human minds to sync together? What if we could create a new type of wireless network? That’s the premise of the new film “MindGamers,” which follows a group of brilliant young students that create a wireless neural network, connected via a quantum computer and capable of linking human minds. Watch the trailer for the film below.

In the film, the scientists engender the first human shareware by transferring motor skills from one brain to another. The gang sees it as a step towards a new equality and intellectual freedom, but they soon discover that they themselves are part of a much greater and more sinister experiment when dark forces threaten to subvert this technology into a means of mass-control.

The film is directed by Andrew Goth, who previously directed the films “Gallowwalkers,” about a cursed gunman who recruits a young warrior to help in the fight against a gang of zombies, and “B.U.S.T.E.D,” about an ongoing battle rages between Triad gangs and street gangs. It stars Sam Neill (“Jurassic Park”), Tom Payne (“The Walking Dead”), Dominique Tipper (“Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them”) and more.
