Here's what my TV Guide has to say about it:

Thriller 3:00 Virtual Obsession: "A scientist and his family become the
targets of a vindictive young woman who downloadas her brain into a
supercomputer and stalks them after having her heart broken."

Hmm... just from this, it doesn't sound like a happy ending for the
extropian. Is this movie really going to open people's minds to the idea
of uploading/extropian ideas, or just make them associate it with
"vindictive young stalker women"? (or can you answer that question without
giving way too much of the plot?)
