Three young people try to pitch a new technology for communication to a large cellular company in order to receive funding to further test their product. Upon rejection from that company, one of the three makes the rash decision to test the products on themselves. Upon the initial test, the new technology seems to work fine, but soon after the three discover that the technology has a ‘Glitch’. The story revolves around the effects of the glitch, which seem to give some of the friends ‘super’ powers or abilities. Eventually, it turns into a battle with inventor of the technology against the other two friends in a fight against good and evil.

prizm4 » I'm still trying to work out what this movie is called (Glitch or Static?), but either way it's actually a pretty good TV movie. About the only lame part of the movie is the credit sequence, which has an early 90s look to it. Other than that, things are pretty good, considering. The characters generally have more of a realistic, down-to-earth feel to them rather than typical Hollywood cardboard cutouts.
It did get a little Hollywood-ish near the end with the 'bad guy', but all up the movie held my interest more than I expected.
Definitely worth giving a go.
