In the 21st century, families rely on technology to do everything. Technology helps us clean, cook, do homework, do our jobs, and even entertain. More than ever, many families rely on technology to protect themselves in their homes.
In Michelle Danner’s Bad Impulse, the film is a psychological thriller about a family’s spiral downturn after installing a new computerized security system in their home.
The movie stars Grant Bowler, Sonya Walger, Paul Sorvino, James Landry Hebert, Stephanie Cayo, Dan Lauria, and Rebecca Black. Danner directed the film from a script written by Jason Chase Tyrrell.
Here’s the official synopsis:
In the aftermath of a traumatic event, Henry Sharpe (Bowler), a suburban husband and father buys a cutting-edge security system from a mysterious man (Sorvino), only to find it slowly destroys the family he most wants to protect.
Soon after getting the controversial anklets attached to everyone, Henry’s wife, Christine Sharpe (Walger), noticed her behavior change as well as the behavior of their teenage daughter Angela (Ford), and their sons Mike and Sam (Nicholas Alexander and Oscar Debler). Christine becomes attracted to her co-worker Liam (Coussins). This will culminate in a fight for their lives.
