The big screen remake of the classic 80s cartoon, sees 'Jem and the Holograms' lose their spark for the YouTube generation.
Taking a classic cartoon and trying to remake it for the big screen is always a tricky business, but in the case of the new Jem and the Holograms movie it’s a critical disaster. The live-action remake of the beloved 80s cartoon hit US cinemas this weekend, leaving a sour taste in the mouth of critics who were left wondering, what happened to the once ‘truly outrageous’ Jem?

Starring Aubrey Peeples as Jerrica aka Jem, the film’s plot revolves around the shy teen struggling with fame after becoming an internet sensation. After being discovered on Youtube, Jem lands a record deal and her own band, The Holograms (played by Stefanie Scott, Hayley Kiyoko and Aurora Perrineau, but it's not all one big rock and roll fantasy.

Instead of wrapping up a trilogy, writer-turned-director Leigh Whannell launches a new horror franchise with a movie that's scary even if it's not particularly original. Its trump card is a strong central performance from the wonderful Lin Shaye, who plays out a sort of origin story (although they could still go back further) for her memorable character from the first two movies.
She's Elise, a medium in touch with the spirits of the dead, and as this story starts she's closed down her practice for good. Then the bright teenager Quinn (Sophie Scott) shows up, desperate to speak to her recently deceased mother while she makes important decisions as high school comes to an end. But Quinn has inadvertently made contact with a much more malevolent spirit in her apartment building, and when her father (Dermot Mulroney) realises that her life is in danger, he convinces Elise to help. Meanwhile, Quinn's little brother Alex (Tate Berney) gets in touch with Spectral Sightings internet ghostbusters Tucker and Specs (Angus Sampson and Whannell), who are about to see their first real ghost.
The film looks terrific, from the everyday creep-outs in the creeky old houses and apartments to the much darker atmosphere of "the further", which Elise has to enter in order to rescue Quinn from "the man who can't breathe" (Michael Reid MacKay), a seriously gruesome spirit who isn't content just haunting the living: he wants them to join him. Shaye delivers a performance that's unusually complex for this genre, as Elise struggles to balance her past and present with a flood of emotions, a reluctant determination to help and a generous sense of prickly humour. Mulroney also adds some weight as a concerned single dad at the end of his tether. And Scott has a promising charisma in the opening scenes, less so when the plot reduces her to a scream queen.

A year and a half ago, a young girl lost her mother. She misses her every day, and continues to relate the stories of her life to her mother, hoping that she can still be heard. The problem is, if you make contact with one ghost, all the ghosts can hear you. When Quinn (Stefanie Scott) becomes the subject of attention for a particularly harrowing phantom, Elise Rainier (Lin Shaye) is forced to reluctantly agree to use her powers of communicating with the dead, with the hopes of freeing Quinn from the creature that has now possessed her.

Jerrica Benton lives an uneventful life with her sister Kimber, Aunt Bailey and her foster daughters - but all that's about to change. Jerrica has a secret talent for music, and Kimber doesn't want her to keep it to herself. She secretly films her playing a song and uploads it on to the internet where it goes viral. Pretty soon, they are recruited by the biggest record company in the world who want to turn them, in turn, into the biggest pop group in the world. That means changing their image, their personalities and even their names as Jerrica and her sisters become Jem and the Holograms. The world of fans and touring might be amazing, but pretty soon tensions within the group start to rise as fame causes them to lose sight of who they really are underneath the facade.
