Deep Red  (1994)
Nomination Year: 2007
SYNOPSIS: This movie is like something you'd get if you used a computer program to randomly generate hardboiled detective novel dialog and then ran it all together at random. Every line, every shot, every event, is a cliche. A group of scientists lead by Dr. Newmeyer (John de Lancie) discovers nanites -- called Reds -- that can cure disease, turn back aging, and even bring back the dead. Unfortunately, Newmeyer is evil, so his chief scientist steals the Deep Red -- the breeder nanite -- and hides it in his eight-year-old daughter. The family then hires washed-up detective Joe Keyes to keep them safe from Newmeyer and his evil milkmen (don't ask) until the bad guys' nanites pass their sell-by date and they all lose their superpowers.
