    Question A building takes over/things coming out of tv's

    Hi everyone, new to the site - very helpful forum - hope you guys can help me

    I only remember very vague details about this movie and it may be more sci-fi than horror, but it scared me when I saw it when I was younger.

    An office building, in the states - skyscraper, takes over - has a brain. And a scene with something (static?) bulging from an old CRT telly.

    That's it - sorry about the vagueness, hope someone can help - this ones been bugging me for a long time.

    Thanks guys.

    Hi John,

    Thanks for that - yes the tv stuff is similar but the movie I'm thinking about was definitely American. Oh and I would have been watching it - late 80s / early 90s I think so the date of your movie was about right but just not the right country.

    Could be Poltergeist 3. It takes place in a highrise and I'm sure likely has a TV scene. Haven't watched it in a LONG time so maybe check it out.

    Hi guys,

    Thanks for your replies. I think I've worked out that I've melded two movies together in my mind, one would probably be Poltergeist III as you suggest strtfghtr but also Pulse, both from 1988.

    Thanks again.
