Special Guest: Craig Bierko
Josef Rusnak's The Thirteenth Floor, a sci-fi flick from 1999, was mistaken for a "Matrix rip-off" upon release. The film was based on the 1964 Daniel F. Galouye novel Simulacron-3 (aka Counterfeit World) and was also the basis for Rainer Werner Fassbinder's World on a Wire.
