Award-winning virtual reality and content studio 'Hammerhead VR' introduced a virtual reality movie that simulates horrific experiences being inflicted on viewers by an evil robot. It is based on the 2013 short film 'ABE,' which was written and directed by Rob McLellan. Simulating torture and a severely unwanted love obsession, the twisted robot has a chillingly calm voice that massively adds to the creepy experience.

Working with advanced technology to break and push viewing boundaries, Hammerhead VR worked tirelessly on 3D visualization development to create a world that's shockingly authentic in its virtual reality movie. The trailer offers just a quick bite of 'ABE VR,' which has yet to be released, but it teases the robot's torturous tools and exposes its coldness.

What is most disturbing about the film is the lack of humanity that the robot possesses, being that it is a creation that has never been able to feel pain or emotion and therefore totally lacks empathy and mercy.
