“Eldritch Code” is a horror short film by Ivan Radavic.
Glen Cadigam plays an IT guy in a typical pre-Covid (this is 2018) workplace (reminds me of “Office Space”) and he becomes suspicious of Susan at her workstation and takes her computer.
He replaces the infected hardware and firmware, but soon the virus comes back anyway. It had somehow stored itself in a cloud and reloaded.
Then the computer rather exploded and engulfs him on an interstellar journey to restart civilization.
What if a computer virus could infect humans?
