eXistenZ (1999)

Dimension Films
Directed by David Cronenberg
My rating: 2 stars out of 4
(DVD, Dimension)

A game designer survives an attempt on her life at a conference introducing her latest creation. She escapes with a naive marketing trainee whom she convinces to enter the virtual world of the game. They find more assassins planted as characters and struggle to distinguish what is real and what is not. Filled with Cronenberg's trademark gross-out imagery and some not-so-subtle sexual innuendo. It is both repellent and unintentionally hilarious.
