Ok have almost nothing to go on. Earlier or around the time of Matrix, May have starred Keane Reeves but maybe not. About gamers getting sucked into a game where they could die but were so addicted they couldn’t stop playing .Memorable scene is a group of gamers getting plugged into the game via a portal intothe flesh of their backs. Hero has to enter the game to rescue others . At the time I thought it was far fetched but clearly the makers were very forward thinking.

Been bugging me for years.

With Jude Law and Jennifer Connolly (I think)- haven’t seen it in years but the flesh portal thing is definitely there.

That’s it! Blimey. I would never have got that in a million years. Thank you.

I loved that film. Was a David cronenburg. I also liked his film crash.

Argh the weird gun made from alien flesh is about all I can remember from that

No probs! I’m sure I remember getting that film out of the village paper shop at least twice. It seemed very cool in 1999.

Thanks again Jem. My recollection of the movie was a bit off but having googled it this was definitely it. It had been bugging me for years. Smile

Saw Existenz in a 2nd hand DVD shop a while back. Bought it as remembered finding it confusing back in the day. Makes more sense with a re-watch, still deliberately brain bashing though

Tooth gun anyone?
