Entertainment Reviews:

Premiere - 06/01/1999
"...Powerful, intelligent, disturbing, and, believe it or not, fun movie, one that's worth seeing multiple times..."
Entertainment Weekly - 10/22/1999
"...Unusually witty....The psychological depths Cronenberg reaches are tingling to fathom..." -- Rating: B+
New York Times - 04/23/1999
"...EXISTENZ has the oozing, throbbing, ghoulish hallmarks of other Cronenberg fever dreams..."
Box Office - 06/01/1999
"....Cronenberg's observations reflect the concern that technology is replacing social interaction....[With] complex themes and even more complex plot..."
USA Today - 04/23/1999
"...The acting is good, there are provocative moments and Cronenberg has a sharp ending up his sleeve..."
Los Angeles Times - 04/23/1999
"...A provocative entertainment....The Cronenberg trademarks are here in full force....Sci-fi fantasy/horror doesn't get more sophisticated than EXISTENZ..."

Product Description:

A renowned international virtual reality game designer (Jennifer Jason Leigh), creator of a new interactive game called eXistenZ, becomes the target of an assassination plot by a group of religious fanatics. She is forced to go into hiding with a novice security guard (Jude Law) sworn to protect her.

A psychosexual mindbender from director David Cronenberg.

Production Notes:

  • In the original script, the game was not going to be played on camera, but as writer-director David Cronenberg got more into it, the game began to become more and more important.
  • EXISTENZ was the first film that Cronenberg wrote and directed since VIDEODROME.
  • Salman Rushdie's battle against the fatwa taken out on his life served as inspiration for Cronenberg when working on EXISTENZ.
