"What is that? Some kind of big bug?"

Thirteen year old me would've absolutely adored this, and it's a shame he missed out. He was a total sucker for these late 90s VR movies.

It hasn't aged really well, the techno-cheese is heavy, and there are obviously some other problems, but let's just appreciate what Cronenberg did here to make virtual reality weird and gross and highly sexual all at the same time. Always lube your bioports before jacking in, kids.

And where is Willem Dafoe's Oscar?
