Around 2005-2010 I watched a movie:

  • I believe there was a female and male lead
  • The movie did not seem like one of the really high budget movies
  • They are part of a game and they are in a virtual reality somewhere. I distinctly remember that they have metal detectors and therefore smuggled guns made out of organic material.
  • I seem to recall there being a lot of secrecy and hiding
  • There is some sort of plot twist / open interpretation in the end scene when they return from the game and it is unclear whether they are still in a game or if they have returned to reality. A lot of people are sitting in a circle connected to they "VR headsets" or something similar.

What is the name of this movie?

"eXistenZ" (1999) by David Cronenberg

Per wikipedia, it had a budget of $15 million dollars (US).

Per the wikipedia article's plot description:

Antenna Research's Allegra Geller (Jennifer Jason Leigh), the world's preeminent game designer, is testing her latest virtual reality game, eXistenZ, with a focus group at a seminar. She is shot in the shoulder by an assassin named Noel Dichter (Kris Lemche) with an organic pistol, which is undetectable by security. As Dichter is gunned down by the security team, security guard (and marketing trainee) Ted Pikul (Jude Law) rushes to Geller and escorts her outside.

  • Oh, I remember this movie! I remember the organic gun that shot teeth, which I'm pretty sure were the would-be assassin's.... – Fund Monica's Lawsuit Apr 7 '17 at 3:53
  • @Luciano thanks for the edit suggestion, but the youtube link works fine on this end of the internet. – Mr. Kennedy Apr 11 '17 at 12:53
  • What a remarkable cast for such a ... dubious-looking film. – KRyan Oct 10 '17 at 18:21
