    Shame it looks like a crappy transfer. Also eXistenZ has some of the worst post art I've seen. Looking at them they look like nothing I'd want to see yet the film is quite great. I assume it didn't make much money due to those.

    It looks like the same dated transfer source was used, same as on the US, Canadian & German Blu-rays... but perhaps with some additional edge enhancement added.

    I already own the German Mediabook, so it's looking like there isn't much of a reason (beyond a couple of additional extras) to upgrade.

    Ha ha! Yeah, I didn't bother checking it out for years because it just didn't look like something I would enjoy.

    It's a real shame as the film deserves better. Plus some newly done poster art lol.
    Yeah it looks totally cheap in that department. Like something you'd find in a bargain bin that's z grade trash thrown together by someone with little to no experience.

    So I gave this another watch to see if I wanted to pick it up and really didn't love it this time around. It just wasn't as good as I seemed to remember it being. I did really like that bone gun though. That was really cool and gross.

    per haps, its pretty negligible, they are the first two 1080p releases so both will look bette rin motion than previous releases
