    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.
