I remember seeing this movie (or TV show) when I was a kid (around 1999). My memories are very vague.
- I remember the main characters were a guy and a girl.
- They had some kind of device, which in retrospect looks like a genetically engineered organism. I remember it had small finger-like appendages that they would use as controls.
- This creature somehow enabled the main characters to visit a parallel universe (or virtual reality) which was indistinguishable from the real world. There was some symbolism here comparing this virtual reality to the internet.
- At some point during the movie, one of the main characters kills someone, and there was some confusion regarding if it happened inside the virtual world or not. I'm not completely sure but I think the person was actually killed in the real world by accident.
