I'm trying to remember a TV movie where a person gets plugged in using an organic cord in their back to explore a virtual world

  • What kind of virtual world was it? Was the person a lady-person or a man-person? When did you watch it?

    It is most definitely eXistenZ. It is a Canadian film from the late 90s (not a TV movie, but perhaps you saw it on the television) by "body horror" director David Cronenberg. It stars Jude Law, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Willem Defoe, and Ian Holm. (I like it.)

The use of an "organic cord" reminds me of eXistenZ.

You can see the connecting cables here at timestamp 39:09

  • Given that this movie was released within weeks of The Matrix it's a miracle that anyone remembers it.

    After seeing eXistenZ, you may never feel the same about Chinese food again.

    @Praxis - It's not one to watch while eating...
