Their tiny battles and not-so-tiny heartbreaks play out in the empty aisles, becoming more gripping than the lackluster, second-run movies on screen.

In Cronenberg's most elaborate work of crypto-pornographic body horror, a video-game designer flees an assassin in the virtual reality she coded. Unlike so much metal-and-LED VR, one joins the game through excretory-looking "bio-ports" and shoots guns made of flesh and bone: rather than ask about the humanity of machines, Cronenberg asks about the machinery of humans.
