Name that film... sci fi desert alternate reality

Hi All,

So, I remember watching a film late at night / evening in the 90's. It would have been on TV so potentially an 80s film. I have spent many evenings trying to search it down but have struggled to do so. The salient points are a little blurry but here's what I remember:

- In some kind of desert environment

- Potentially alternate reality / VR / time travel

- People would die in a very specific unwrapping special effect - at the time I remember thinking this effect was exceptionally good

- I want to say it has a "western" feel to it? Also maybe something to do with a lift?

Sorry it's all so hazy - it's very unlikely that someone will know the film but given how hard I have looked I figured it was worth a try!

Any ideas most welcome.

It doesn't give much to go on

Could it be Until the Until the End of the World (1991)? I haven't seen it since it first came out, so my memory of it is hazy.

@Smilla​ I think you may be right. There is an important subplot sort of related to VR where a man is trying to record the memories/visual experience of his mom before she dies (I think).
