So lately I've gotten into Cronenberg just a bit.
First I watched Videodrome a couple weeks ago. Took me a couple viewings before I could finally get into it, but the last 20 minutes are off the charts and basically any scene that is in the dark where he is watching Videodrome or hallucinating is freaking awesome in my opinion.
Then I watched the Brood and this is just a different type of scary right here. Videodrome was scary but it was really badass as well. Brood was just one of the more scary films I've ever seen. Cronenberg's ability to take a ridiculously campy idea, and keep it campless is just unreal. Takes the idea of something that might normally be a B movie, and keeps it real enough to make it an A movie.
Obviously the Fly is acclaimed...
I'm going to watch SHIVERS one of these nights...
Anyone else here been on an old school Cronenberg kick lately?
I also downloaded an episode from the Friday the 13th 1987 TV series that is bound to be great directed by Cronenberg.
