This movie left me in doubt, you can see glimpses of the legend that later became cronenberg, however I found the movie boring besides the countless holes in the script.
I think Cronenberg was still warming up, anyway it was worth watching it

"A scientist who has created a useful parasite finds out that this also makes the recipient obsessed with sex and a craving to reproduce This is early David Cronenberg stuff but has all his body horror trademarks and could be seen as a prequel to Videodrome. It starts well but descends quickly becoming quite laughable really - its really hard to take a parasite which looks like a mix of a turd, slug and penis seriously and its more like a dopey 1950s creature feature It has its moments and is w"

" Shivers, by David Cronenberg, was also titled The Parasite Murders upon first release, which gives you a clue as to what sort of disease you are going to get in this film. The parasite is created by Dr Emil Hobbs, who wants to create an organism that will free people from society’s imposed good behaviour rules . He experiments with a parasite and implants it "

"This is a chilling tale of a parasite that turns ordinary people into sex crazed psychos! It's a lot like Invasion Of The Body Snatchers as it's hard to know who's been infected until it's too late. Loved the very bleak ending. An impressive debut as a movie director for David Cronenberg."

"Yet another body horror film from David Cronenberg. The residents of a suburban high-rise apartment building are being infected by a strain of parasites that turn them into mindless, sex-crazed fiends out to infect others by the slightest sexual contact. This alien parasite at least has an effective way of spreading. Seeeeeeeeeeeeeex"

" By this movie is possible to see that since the beginning Cronenberg made his point. I think I need more time to elaborate a rightful comment about it. Meanwhile, click on the image and read the text on its right side."

"Paikoitellen pakkopullalta maistuvan leffan mieltä häiritsevät musat ja Cronenbergin hallitsemat hidastukset ovat Shiversin suola. Itse olen silti mielestäni nähnyt näitä muukalaiskakkapökäleleffoja jo ihan riittämiin, eikä aihe suoraan sanoen jaksanut tällä kertaa pitää hampaissaan. Ylimääräisiä pisteitä kuitenkin rainan loppupuolelle, jonka painajaismaisen sekava harhailu ympäri omituisuudessaan viehättäviä tapahtumia pullollaan olevaa taloa on napakymppi ja tuo tunnelm"
