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

"October 25 "I loathe to eat alone. It makes me feel so fat and lonely." This was a bad movie. It's one of David Cronenberg's earliest movies and it REALLY shows here. It was very boring, the directing was sluggish, the dialogue was weak and the acting was really bad. I don't get why this movie has a cult status. It may have a few interesting moments, but it's doesn't deserve to be called a cult classic."

"First viewing - Oct. 31st Cronenberg trio Netflix Instant Project 2014Recommended by VierasTalo Because this is Cronenberg's debut I went into it with low expectations and otherwise had no idea what to expect. As it turns out this wound up being my favorite of the three films of his I watched on Halloween. For a no-name cast everyone does an excellent job, the horror aspects are a great mix of fun and intense, the effects are solid for a low budget flick, and I thought the whole thing worked wo"

"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"

Diseases/Pandemics in Films (19 movies items)

" 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."
