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

An average movie

Nowadays, David Cronenberg has become a respected director and he has specialized himself in some rather straigh-forward dramas but, at the beginning of his career, he was famous for making some rather nasty and unsettling horror features.

“Nowadays, David Cronenberg has become a respected director and he has specialized himself in some rather straigh-forward dramas but, at the beginning of his career, he was famous for making some rather nasty and unsettling horror features. This movie is a fine example. To be honest, I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this movie but since I always had a weak spot for David Cronenberg, I was quite eager to check it out. From the same era, from the same director, I also saw ‘Rabid’ which I found rather disappointing but I thought that this horror feature was not bad. I mean, sure, it wasn’t really original but I really enjoyed the mood. Indeed, like many other movies that Cronenberg would direct later on in his career, the whole thing was pretty much a filmed nightmare and even” read more

"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"
