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 straightforward 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 wa... read more

Description: Canadian auteur David Cronenberg has spent much of his career mining our fears about sex, technology, and corporeal existence, but this breakout feature is perhaps the most shocking of all his body-horror visions. Starliner Towers is just another high-rise apartment building until something terrible begins to go wrong. A terrifying parasite has taken hold, infecting everyone and turning normal people into sex-crazed, deranged, and violent hosts who are committing uncontrollable acts of mindless violence. A doctor races to contain the infection before it spreads from the building to the entire city. There’s nowhere to hide and ... (more)

" Date: 4/28/2021 Viewed: Blu-Ray Re-watch Note: I've been meaning to rewatch Shivers for a while now after buying the Vestron Blu-ray a few months ago. Shivers is still a great movie in my opinion. This was David Cronenberg's first feature film, and he knocks it out of the park. Shivers has the blood, gore, and dark atmosphere that you would find in his later movies. The practical effects are sick and gross looking in my opinion. Even by today's standers, I feel like some people may want to t"

"Varhainen Cronenberg oli niin räkäinen kuin oletinkin. Seksihullun mustamakkarapökäleen seikkailuissa on kuitenkin jotain sympaattista ja ohjaajan tyylin ja mieleiset teemat on tunnistettavissa jo tässä varhaisteoksessa. "

Shivers

“The human anatomy, both from horror and sexual perspectives, and a major distrust of technology and societal permissiveness runs throughout David Cronenberg’s body of work. 1975’s Shivers was Cronenberg’s first feature-length film, and a preview of his oeuvre. Following the, uh, we’ll call them misadventures of a phallic-looking parasite that’s responsible for transforming an entire luxury apartment community, if not all of Canada, into a satirical vision of 70s high life and free love. Free love isn’t free and Cronenberg argues that it’s as strict an ideology and movement as what it was reacting against. With nowhere to run and nowhere to hide from the all-consuming infection, there’s only one way this could end: an orgy in the swimming pool that’s as much about sexual f” read more
