A good movie

I wasn't really sure what to expect from this movie but since I always had a weak spot for David Cronenberg's work, I was quite eager to check it out. Well, it turned out to be one of these cheap Canadian horror movies he made at the beginning of his career but even though I didn't care much for the other ones he made ('Rabid', 'Shivers'), this one however still managed to grab me somehow. I mean, to be honest, the acting was not really strong, nothing much happened through most of the duration and not everything that did happen made much sense but, even so, the damned thing was just weird and creepy enough to keep me intrigued until the very end. Eventually, the ending was pretty much the only really remarklable thing in this movie with the usual Cronenberg's body horror trademark and it was again pretty weird and gruesome. You have to give Cronenberg some credit to manage to deliver something watchable from such a rather preposterous concept and, in fact, when it was released, it was completely dismissed by such major critics like Roger Ebert and Leonard Maltin. Anyway, to conclude, even though it was nothing really amazing, I thought it was a decent watch and it is definitely worth a look, especially if you like the genre or if you are interested in David Cronenberg's work.
