David Cronenberg (director, Canada) go to comments
He is one of the principal originators of what is sometimes known as he “body horror” genre, which explores people’s fears of bodily transformation and infection! He is also known as the director who films “unfilmable novels”. Although he’s “trying too hard” to shock, his movies are dead-serious – funny, in a way!...

Caution: gratuitously (and pretentiously?) disgusting and “sick”, but interesting and out of the ordinary!

favorite movies list

Dead ringers (1988)
The lives and mutual murder/suicide of identical twin gynecologists!

Videodrome (1983)

Crash (1996)
(based on J.G. Ballard book)
... warm and uplifting … (maybe not).

eXistenZ (1999)

Note: David Cronenberg, as an actor, played a scary serial killer (Dr. Philip K. Decker) in Nightbreed (1990) (Directed by Clive Barker, based on his own novel “Cabal“) a very cool stupid horror movie where the mutants/monsters are the “good” ones and the humans (rednecks and the serial killer doctor) the “bad” ones!
