First time I saw a head explode. Great film.
Whilst many people watching this film for the first time now, may find it a bit slow. For fans who saw it many years ago, youll love revisiting this classic Cronenberg thriller. Michael Ironside is fantastic as the villainous Revok and the picture quality of this digital version of the film looks glorious.
Cronenberg at his best.
STRANGE, TWISTED, CLASSIC CRONENBURG. THE FILM HAS A TENSION OF DREAD FROM THE VERY START. AN UNEASY WATCH THE MUSIC AND SOUND EFFECTS ARE CRONEN GOLD. 80S SCORE AND GORE
