Day 12

SHIVERS (1975)
a.k.a. They Came From Within

Cronenberg's debut is what you would call 'rough around the edes'. It's crudely made. Cronenberg has yet to master his technique and the pacing/editing of the piece clearly shows this. That aside, what Cronenberg does do right is provoke a strong sense of isolation, paranoia and fear. It's an unsettling film that really gets under the skin.
