“I think of horror films as art, as films of confrontation. 

Films that make you confront aspects of your own life

that are difficult to face. Just because you’re making a horror film

doesn’t mean you can’t make an artful film.” 

                                                         David Cronenberg

4. Dead Ringers (1988)


                       

 “I’ve often thought that there should be

 beauty contests for the ‘insides’ of bodies” 

Elliot Mantle

3. Crash (1996)

“I mean a crashed car with a history. Camus’ Facel Vega,

Nathaniel West’s station wagon, Grace Kelly’s Rover 3500.

Just fix it enough to get it rolling.

Don’t clean it, don’t touch anything else.”    Vaughan

 2. The Fly (1986)

“You’re changing Seth. Everything about you is changing.

You look bad. You smell bad.”   Veronica Quaife

1. Videodrome (1983)

The battle for the mind of North America will be fought in the video arena:

the Videodrome.

The television screen is the retina of the mind’s eye.

Therefore, the television screen is part of the physical structure of the brain. Therefore, whatever appears on the television screen

emerges as raw experience for those who watch it.

Therefore, television is reality,

 and reality is less than television.” Brian O’Blivion

Enjoy the flesh…
