SHIVERS
aka THEY CAME FROM WITHIN
1975, 87 min, Canada, Dir: David Cronenberg

The film that jump-started director David Cronenberg's career and one of the most assured, thrilling genre movies ever made. Cronenberg introduces us to a world where aphrodisiac parasites genetically created by renegade science threaten to destroy civilized society as we know it. A doctor (Paul Hampton) and nurse (Lynn Lowry) at an island-bound high rise apartment complex discover tenants are being infected with a sexually transmitted organism that inspires insatiable desire in its hosts. With Barbara Steele.
