2007, Universal, 104 min, USA, Dir: Félix Enríquez Alcalá

Part of Ronald D. Moore’s beloved and critically acclaimed re-imagining of “Battlestar Galactica,” this stand-alone telefilm chronicles the story of the Battlestar Pegasus and its unhinged commander, Admiral Helena Cain (a brilliant Michelle Forbes), from the original Cylon attack to its reunion with Commander Adama’s (Edward James Olmos) Battlestar Galactica.


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.


RABID
1977, Somerville House, 90 min, Canada/USA, Dir: David Cronenberg

Rose (Marilyn Chambers) undergoes experimental surgery after a motorcycle accident, something that has nightmarish results when she not only grows a new organ for sucking blood, but also contracts a virulent strain of rabies. Escaping from the clinic, and immune herself, Rose unknowingly spreads the contagion, leaving chaos in her wake as her boyfriend races against time to find her. One of director David Cronenberg’s most rip-roaring, rewarding chillers.
