A film fan of most genres, particularly horror and westerns.
Definitely my favourite Hitchcock and in turn one of my favourite movies of all time.
This particular viewing is my first since I stood in awe in front of one of the original Mount Rushmore backdrops, which is housed in the Academy museum in Los Angeles. That aside, there is just something which really clicks for me with this film. It's a real twisty turny, fast paced thrilling, funny, jaw dropping, absolute crackerjack of a viewing experience. Hugely impressive soundtrack too.
A couple are haunted by the reappearance of his dead girlfriend every time they have sex. A brilliant concept, marvellously realised in this bloody, icky, pervy little Brit Flick, which I loved.
My only concern was that it kept appearing to end, and then went on a bit more. However, on reflection, I think it needed that extra breathing space, in order to deliver the full force of the ending.
One of my favourites of Frightfest 2015.
Cronenberg's most commercial film is surprisingly one of his most gross - in a good way of course. There are some keys scenes in this movie, which live with you for years and will have turned as many on to the rest of his work as they turned off. For me the vomit drop destroying Flesh and the maggot baby are those key scenes that I still find a little hard to watch!
Golblum is twitchy and odd. Perfect casting.…
