Did he go soft from doing horror then move onto psychological theme film with Dead Ringers then step back to doing other genres. I still appreciate his movies but would be nice to for him to give us another body shocker horror.

His latest one is a body horror, people are giving it a lot of praise!

Speaking of these films has made me realise it's been many years since I saw The Dead Zone so it's well overdue a rewatch and The Simpsons probably had the best Naked Lunch joke ever written.

I forgot to mention that further up. It is a science fiction/horror which Rotten Tomatoes say is "Quintessential if not classic Cronenberg, Crimes of the Future finds the director revisiting familiar themes with typically unsettling flair."

I couldn't stick Cosmopolis but liked A Dangerous Method and thought Maps to the Stars was excellent.

Reminds me - Must look for Maps to the Stars on Blu.

French Dressing (1964)

Roy Kinnear and Euro hottie Marisa Mell star in this bawdy British seaside comedy inspired by Tati's Monsieur Hulot's Holiday and directed by Ken Russell.

That opening sentence should tell you if you want to watch it straight away.

For this quaint yet bawdy romp is utterly wonderful, undeniably British in it's saucy seaside humour and shit weather and for me something to cherish.

Snuff. 1975.

The exploits of a cult biker gang and real killings shown through a snuff movie.

We have a actress and her producer tagging along to make a movie and some jealousy from another woman shown stabbing a guy in the stomach. A thinner Charlie Manson wannabe cult leader and his deciples telling them it's ok to kill, a somewhat Mardi Gras parade and a mish mash dubbed film that is very much out of sync throughout the movie. I don't know if the dubbing made the acting terrible or the acting made the dubbing terrible, there was a nice gut wrenching going on towards the end. This goes to the category of "Now you have seen it, that's it".

Scream Blacula Scream. 1973.

The vampire Mamuwalde is resurrected by voodoo and goes on a killing spree hoping to be rid of his curse.

For anyone who loved Pam Grier in the 70s Blackxploitation movies will certainly love her as a love interest to the Dark Prince and being a voodoo queen in this sequel to Blackula. William Marshall returns to his role from the previous film, was the comedic parts intentional or unintentional? The pimp/thugs part was a bit of a laugh, this was a decent sequel and a bit more darker than it's predecessor.
