Nice to see Cronenberg heavily represented.

But, I see Shivers is absent from your list; my favourite Cronenberg film after Videodrome.

I'm also a big Bob Clark fan, with Black Christmas and Deathdream high up on my favourite horror list. I also really like his odd zombie dark comedy: Children Shouldn't Play with Dead Things.

I just remembered that Canadians created the whole Ilsa series!

Now feast your eyes on this (just stumbled upon this one)!

Anyone remember a canadian horror called sweet angel mine?

It came out on vhs about ten years ago then dissapeared completely. It was rather good.

Also, aside from cronenberg, how about the classic nasty visiting hours? That was a great movie.

I wish i'd kept a vhs tape of sweet angel mine, definately due a re-issue somewhere down the line...


Visiting hours is a cracking film, you must see it.

As for other canadian stuff, I must confess to enjoying Cannibal girls, and the wonderful sci-fi classic series Lexx, now out in a spiffy box set!.

One episode at least was directed by jorge buttergeit (it was a german co-production) the ultra twisted epsiode called 791.

pps..... any news on a humongous dvd release?

I used to own the old embassy uk vhs pre-cert tape and loved it.

Ditched all my vids when I upgraded to dvd (much to my regret) and would love to see it again.

Strange that it is, due to Clarke's other productions being Canadian.

Other Canadian films worth a mention are the Cube series - a decent trio of movies with some creative traps and gore as well as some intelligent writing behind them, too.
