Let the Cronenberg commence: Cronenberg Episode 1: Shivers (1975)

In David Cronenberg's first feature film, Shivers, a scientist develops an aphrodisiac/STD hybrid that infects the residents of an elite Canadian high-rise. This film sets the tone for much of Cronenberg's future work and highlights his use of extensive and disturbing gore effects. Though none of the Movie Bonfire contributors found this to be a particularly "good" film, it definitely sparked plenty of debate. Shivers may be over three decades old, but it still has enough edgy moments to give you... shivers!
