Opening night (last night) at the David Cronenberg retrospective was awesome! So good to see Videodrome on the big screen – but if you missed it, fear not, it repeats again at The Cinematheque on April 11th.*
But this weekend, some of the BEST early Cronenberg is on glorious display, featuring newly-struck 35mm prints – this Friday/Saturday our good friends at The Cinematheque are featuring a double-dose of the Baron of Blood (as he’s formerly and affectionately known as)… His Canadian body-horror classics Shivers (aka They Came from Within) and Rabid – two of my all-time favourites!
6:30 pm: Shivers — 8:15 pm: Rabid
6:30 pm: Rabid — 8:20 pm: Shivers

And you might want to check out his early short films, including From the Drain, on Sunday, April 6th for more info on FROM WITHIN, have a gander at The Cinematheque.
*(Videodrome screens again at 6:30 pm on April 11th).
