Shivers*

(1975) 3.5 Gretchens

Not so bad it's good,
So 70s it's awesome.
Cronenberg classic

"Violence, blood, and
Depraved sex," states one review.
A fair summary.

Aphrodisiac
Sexually transmitted
By a parasite

Infects residents
Of a luxury high-rise
Quick as wildfire

Not the walking dead
More like the walking horny
With plenty of boobs.

*Also released as: Orgy of the Blood Parasites, The Parasite Murders, They Came from Within, and Frissons.

Wow, I've never heard of this, good find! That "parasite" is disgusting. I love the images you chose for your review!

Crystal Math said...

Sounds disgusting! I wanna see it!

Wow, just this morning I received a Flavorwire email titled "Netflix Fright Flicks You Probably Haven't Seen" with this title being featured. I can't believe I've never seen or heard of this before!

Nice, we've got a little early Cronnenburg festival happening here.

Damn! That is quite a find. I am also intrigued!

So much so that I forgot to haiku!

That '70s poster alone is worth a couple stars.
