- David Cronenberg has been called a contemporary Hitchcock who blends horror, fantasy, and outrageous images into the celebrated films — films like Rabid, The Brood, Scanners, Videodrome, The Dead Zone, The Fly, Dead Ringers, Naked Lunch, and, most recently, M. Butterfly — that have made him a cult figure among movies buffs. Some people think his movies are repulsive and grotesque. Others call him a genius who has created some of the screen’s most provocative images. Everyone agrees that he is different. Very different. Peter Morris’s biography is the first to give us all the details about this remarkable filmmaker’s life.
Peter Morris teaches film at York University.
