If you are even contemplating buying this film then chances are you are a David Cronenberg fan. And fans of the master of body horror will not be dissappointed. You will see all the things that Cronenberg has gone on to develop in his later films.
The DVD has relatively good video and audio quality especially considering it is an old and relatively cheaply made film. Special features may not be as extensive as you would like but they are certainly interesting and better than the simple 'original theatrical trailer' that are usualy the only special feature on old 'cult' films released on DVD.
Fans of Cronenberg will love this but also filmmakers who want to see how you can make a horror film cheaply will get a lot of benefit from it.
The film is interesting and the performances and special effects have all aged well. I believe you will also like this if you are a fan of films such as Romero's 'The Crazies', 'slither' or classic horror films of the seventies.
