Awesome vintage style artwork! I thought this was Rabid Dogs though. But it's Cronenberg, so I'll blind buy this.

If you blind buy this one, please have in mind that its from 1977. I like it, but I know that some have issues with "older" films! :)

I wasn't a huge fan of this film or Shivers, both films had a lot of problems IMO.
