Cronenberg (1978-1979)

1978 - Fast Company – A perfectly sturdy exploitation/drive-in movie that captures the world of drag racing in great detail. I'll be damned if I can detect any of Cronenberg's personality in this movie... other than his love of cars, of course. A continuation of "The Italian Machine," I think.

1979 - The Brood – Psychoplasmics: expunging mental rage through your own flesh. There's only one director who would ever create such a film. As well, it's not easy to make children seem scary, but Cronenberg more than handles the challenge.
