Directed by David Cronenberg, this film takes place inside a lavish high-rise apartment complex on a private island just outside Montreal. A parasite is let loose within the building that puts normal people into a raged psycho-sexual trance-like state. The residents start to spontaneously attack, rape, kill and/or pass the parasite onto one another. As the disease spreads, a doctor in the complex, Roger, notices that a lot of his patients have similar bizarre symptoms. He begins to investigate, and ultimately battle the horde. I like Cronenberg’s slow burning pace. It’s realistic, disturbing, and scary.
3.0 out of 4.0 stars.
