Secret Weapons. "David Cronenberg's seldom seen 1972 made-for-TV movie, 'Secret Weapons'. It is six years into a future American civil war. A man has created a drug that enhances fighting skills. But will he give it to the theocratic government, or the rebels?" [Via]

LONG LIVE THE NEW FLESH!

That was like watching a prequel to an entire career of a film maker.Not very good but very telling of what is to come.

"But will he give it to the theocratic government, or the rebels?"

Considering that one of the choices is "theocratic government," you can guess where this is going.

I still want Shivers to get a better dvd or bluray release. Heck, it's actually one movie i think if he remade it would be even better. It's still good, but he's learned better skills since then.

Good idea. It's creepy enough, and the plot isn't all that shopworn. This version is boring, except for the artificial tension engendered by the music.
