I knew it would be weird, but yeah. A little too weird. Even Eraserhead seemed to make more sense of its plot than this movie. Surrealism is always tricky in movies. I did like the Rick Baker effects quite a bit, though! I get what it was trying to say, but I think Cronenberg is better palatable when he's not fully unhinged (The Fly, The Dead Zone) compared to this and eXistenZ, and his body horror fetish. I have a feeling I might like his newer stuff (A History of Violence, Eastern Promises) that's more story and less gooey flesh.
