Dir. David Cronenberg. 1977. 91 mins. Restored DCP. With Marilyn Chambers, Frank Moore, Joe Silver, Howard Ryshpan. Cronenberg enhances this film’s sexual themes by casting porn queen Marilyn Chambers as a modern-day vampire who spreads a plague through Montreal. Centering on a young woman whose plastic surgery infects her with a taste for blood, this film is both a commentary on the dangers of biotechnology and a political allegory about the dangers of repression.
