Such profound statements on modern humanity and ever-changing society are prominent in the provocative Crash (1996) and in the virtual reality essay of Existenz (1999), both of which well fared at the Cannes and Berlin Film Festivals.


Was set to direct Total Recall (1990). He even wrote a few drafts of the script before Paul Verhoeven took over.


With Dead Ringers (1988) and Naked Lunch (1991), the Canadian director, no more a mere genre movie-maker but a fully realized auteur, got the acclaim of international critics.

His crew referred to the final Brundlefly monster seen in the climax of The Fly (1986) as the Space Bug.


Cronenberg become a sort of a mass media guru with Videodrome (1983), a shocking investigation of the hazards of reality-morphing television and a prophetic critique of contemporary aesthetics.

The issues of tech-induced mutation of the human body and topics of the prominent dichotomy between body and mind were back again in DEAD ZONE (1983) and The Fly (1986), both bright examples of a personal film-making identity, even if both films are based on mass-entertainment materials: the first being a rendition of a Stephen King best-seller, the latter a remake of a famous American horror movie.


Cronenberg gained popularity with the head-exploding, telepathy-based Scanners (1981) after the release of the much underrated, controversial, and autobiographical The Brood (1979).


Has often referred to The Brood (1979) as his own twisted version of Kramer vs. Kramer (1979).


He reached the cult status of horror-meister with the gore-filled, modern-vampire variations of Shivers (1975) and Rabid (1977), following an experimental apprenticeship in independent film-making and in Canadian television programs.


He spent about a year in 1971 in the small medieval village Tourrettes-sur-Loup, France, possibly in the commune, trying to become a novelist.


Cites Winter Kept Us Warm (1965) as his inspiration for becoming a filmmaker. It was screened at the University of Toronto when he was a student.


David Cronenberg, also known as the King of Venereal Horror or the Baron of Blood, was born in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, in 1943. His father, Milton Cronenberg, was a journalist and editor, and his mother, Esther (Sumberg), was a piano player.
