Another purchase for my Criterion Collection library. Probably my third viewing - still absurdly hilarious. Since this watch was on the evening of the midterm election day in Texas, it was also a more ironic experience than before.
I get that Shivers is a satire but that still doesn't excuse the bad filmmaking. If this film didn't have the name "Cronenberg" attached to it, it would be seen today as just another crap movie from the 70s.
