Film: Crash (Cronenberg version, 1996)

Plot: After getting into a serious car accident, a TV director discovers an underground sub-culture of scarred car crash fetish victims and tries to use that to rejuvenate his sex life with his wife.

What a freaky film. Made in 1996 this is def worth getting out on DVD, it would spoil it if I reviewed it too much other than to say this: sex & car crashes & sometimes both at the same time. Who'd ever have thought that car crashes & resulting wounds & scars could be a turn-on for some people? Freaky shit. A bit like Cronenberg trying to be David Lynch and almost making it, actually would've probably been better if Lynch made it but its still worth a rental. Worth seeing for Rosanna Arquette hobble around in her kinky black leg caliper thingies (see image above).

Stormi gives it ***1/2 stars for originality & superb weirdness. PS... I actually tried to read the book by Ballard, but couldn't actually stomach the detailed descriptions of car crashes etc.
