Martin Scorsese says this is the best 3D feature film ever made.
Typical Jodorowsky but perhaps not his masterpiece.
Cronenberg’s first big feature, which still is compelling.
Great fun in 3D for both kids and their parents, with lots of retro bits aping the Universal horror classics of the 1930s.
Fans of H.P. Lovecraft will love this; others may be merely bemused.
Much higher artistic quality than a B-grade horror flick.
