Cronenberg's distinct brand of horror - often caused by mutation or medical conditions - has given him the cult title of 'Horror Meister'. The Canadian director has been screenwriting and directing since the 1960s, responsible for films, such as "Shivers", "Crash" (nominated for the Palme d'or at Cannes), "The Fly" (one of very few cinema remakes widely regarded as superior to the original), "eXistenZ" (which won a Silver Berlin Bear award) and "Dead Ringers". He also directed "The Dead Zone", an adaptation of Stephen King's bestseller, which was nominated for a Saturn Award. Using the successful format of previous books in the "Virgin Film" series, this guide includes categories, such as Plot Summary, Casting, Cut Scenes, Recurring Actors, Music and other categories. Including an interview with David Cronenberg himself, this is the ultimate guide to his films, providing new insight into the films that have crowned him the King of Horror.
