From the Orpheum Theatre's website, but with slightly better HTML:

Summer Camp presents: David Cronenberg's SHIVERS (1975)

Friday June 30th at Midnight
Saturday July 1st at 9pm
in the Orpheum Stagedoor
$5

SHIVERS is the first feature film by director David Cronenberg (SCANNERS, VIDEODROME) and is arguably the first example of the genre known as body horror (ALIEN, THE HIDDEN, THE BROOD, etc).

The premise follows a mysterious parasite, which can enter a person's body and unleash their bizzare sexual desires. SHIVERS brings to mind movies like NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD and INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS and mixes them with a distinctly sleazy 1970s feel. The film stars cult actresses Lynn Lowry (I DRINK YOUR BLOOD) and Barbara Steele (CAGED HEAT, BLACK SUNDAY)

that was on Saturday night Frights a couple years ago. It's like the worm STD that affects some island in Canada. Kinda bizarr. I'm sure that would be interesting to see that on big screen, too bad I just got back from madison, hmm, still a little tempting.

Man, that was a creepy movie. I don't think I could sit through it again.

Really? I've never seen Shivers, but that doesn't surprise me. I know the work of David Cronenberg. It's really... uh, for lack of a better word, biological. He's fascinated by decay and contamination. Ever see the Jeff Goldblum version of The Fly? That's one of his, and it's about as tame as his early work gets. More recently he's moved away from that kind of horror.

My god. There's a cult horror movie that I've seen and you haven't? I will do my best to savor this fact for the remaining six hours that it's true.

You have great taste in schlock horror, so I'm gonna take that as an endorsement.
