If You've Ever Wanted To Be Shot By a Lung-Gun with Teeth, Here's Your Chance: Live Inside a David Cronenberg Movie!

Posted By on Fri, Sep 6, 2013 at 10:00 AM

David Cronenberg is a sick man. The good sick. He may have moved away from his staple bio-horror films with his recent outings, but he still enjoys the terrors from within. According to this Indiewire article, he wants you to join in the fun.

"David Cronenberg's films are dark, twisted, and absolutely riveting, but would you want to live inside one? With an ambitious new project, TIFF and the Canadian Film Centre's Media Lab (CFC Media Lab) have co-produced Body/Mind/Change, an elaborate multi-media production with creative direction by Lance Weiler and starring David Cronenberg.

In Body/Mind/Change, Cronenberg partners with BMC Labs, a fictional biotech firm, to develop biotech enhancement implants inspired by the intellectual property found in his films, such as "Scanners," "Videodrome" and "eXistenZ." Cronenberg is the first participant in the project. Participants can sign up now at www.bodymindchange.ca where they can register to be one of the first to receive the next generation bio-tech recommendation engine, called Personal-On-Demand (POD)."

Sounds pretty fun! Who wouldn't want to slip a videotape in the vagina in their stomach? Or have a meat-gun extend from their arm? As Max Renn (James Woods) said in Videodrome, "Long Live the New Flesh."
