More shocking than «Crimes Of The Future» This blatant WTF horror will soon be in the cinema — cinema news


+++ Opinion +++

David Cronenberg , master of body horror like in » Videodrome » and » The Fly «, is presenting his new film » Crimes Of The Future » in the competition of the Cannes Film Festival 2022 — and promised in advance a high disgust factor , which would be evident at early screenings is said to have already led to panic attacks and fainting spells. The expectations for the film with Viggo Mortensen, Léa Seydoux and Kristen Stewart, which is about mutated bodies and live operations, were correspondingly high – would we see a real shocker here, a new scandalous film? Only half jokingly, I joked with my colleagues beforehand whether you should take a puke bag to the screening to be on the safe side.

After the first five minutes, spectators would leave the hall, Cronenberg predicted. However, that did not happen at the press screening of «Crimes Of The Future» in Cannes. The few people who left the room might just have to continue on to their next appointment – ​​as is so often the case in Cannes. Despite the many bodies that have been snipped open, the images never really come across as shocking – I had to avert my eyes far more frequently during the many vomit scenes in Ruben Östlund’s » Triangle Of Sadness «, which is also in the Cannes competition.

The FILMSTARTS review of «Crimes Of The Future»

The fact that I found «Crimes Of The Future» interesting, but it didn’t bother me or disgust me at all, is perhaps also due to the fact that I had only seen another eagerly awaited horror film the day before, which comes up with much crazier scenes — » Men ‘ by ‘ Ex Machina ‘ director Alex Garland , screened at the Directors’ Fortnight in Cannes.

Alex Garland’s «Men»: Surreal horror trip

You can see “Men” in cinemas from July 21, 2022. But be warned: The surreal horror with Jessie Buckley and Rory Kinnear is not only absurdly disturbing and peppered with many bizarre moments, but above all it comes up with an absolute what-the-fuck finale, whereas the idea is different interesting but oddly sterile body-horror scenes in Crimes Of The Future feel like a mouse-over-organ transplant episode.

In the feminism horror «Men» about Harper (Buckley), who wants to settle down in a holiday home after the death of her husband and is harassed and threatened in various ways in the small town by various men (all played by Kinnear) . Director Garland, on the other hand, is completely free at the end and turns the shock factor upside down.

The FILMSTARTS review of «Men»

Anyone who goes to the film unprepared and just expects (psycho) horror with mystery elements, as they are often hinted at during the film, for example when a mysterious, slightly greenish scruffy wood sprite appears out of nowhere and pursues Harper, should be in staring at the screen in utter disbelief during the final minutes of the film — and that’s something Crimes Of The Future feels just way too slick for (spoiler alert! Those wanting to be caught off guard by the grotesque finale in Men should look no further after the Stop reading the trailer and just buy a cinema ticket in summer):
