It is the living legend David Cronenberg's 75th birthday today - he's so nice he's got an entire sub-genre slash state-of-mind named after him. It's been four long years since his last movie Maps to the Stars came out - he's talked about retiring from directing and released a book in the meantime but we sure do hope he makes more. The world needs him. The world needs his freaks! His beautiful freaks! And so in honor of all he's given us here is a list of the first few Cronenbergian Freaks that popped into my head...
6 of My Favorite Cronenbergian Freaks
Seth Brundle in The Fly
Rose in Rabid
Yves Cloquet in Naked Lunch
