Logline

A work of art ahead of its time, featuring a masterful Jeremy Irons.

Birth, sex, and death are recurring themes in body horror. David Cronenberg superbly blends them into a tragic story of identical yet unequal twins (gynecologists even!) who are unable to break their obsessive psychosexual dependence on each other.

Matthew Barney’s short SCABACTION will be shown before the main feature DEAD RINGERS.
