David Cronenberg’s Crimes of the Future is Too Gruesome for the Cannes Audience

May 24, 2022

David Cronenberg is sticking to what he knows best with his latest film, Crimes of the Future. The director is known for including graphic scenes of body horror in his movies, and his new project is no exception. According to reports from IGN, audience members began leaving the screening, which debuted Monday at the Cannes Film Festival, five minutes after the movie started. This may come as no surprise for those who have seen Cronenberg’s previous films, like The Fly and Videodrome, but his movies aren’t for those with a weak stomach. The walkouts were expected from Cronenberg, telling Deadline he expected audience members to be ‘revulsed’ by the film.
