David Cronenberg returns to sci-fi body horror in gross-out teaser for Crimes of the Future

The Body Horror King is back. A teaser trailer for Crimes of the Future, possibly David Cronenberg’s first full-scale entry into body horror since 1999’s Existenz, has been released ahead of its premiere at the 2022 Cannes Film Festival.

The film takes place in the ‘not too distant’ future, where the human species has adapted to a ‘synthetic’ environment and evolved beyond its natural state into a metamorphosis that changes its genetic makeup. A famous performance artist named Saul Tenser (Viggo Mortensen) publicly exhibits the transformation of his organs into avant-garde performances with his partner Caprice (Léa Seydoux). Timlin (Kristen Stewart), a researcher for the National Organ Registry, obsessively follows his movements, allowing him to uncover a mysterious group with seemingly sinister intentions. Their duties? Use Saul’s notoriety to shine a light on the next phase of human evolution. (The movie shares the same name as another 1970 Cronenberg movie, but it’s not a remake.)

The short teaser, visible above, precipitates a montage of sickening clips—Stewart is seen holding a device to his eye and making satisfying groans as he literally punches holes in another. Yeah, Cronenberg didn’t come to play.

Cronenberg is known for mixing pleasure with pain (Crash, Videodrome) and for stretching the limits of the human body as much as possible (The Fly, Scanners). The new movie seems like a promising return to what the director does best: it gives us nightmares about our own flesh.

Future Crimes will premiere at the 2022 Cannes Film Festival, where it will compete for the Palme d’Or. Check out our list of upcoming movies in 2022 to learn more.

The king of body horror is back. A teaser trailer for Crimes of the Future, arguably David Cronenberg’s first full-out foray into body horror since 1999’s Existenz, has just been released ahead of its 2022 Cannes Film Festival debut. 
The film takes place in a ‘not-so-distant- future where the human species has adapted to a ‘synthetic’ environment and have evolved beyond their natural state and into metamorphosis which ultimately alters their genetic makeup. A celebrity performance artist named Saul Tenser (Viggo Mortensen), along with his partner Caprice (Léa Seydoux), publicly showcase the metamorphosis of their organs in avant-garde performances. Timlin (Kristen Stewart), an investigator from the National Organ Registry, obsessively tracks their movements, which allows her to uncover a mysterious group with seemingly sinister intentions. Their mission? To use Saul’s notoriety to shed light on the next phase of human evolution. (The movie shares the same name as another 1970 Cronenberg film, but is not a remake.)
The quick teaser, which can be viewed above, speeds through a montage of stomach-churning clips – with Stewart holding a device to her eye and making satisfied moans while poking literal holes in another person. Yeah, Cronenberg didn’t come to play.
