What puts it head-and-shoulders above most of its no-budget kin is that the movie is as much social satire as horror movie - the parasites infecting the tenants of the isolated luxury Starliner Apartments come not to kill their hosts, but to turn them into amoral sex junkies! This pornographic-sounding premise is treated dramatically and philosophically rather than salaciously, to intriguing effect. Fans of David Cronenberg's later work will recognize many of his recurring themes in nascent form here, and those in the mood for a more intelligent horror flick than usual while still delivering the goods will not be disappointed.
