In CRASH, Cronenberg explores the erotic connection between sex, car crashes and James Spader. A 35mm presention.

Film producer James Ballard (James Spader) has a pretty plush life, but even with his wealth and beautiful wife, things are starting to feel a little mundane. Late one night, Ballard’s life changes in a flash, a terrible, twisted car wreck that only he and another passenger (Holly Hunter) survive. The two strangers meet in recovery, and they obsess over one-another’s gruesome scars and the white hot memory of hard impact, twisted metal and supple flesh. They aren’t alone, either. As the two start an affair, they fall in with a cult of other crash survivors who are hellbent on recapturing the intense, sexual fusion of flesh with steel.

Part of Nitehawk Cinema’s June CRONENBERG midnite series.
