THEY CAME FROM WITHIN / Canadian Film Development Corporation - 1975

Welcome to Creepy Halloween Dungeon Countdown 2013 with Tabonga, here at The Dungeon!.. We gots David Cronenberg's extra wild 'n' weird movie about bloody parasites that infiltrate a new housing complex in Canada, to devastating results! Alternate title is SHIVERS.

Eegah!! sent over an informative soundclip from this flick, sooooo, you can push the big red 'GO' button there next to the caged parasite, NOW, Ralphie The Tarantula! Here's our audio offering for... THEY CAME FROM WITHIN!

My print is from a VHS transfer, so, sorry about that...

Here's the new apartment complex for the modern apartmentite, complete with free mutant parasites even, what a deal! You can hear all the positive selling points for living there in the soundclip.

Paul (no ears) Hampton and Joe Silver play concerned scientists trying to deal with some odd occurances that are taking place in the apartment where Paul lives.

This poor lady was just trying to do her laundry when one of the slimy things jumps onto her face from inside the washer!

Did I mention sultry Barbara Steele is in this flick, in all her glory?

And, she gets her parasite in the bath tub!

Paul's girlfriend gets a visit from an infected neighbor... Anyone infected by the critters can become a total sex fiend bent on passing a parasite to another person!

One parasite crawled up this lady's cane and onto her arm! They are very aggressive.

Great shot of Paul as he races down one of the long hallways.

Just in an elevator ride to the ground floor, one infected dude is able to infect a mom and her young daughter! Then, the daughter proceeds to infect the doorman!.. That's Cronenberg for you.

Joe gets a face full of parasite and tries to remove it with pliers!

Are you ready for the freaks when they come to your door?!..

Paul is eventually cornered in the pool and his ex-girlfriend infects him!

Then, hundreds of infected maniacs jump in their cars to spread the good news to the surrounding area!.. Happy Halloween Countdown 2013, Everbloody!!

Thanks for alerting me to the fact that I thought I had this film somewhere in my collection, but cannot find it on a list... Of course, maybe I didn't list it !

Good luck, Ex, let us know when you do or don't find it!

This is one of my faves. One of those films that really makes you squirm in your seat.

I want to bugger Lynn Lowry (as the bird was in 1965 when the bird was 18, not as the bird is now obviously).

Barbara Steele is still a looker!

Horror film making people ought to make hundreds to 14 billion of new body bulging special makeup effects parasite horror movies. They should come up a few ideas about parasites inpregnates inside human necks or throats, bellies, chests, arms, face, and back, and they would have to do over an hundred to thousands of makeup body inflation Gelatin Bladders Effects.
