Frank Carveth is worried that his ex-wife Nola is being driven crazier by Psychoplasmics, a form of therapy invented by pop psychologist Dr Hal Raglan in which patients’ neuroses manifest physically on their bodies. Child-sized, deformed creatures murder Nola’s parents, and Frank traces them back to Raglan’s institute.
Genuinely disturbing horror but with Cronenberg producing a slightly deeper edge in his portrait of a troubled family.
