Being a fan of David Cronenberg from a very early age (I even made my university thesis about him), I just had to take a trip to Amsterdam to attend the David Cronenberg exhibition in the The Eye.
What made this exhibition so special is that it focused on the props from all of his movies (both preliminary and actual ones): costumes such as the one that kept Rosanna Arquette together in Crash or Sarah Gadon's dress in A Dangerous Method, fake body parts, monsters, weapons, and much more.
Hereunder are some favorites...
...such as Carol Spier's mock advertisement for Ephemerol, a drug used to suppress telepathic powers in David Cronenberg's movie Scanners (1981).
T-shirts from Cronenberg's racing movie, Fast Company (1979). The film is virtually unknown, probably because it doesn't contain any of Cronenberg's recognizable horror or psychological elements.
Fake article in the Toronto Sun about the dwarf murders in my favorite David Cronenberg movie, The Brood (1979).
Videodrome (1983) was well-represented at the David Cronenberg exhibition in Amsterdam. Here you see a design for Debbie Harry' dress, the famous hand-coming-out-of-a-TV prop, an advertisement for Max Renn's TV station Civic-TV, and the belly in which the VHS tape disappears.
The Fly (1986) was my very first David Cronenberg film. Here's the fly's head, a preliminary maquette of the teleportation pod, and the actual pod as seen in the movie.
Until we meet again, Mugwump.
