David Cronenberg's Crimes Of The Future Teaser Will Give You Nightmares

The bonafide boss of body horror, David Cronenberg, has blown our minds (and those of his cast, if you remember "Scanners") with many impressively out-there plots over the years, from "Videodrome" to "The Fly." Now, he's returned to the lab once again for his upcoming movie, "Crimes of the Future," and with it comes a star-studded cast getting into what can only be described as some pretty freaky stuff. Standard Cronenberg then?

Currently, there are no plot details on what the director's new sci-fi film is about, but what can be confirmed is that it will not be a remake of Cronenberg's 1970 film of the same name. Instead, Viggo Mortensen, Léa Seydoux, Kristen Stewart, and Scott Speedman are telling an all-new story that guarantees a wince-inducing experience, if the startlingly disturbing images in the new teaser are anything to go by. 

Of course, you don't need us to tell you. Check out the trailer for yourself, right below, and see if you can determine what on earth is happening.

Cronenberg's new movie looks gorgeously grotesque

While the new trailer makes a point to clarify that it stems from "the mind of David Cronenberg," it takes only a few frames to recognize his uniquely dark body horror sensibilities. Besides Viggo Mortensen being poked and prodded in some kind of capsule, we also get a brief glimpse of a poor soul with ears on their forehead having their mouth stitched shut. Add that alongside Kristen Stewart getting invasive on somebody else's torso ... and a kid eating what we can only assume is a bathroom bin as if it is a chocolate Easter egg. 

What's it about? Honestly, right now, your guess is as good as ours.

Set to debut at Cannes Film Festival this year, you can bet that Cronenberg will turn and potentially tear heads open with his latest endeavor. Twitter reactions are going to be wild, but for now, all we can do is wait and see the film itself when it arrives in theatres in June.
