Plot – Spoilers:
James Ballard is in the movie business as well as an open and sexually jaded marriage with wife Catherine. An orgasm appears to have gotten elusive to both and they drift through their days titillating each other with tales of their extra marital indiscretions.

One night, James crashes his car killing the driver of an oncoming car whose co-passenger, Helen survives. James notices certain changes in his outlook post the accident and when Helen encourages him into sexual acts in cars, he begins to develop a paraphilia (symphorophilia) for accidents and car wrecks. This kink is fueled by a cult-like character Vaughan who has some strange ideas that push all known boundaries of sexual experimentation. Catherine becomes a part of their fetish as things begin to escalate.

Disgusting . I can’t believe that this movie is recommended for school children to learn about diversity! Don’t get me wrong, diversity and accepting all the faggots and freaks is super important and all, but this is too far I tell ya!

Hang on a minute..Nimrod ?is suggesting children are reading / watching Crash by the great JG Ballard in the classroom as a way of learning about diversity?WHY couldn’t I have gone to a school like that in the 70′ s ..sounds fucking great!!
I actually got a good thwacking with a wooden ruler across my knuckles when I was 10 yrs for reading Iain McKewen ‘ First Love last rights ‘ & ‘ Inbetween the Sheets’ by the teacher and was called a ‘ subversive’.. Well 43 yrs later she got that bit right?

Great, I really miss this movie, and I don’t know how many years passed since the last time that I watched it. I love this movie when I was an adolescent and I love it now. There isn’t just one form to love. But I strongly believe that paraphilias are ok if all participants agree with what could happen.

OJ, noticed you used an avatar of Nicolas Cage in 8MM. Respect to you, that is an awesome film as are the two you mentioned above. You have good taste in movies. Cheers!

I’ve got to agree with you on this. 8mm is my favorite Nicolas Cage movie… outside of Fast Times at Ridgemont High, which I believe is his first movie. He hasn’t even adopted “Cage” as his name yet because in the credits he appears as Nicolas Cappola. And what a scene – Sean Penn, Nick Cage, Eric Stolz and Judge Reinhold. If you’re not familiar with this movie, I recommend you watch it and see how many “first-time” names are in it. You’ll be surprised. And you know, 8mm most definitely qualifies as an Effed-Up Movie…. so I’m pretty sure… Read more »

David Cronenberg has made a number of films in the 70s and 80s, including ”Scanners”, ”Shivers” and ”Rabid” among many others which I have seen over the years. Medical horror films were his forte and he didnt shy away from controversial subjects with lots of gore and sex. My favorite subjects, btw. ”Crash” was ok but it didnt grab me like his earliest movies. I think he went a bit soft as he got older. Still worth a watch tho.
