A young woman develops a taste for human blood after undergoing experimental plastic surgery, and her victims turn into rabid, blood-thirsty zombies who proceed to infect others, which turns into a city-wide epidemic.
The residents of a suburban high-rise apartment building are being infected by a strain of parasites that turn them into mindless, sex-crazed fiends out to infect others by the slightest sexual contact.
Cronenberg produced, i believe 3 shorts for this series. The Italian machine probably the best. not a gore fest like contemporary fans might expect. All three shorts are psychological thrillers in nature. The Italian machine is about a bunch of biker dudes who track the life of an expensive bike and find that it is recently purchased by some yuppie art snobs. disgruntled by the idea that rich bourgeois are going to use the bike as a center piece rather than ride it, they decide to investigate... interesting po-mo (post modern) discussion of art ensues.
Also in the series (only available from Euro-films...as pirated off Asian television, i believe) is cronenbergs "carnival of souls"-esquire adventure, where a boarding house serves as a vehicle for purgatory. http://www.eurofilmsltd.com/catalog/d/cronenberg.html
