The directors cut is actually a pretty good flick that is certainly much more than just an excuse for makeup. The subtext of the film is really about homosexuality. Once you key into this you see Barkers intentions are pretty clear and while it’s no masterpiece of cinema if you’re a fan of makeup and horror as a vehicle for bigger ideas this is a solid watch.
I thought I'd enjoy it more but it was still pretty good. Cool monster effects and Cronenberg was a fun villain.
This movie is by no means perfect, it's riddled with flaws but it tries so hard I'll happily overlook them. Especially as it has such visual flair.
