The first film from cult favorite Cronenberg, Canada's top horror director (which admittedly isn't saying all that much), has many of the themes that would later pop up in his work. These include repressed sexuality and controlled telepathy. Here he has a group of youngsters involved in a

scientific experiment for the Canadian Academy of Erotic Inquiry, in which an operation is performed that removes the children's ability to speak and increases their power of telepathic communication. Short, and therefore confused, STEREO does display some interesting concepts not usually found in

the genre. Cronenberg was only 26 when he shot STEREO with a budget of only $3,500 and without the benefit of synchronized sound. He has since gone on to Hollywood to make THE DEAD ZONE (1983), a film with a bigger budget but not much to show for it, and THE FLY (1986), which received broad-based

acclaim. Rereleased in 1984.
