These David Cronenberg Valentines transform body horror into bloody romance


It’s Valentine’s Day, which means you are obligated to do something special-ish because greeting card companies own you. If you are single, this means your parents will guilt you into having children because the biological imperative to see their genetic material carry forward owns them. That’s a lot of pressure. Even worse, you might not know what to get the one you love.

While Flixist’s Die Hard Valentines are a possibility, you can also go with these David Cronenberg Valentines. Yes, nothing says “I love you” like a bit of body horror and gooey science fiction from the clinical mind of a horror maestro. Enjoy a tender evening together, cherishing your affection with images from The Fly, Videodrome, ScannersThe Brood, Rabid, Dead Ringers, and Naked Lunch.

We’ve got a few designs in the gallery. For all of the Valentines and to send your sweetheart something wonderful, visit
