”Look at those assholes, ordinary fucking people. I hate ‘em.” Repo Man (1984) dir. Alex Cox
Night of the Comet (1984)
Guess who finally visited God’s Own Junkyard? The embodiment of my aesthetic.
This is exactly my aesthetic.
Okay, so the obvious point of reference is Giger (with a healthy dose of Cronenberg), but with the fleshy gun(?), I was pretty immediately reminded of The Many from System Shock 2. Which I mean, is also obviously inspired by Giger, but still.
Either way, you’ve got my attention.
Have u seen existenz? @mendelpalace
I haven’t, though judging from this:
I can believe that it’s a possible inspiration.
Though of course this isn’t Cronenberg’s first use of an organic weapon.
I still stand by the System Shock 2 comparison, as it did have two organic firearms made from human and alien tech, one of which is referred to as “semi-sentient” (though for the life of me I can’t find a decent picture of either one).
