David Cronenberg's 'The Shrouds'

Canadian director and screenwriter, David Cronenberg, renowned for pioneering the “body horror” genre, is once more at the helm of a new horror flick. The leading role is played by Vincent Cassel, known from Irréversible. Merely weeks after the kick-off of production for The Shrouds in Toronto, this much-anticipated horror project from Cronenberg has finished filming.

As of now, no release date, trailer, or additional details about the upcoming horror film have been revealed, aside from a brief synopsis: “Karsh, a creative entrepreneur and mourning widower, constructs a device to communicate with the deceased within a funeral shroud.” Reportedly, Cassel will portray Karsh, who invents an apparatus that assists him in establishing a cemetery where visitors can observe their loved ones’ bodies decay. But when people begin to desecrate the graves, including his wife’s, he starts to question his creation.

Why ‘The Shrouds’ Could Be a Significant Entry in David Cronenberg’s Film Collection

While more details are kept under the hood, The Shrouds appears to be shaping up as another remarkable contribution to Cronenberg’s prolific catalogue, especially considering the past critical triumphs of the director. These include The Fly, Dead Ringers, A History of Violence, Scanners, The Dead Zone, and Videodrome, just to name a few from Cronenberg’s comprehensive oeuvre. Furthermore, Cronenberg and Cassel reunite after collaborating on A Dangerous Method more than ten years ago. Although it’s premature to make predictions, there’s anticipation that the upcoming film will enhance Cronenberg’s already laudable collection.

Guy Pearce and Diane Kruger Enlist for David Cronenberg’s ‘The Shrouds’

Cassel is well-acquainted with the genre of gore, having played Marcus in the 2002 suspense-drama Irréversible and appearing in the 2010 psychological thriller Black Swan alongside Natalie Portman. Joining Cassel, Guy Pearce is on board, with Diane Kruger stepping in for Léa Seydoux, who was originally slated to star in this Cronenberg-directed venture.
