Merzbau Cronenberg is fucking awesome in this movie.
Lurchi Cronenberg is INCREDIBLE as an actor. He could have had a Polanski-like second career. But no, he was one of like five ridiculous sub-plots. (The lead actors had zero charisma.) The crazy police chief was great too.

Goethe and ernie I've not seen this film since I was 14 years old and more than a bit of a goth. It would probably be awful if I rewatched it.
