Another movie release anniversary! Thirty years ago today saw the release of director David Cronenberg’s twisted film “Dead Ringers” starring Jeremy Irons at his creepy best.

The synopsis?

Elliot and Beverly Mantle (both played by Irons) are identical twins and gynecologists who jointly operate a highly successful clinical practice in Toronto that specializes in the treatment of female fertility problems. Elliot, the more confident and cynical of the two, seduces women who come to the Mantle Clinic. When he tires of them, the women are passed on to the shy and passive Beverly, while the women remain unaware of the substitution.

The film follows the brothers as they sexually manipulate an actress who comes to them for help and then who attempts to uncover abuses at the clinic after she discovers how she has been used.

Talk about an anti- #MeToo movement movie. Show this at a feminist meeting and you’ll have riots in the streets.
