Buckle up, it’s going to be a bumpy ride – as Arrow Video present David Cronenberg’s stunning and hypnotic tour de force in a superb 4k restoration, at selected cinemas from 6th November.

Technology and sexuality meet in a head-on collision in Crash – director David Cronenberg’s controversial adaptation of writer J.G. Ballard’s hugely transgressive 1973 novel, starring James Spader and Holly Hunter. Awarded the Special Jury Prize at the 1996 Cannes Film Festival for originality, daring and audacity, Crash remains an incredibly subversive and confrontational piece of cinema – Cronenberg himself describes it as “a dangerous film”, and The Daily Mail called for it to be banned. Now viewers can revisit this metal-mangling masterwork on the big screen and judge for themselves.

James Ballard is an advertising executive whose deviant sexual desires are awakened by a near fatal automobile accident with Dr Helen Remington. Soon the pair, alongside Ballard’s wife Catherine, are drawn into an underground world of car crash fetishism presided over by renegade scientist Vaughan. Danger, sex and death become entwined as eroticism and technology join together in a disturbing, deadly union.
