Canadian filmmaker David Cronenberg is considered an originator of body horror movies, but despite dedicating most of his life to cinema he is willing to let it go.

The “Scanners” and “Naked Lunch” director has spent more than five decades crafting films, and the evolution of the art is not something he necessarily cares to be part of.

“If movies disappeared overnight, I wouldn’t care. The cinema is not my life,” Cronenberg said at the Neuchatel International Fantastic Film festival.
