Stereo (1969) early David Cronenberg

From David Cronenberg, this skillfully created short from 1969 involves a group of subjects at "the Institute" who receive experimental brain surgery in order to create heightened powers of telepathy or extra sensory perception, are encouraged to also include sexual exploration and the results. Similar themes of medically induced negative side effects would continue and are found in many of his later works such as Shivers, Rabid, The Brood or Scanners.
