Cool Horror Videos: David Cronenberg's novel Consumed gets a NSFW trailer

04.17.2014by: Eric Walkuski

I'm ashamed to admit I had no idea David Cronenberg was publishing a novel later this year. Titled CONSUMED, it's described as the story of two journalists whose entanglement in a French philosopher's death becomes a surreal journey into global conspiracy. But, as this is Cronenberg after all, there is much more going on... CONSUMED deals with, among other things, cannibalism, varieties of sex, organ trafficking and killer STDs. Typical day in Cronenbergland!

Below you'll find a "trailer" - for lack of a better word - for CONSUMED. It may be a dramatization of one of the book's scenes, or maybe it's just a peek into the madness of the overall tale. Whatever the case, it involves a woman talking to a surgeon about removing her breast… in order to allow the insects within her body to escape. Yikes!

Be careful: NSFW nudity coming up!

Here's the full synopsis for CONSUMED, which Simon & Schuster will release in September:

The exhilarating debut novel by iconic filmmaker David Cronenberg: the story of two journalists whose entanglement in a French philosopher's death becomes a surreal journey into global conspiracy. Stylish and camera-obsessed, Naomi and Nathan thrive on the yellow journalism of the social-media age. They are lovers and competitors—nomadic freelancers in pursuit of sensation and depravity, encountering each other only in airport hotels and browser windows.

Naomi finds herself drawn to the headlines surrounding Célestine and Aristide Arosteguy, Marxist philosophers and sexual libertines. Célestine has been found dead and mutilated in her Paris apartment. Aristide has disappeared. Police suspect him of killing her and consuming parts of her body. With the help of an eccentric graduate student named Hervé Blomqvist, Naomi sets off in pursuit of Aristide. As she delves deeper into Célestine and Aristide's lives, disturbing details emerge about their sex life—which included trysts with Hervé and others. Can Naomi trust Hervé to help her?

Nathan, meanwhile, is in Budapest photographing the controversial work of an unlicensed surgeon named Zoltán Molnár, once sought by Interpol for organ trafficking. After sleeping with one of Molnár's patients, Nathan contracts a rare STD called Roiphe's. Nathan then travels to Toronto, determined to meet the man who discovered the syndrome. Dr. Barry Roiphe, Nathan learns, now studies his own adult daughter, whose bizarre behavior masks a devastating secret.

These parallel narratives become entwined in a gripping, dreamlike plot that involves geopolitics, 3-D printing, North Korea, the Cannes Film Festival, cancer, and, in an incredible number of varieties, sex. Consumed is an exuberant, provocative debut novel from one of the world's leading film directors.
