David Cronenberg's Dead Ringers (1988) shows Jeremy Irons as twin brothers who are gynecologists where they take full advantage that nobody can tell them apart, until their relationship deteriorates where one of them falls for an actress played by Genevieve Bujold.

With the announcement that it's going to come out on Blu-ray pretty soon from Shout Factory, let's share some memories on what you remember about Dead Ringers!

I don't remember much about Dead Ringers, other than I saw it at the theater, and it was a creepy movie. And Jeremy Irons is a good actor.

Jeremy Irons won the Oscar later for Reversal of Fortune, but I remember that, in a terrific touch, he thanked David Cronenberg in his acceptance speech. He may have won for that film, but Dead Ringers is really his best performance. He's amazing in a typically dark, creepy, and depressing Cronenberg film.
