- On the Syfy series Blood Drive, Cronenburgh was a town located in what was once Cleveland. It was established in the years following the great earthquake that created The Scar. Because of its proximity to the scar, a preacher took advantage of the noxious gases it produced and used them to create the semblance of a perfect idyllic town in the minds of others. The people who lived in Cronenburgh appeared normal, but were actually hideous mutants. Arthur Bailey and Grace d'Argento both became victims of the preacher's toxic influence. It was actually Julian Slink who opened everyone's eyes when she shut off all the valves pumping the hallucinogen into the town church.
