Director: David Paul Cronenberg
When Max Renn goes looking for edgy new shows for his sleazy cable TV station, he stumbles across the pirate broadcast of a hyperviolent torture show called ‘Videodrome’. As he struggles to unearth the origins of the program, he embarks on a hallucinatory journey into a shadow world of right-wing conspiracies, sadomasochistic sex games, and bodily transformation.
‘Videodrome’ is one of writer/director David Cronenberg’s most original and provocative works, fusing social commentary with shocking elements of sex and violence. ‘Videodrome’ has come to be regarded as one of the most influential and mind-bending science fiction films of the 1980s.
