In writer/director David Cronenberg’s visionary brain-scorcher, reality is television and television is reality. Prophetic cathode ray tube spirituality perfectly melds with the filmmaker’s trademark obsessions, turning a low budget head trip into one of the decade’s most audaciously original sci-fi tales. Packed with provocative ideas and hyper-stimulated video hallucinations, spectacular Rick Baker effects and a hypnotic Howard Shore score, plus a cast (James Woods, Blondie’s Debbie Harry) willing to push the limits, Videodrome is a cult classic that’s impossible to forget.
