All right so it's time to check out a wild Cronenberg classic. I actually know very little about this one besides a handful of things that I only barely remember. I didn't even know Debbie Harry was in this! I have seen a few Cronenberg movies which were definitely unique. Now I can add this to that slowly growing list. Let's see why this is considered so memorable and defining.

Honestly, it has been a while since I have seen this flick and I should definitely re-watch it at some point. Anyway, it is definitely a typical Cronenberg feature and I thought it was pretty good. At the time, Cronenberg was still transitioning to some more commercial features easier to digest for the mainstream audience but there were still many of his famous trademarks that you could find in hi... read more

David Cronenberg's films are technically very well made and while his films are very disturbing a good deal of his films also have either a dark or subtle wit, poignant emotion or even both. He is for me one of the most interesting and unlike any other out there directors, despite being known for body horror and originating it his films are much more than that. All these are the reasons for my adm... read more

" As the president of a trashy TV channel, Max Renn is desperate for new programming to attract viewers. When he happens upon “Videodrome,” a TV show dedicated to gratuitous torture and punishment, Max sees a potential hit and broadcasts the show on his channel. However, after his girlfriend auditions for the show and never returns, Max investigates the truth behind Videodrome and discovers that the graphic violence may not be as fake as he thought.

Pros and Cons of Films: Vol. 1 (121 movies items)

"Pros: James Woods (in spite of himself). The make up, and body horror of the film. It’s a very unnerving movie. The grimy feeling, of Videodrome. Toronto, Ontario, Canada as it’s back drop. It’s one of David Cronenberg’s best films. Con: For some it would be “a litmus test film”, plus the whole queasy exploitive nature of Videodrome."

"16.1. Blu-ray Uusintakatselu. Videodrome on pysynyt ajankohtaisena ja ajattomana, teemoiltaan mukautuen muuttuvaan maailmaan. Se kestää myös useita katseluita menettämättä tehostaan yhtään. Loppu on aina vaan äärimmäisen vahva ja kuin summauksena koko elokuvasta puhuttelee miltei fyysisesti. Tai jotain. Imee sisäänsä täysin ja tämä on vieläkin veikeää sisältö ja teemat huomioiden. Kaiken päälle Rick Bakerin groteskit käytännön tehosteet, niin ei sinänsä ole ihme, e"

"FORMAT: 35mm CONDITION: ★★★½ NOTES: Printed by ICA Projects, co-presented by the Sci-Fi Channel. The picture behind all the scratches looks crystal clear until the last two reels from when Max confronts Harlan at his studio, which were either projected or printed slightly out of focus. During Max’s following hallucination, a thick yellow line tracks down one third of the print until the transformation is complete. DATE: September 18th 2022 CINEMA: ICA LOCATION: The Mall"

He is for me one of the most interesting and unlike any other out there directors, despite being known for body horror and originating it his films are much more than that. All these are the reasons for my admiration and appreciation for him.

Will be honest in saying that 'Videodrome' is not quite one of my favourites of his, do much prefer the likes of 'Dead Ringers' and 'The Fly' and find that they are more accessible as films. It is still a very intriguing film that hits hard on the disturbance factor. Something of a transition film, with all the distinctive Cronenberg touches and themes b” read more
