Videodrome (1983) - 35th Anniversary Screening
Directed by David Cronenberg | Starring James Woods, Debbie Harry, Sonja Smits, Peter Dvorsk | Rating: 18 | 1983 | Canada | 87 mins
James Woods stars as Max Renn, a television executive looking for fresh new content for his TV channel when he stumbles on Videodrome, an illegal snuff show that induces sexual, violent impulses in its viewers. As Renn and his girlfriend Nicki (Debbie Harry) search for the source, Renn enters a mysterious world of sadomasochism and shocking physical transformations.
A mind-bending sci-fi-horror exploration of how technology can create a world neither fantasy nor reality, hailed by Andy Warhol as "the Clockwork Orange of the 80s” and featuring special effects from legendary make-up artist Rick Baker, Videodrome is as provocative and startling as it was 35 years ago.
“Videodrome feels more relevant today than ever. David Cronenberg’s erotically-charged social satire is a cautionary tale for the internet age” – Little White Lies
