"Videodrome" is a radical look at the deep-web, YouTube, screen addiction and the increasingly violent state of movies at a time when such subjects weren't up for cultural debate.

It's hard to overstate how premonitory David Cronenberg's masterpiece turned out to be.

Sean Fennessey, The Ringer

Videodrome shows us a world of our making should we continue a dangerous relationship with media, its various mediums, the images it puts into our brains.

C.H. Newell, Father Son Holy Gore

As the president of a trashy TV channel, Max Renn (James Woods) 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 (Deborah Harry) 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.
