director:
David Cronenberg
cast:
James Woods, Sonia Smits

Searching for a new television sensation, TV exec Max Renn discovers an underground program that broadcasts scenes of extreme violence and murder. Equally disgusted and intrigued by what he sees, Renn sets out to learn more about the mysterious TV station behind it all. However, the deeper he goes, the more he loses touch with reality, in a series of disorienting - and visually stunning - hallucinations that also explore man’s place in the video age. “Director David Cronenberg's most visionary and audacious film up to the time of its making, Videodrome is a fascinating rumination on humanity, technology, entertainment, sex, and politics.” (TV Guide)
