Videodrome Movie Review 1983

Information and Film Reviews for Videodrome the Movie

Staff rating


Visitor rating
4.0 from 0 reviews

Woods is a cable TV programmer with a secret yen for sex and violence, which he satisfies by watching a pirated TV show. "Videodrome" appears to show actual torture and murder, and also seems to control the thoughts of its viewers--turning them into human VCRs. Cronenberg's usual sick fantasies are definitely love 'em or leave 'em. Special effects by Rick Baker.
