VIDEODROME
1983, Universal, 87 min, Canada, Dir: David Cronenberg

One of director David Cronenberg’s most disturbing, subversive thrillers. While searching for programs to boost ratings on his small cable station, jaded Max Renn (James Woods) becomes hooked on an underground TV show, “Videodrome,” that may be a genuine snuff video. But tracking down its source proves dangerous as lifelike hallucinations kick in, skewing Max’s very concept of reality, and his new girlfriend, talk-show host Nikki Brand (Blondie's Deborah Harry), goes missing. "Long live the new flesh!"
