Hardcore pornography, sadomasochism, mind control and living televisions: the effect that technology has on our brains never been on such gross display as it is by the king of body horror, David Cronenberg, inĀ Videodrome. Centering around the discovery of an underground program called “Videodrome” by television executive Max Renn (James Woods) for his sex-oriented network, the film chronicles his continuous obsession of finding the program’s origin. Hallucinatory and full of gore, Cronenberg viscerally displays what happens when our addictive relationship to technology shifts from online and into reality.
