Summary: Sci-fi horror filmmaker David Cronenberg’s diabolical invader is a television show that seduces and controls its viewers. Featuring rock star Deborah Harry (in her first major film) as a kinky hostess, James Woods as a cable programmer looking for the ultimate in viewing thrills, and special make-up effects by Oscar-winner Rick Baker, Videodrome is a pulsating science fiction nightmare about a world where video can control and alter human life.

"Its dense mysteries remain more tantalizing than distancing: No other director integrates the creepy with the cerebral quite like Cronenberg. "
- Scott Tobias, AV Club
"Videodrome exalts technology while excoriating tech­nocracy, painting a dystopian picture. It is at once a baffling and entirely credible depiction: Cronenberg expresses what is usually repressed and makes visible those networks of power not seen by the naked eye."
- Carrie Rickey, Criterion Collection
"VIDEODROME very well may be the most incomprehensible mainstream film ever made [...] Nevertheless, this is a remarkable film that will continue to be debated and analyzed for decades to come. "
- TV Guide
"Film is dotted with video jargon and ideology which proves more fascinating than distancing. And Cronenberg amplifies the freaky situation with a series of stunning visual effects."
- Variety Staff, Variety
