Another great Cronenberg... body horror + media consumption= one of his best
April 12, 2014
I'm really not sure what to make of this film. A lot of it feels like a product of the times with a message and gratuity that is now lost or altogether underwhelming. It's weird and cynical, but does that make it good? Well, it certainly has some interesting effects that have stood the test of time in an interesting way, but its lack of a cohesive narrative (and lack of any real attempts to create one) make it a very unapproachable film. It tried to do things I haven't seen before, and held some moderate success, but not enough that I can really recommend it. If you want to know what David Cronenberg's all about, this might be a good place to start.

Intriguing concept - Woods is a video pirate who encounters a hidden snuff film broadcast, which turns out to have subliminal signals that mess with the mind - is an ominous warning of the dangers of video at a time video distribution was gaining popularity, and has some interesting prescient touches for modern viewers. However, the film is somewhat confusing (purposefully so), and is ultimately let down by dull pacing anyway (made worse by Howard Shore's turgid score). Very icky special effects are a highlight for fans of body horror, at which director Cronenberg excels.

Baffling, pretentious, body shock horror sci-fi from David Cronenberg.
October 14, 2010
It may be a product of its time, but it was also ahead of its time in many ways. It's a hell of an experience, that's for sure.
March 15, 2014
A Cronenberg film with unconspicuous messages that were delivered through symbolism. It is complicated and twisted.
March 11, 2014
The film consists very sincere and futuristic approach along with special Cronenberg touch of body horror when it seems similar with sodomizing, but as far the subject goes,it loses its control on its turf and becomes just another horror film badly trying to prove itself. And, the unexpected ending with a black fade out is very lame to conclude it just haphazardly.

Videodrome - Canadian sci-fi horror film - written and directed by David Cronenberg. Starring James Woods. Set in Toronto the executive of television station is fascinated by illegal broadcasting of the show - airing torturous, bondage and sexually perverse sexual soft-pornography. After seeing a pirated VHS copy o show called 'Videodrome' which instills brain-tumor in his head - leaving him to suffer from frequent bizarre hallucination.

I had read about this film long long ago but never put efforts to watching this and I think I did nice. Videodrome is pure time-waster, brainless piece of garbage - as a matter of fact it becomes itself "Videodrome" the architect of which is David Cronenberg.

Some film critic called it 80s 'A Clockwork Orange' I feel pity for such ridiculous critics.
February 10, 2014
A gorey and metaphysical ride.
April 29, 2009
Un po' contorto, ma ci sono alcune idee sottobraccio ben comprensibili (anche se un po' superato) come la televisione che controlla le masse. Di estremamente interessante c'Ŕ il discorso realtÓ/allucinazione e la trasformazione del corpo umano che sono elementi che torneranno spesso nei film di Cronenberg.

Please Please Please if I could find it I would watch
January 13, 2014
While its ideas aren't that far removed from our reality, much of the film is oddly paced and the narrative goes through some sequences without a clear purpose. The acting in the film isn't that good, but the direction has some interesting visual ideas, sadly the story of the film is mismanaged and the noteworthy ideas get watered down by the shock tactics.
January 11, 2014
A man running an unauthorised cable channel in Toronto starts having violent hallucinations after watching a sadomasochist video. Though the plot becomes convulted and somewhat aimless and the contextualisation a little outdated, Cronenberg's reflection on the affect of images on humans is brought to life very well visually and also feel thematically enigmatically close to the director.
June 3, 2013
Arguably Cronenberg's masterpiece, this incredibly surreal journey manages better than many features to bring together big ideas, big questions, and big horror. An impeccable horror film which never fails to entertain.

David Cronenberg's early masterwork of cinematic metaphor. Thirty years after its release, while somewhat dated -- this film is still provocative, shocking and far deeper than at first glance. This surreal and grotesque work is pure genius on a budget.
December 8, 2013
Videodrome is provocative and original, yet the story isn't that engaging and it sort of looses itself in the end.
November 24, 2013
Greatest movie with James Woods ever. Classic Sci-fi at its best.
November 23, 2013
never coherent but still worth a look
November 17, 2013
While on the surface it may seem like an incoherent exercise of sadism, a closer look reveals Videodrome as an examination of society and the incredible power that media has to influence it.
November 17, 2013
weird but fascinating as hell and so forward for its time.
"love live the new flesh!"
