Sleazy TV programmer Max Reen stumbles across an odd and hidden broadcast simply labeled Videodrome that shows torture, sex and murder. Supposedly its fake but Max feels its real. His stupid girlfriend, turned on by it all, goes off to audition and Maxs investigation into the weird and surreal, if not disturbing, world of Videodrome, its secret transmission and how it all relates to the mind begins. Its Crononeberg at one of his weirdest and best and James Woods gives a very personal performance...all while really having something to say about violence and sex as entertainment. in fact, Videodrome more or less predicted what television was likely to become: more and more depraved.
