Videodrome – Criterion Collection (NTSC Region 1)


Stunning 2 disc special edition of David Cronenberg`s classic horror film starring James Woods.

Out of stock


When Max Renn goes looking for edgy new shows for his sleazy cable TV
station, he stumbles across the pirate broadcast of a hyperviolent torture show
called Videodrome. As he unearths the origins of the program, he embarks on a
hallucinatory journey into a shadow world of righ-wing conspiracies,
sadomasochistic sex games, and bodily transformation. Renn’s ordinary life
dissolves around him, and he finds himself at the center of a conflict between
opposing factions in the struggle to control the truth behind the radical human
future of ‘the New Flesh.’
