Really Awful Movies: Ep 133 – Videodrome



This week, the Cronenberg classic, arguably his best film, Videodrome. It’s certainly up there with The Fly or Crash.

We delve into the Toronto TV station that partly inspired the film, the media musings of Marshall McLuhan, the changing media landscape, where this film fits into David’s oeuvre, and of course…gore, gore and more gore!

It’s a thrill to see Toronto as Toronto and not New York. And what better way to showcase our hometown than this masterful film, which stars James Woods, Sonja Smits and Blondie singer Debbie Harry.

Long live the new flesh!
