  1. Hollywood Overdose's rating of the film Videodrome

    "Video" meaning "I see", and "drome" meaning "running; racetrack". We, viewers, spectators, people in general are all in this racetrack, running in the world, through the world. Videodrome it's our back to the present because, personally, I feel like we live the past. The elitist live in the future, the genius live in the present and we live in the past. Now we're closer to the present. Our mind is far more open now.

  2. Draughtsman Without Contract's rating of the film Videodrome

  3. irzan hakim's rating of the film Videodrome

  4. George Bradley's rating of the film Videodrome

  5. Jegsy's rating of the film Videodrome

    While not as viscerally shocking then as now, Videodrome is still a powerful critique of the mass media as a desensitizing medium. A moral film that swerves the moralizing of They Live, and comes packed with a fair amount of humour. Probably Cronenberg's best (?)

  6. Inteleter's rating of the film Videodrome

    Just as disturbing as the first time I saw this. Practical effects hold up insanely well, as do the themes. Serves as a good companion piece to eXistenZ.

  7. Dada Kubin's rating of the film Videodrome

    Cronenberg’s true masterpiece. Videodrome was made well before the Internet or flat screen TVs, yet it captures beautifully the paranoia of the mass media age, the fear of losing touch with reality in a world that’s as much unreal as it is hyperreal. Videodrome hasn’t lost a bit of its actuality or credibility. It’s hallucinatory, surreal, erotic, philosophical - a vortex that sucks you in and makes your brain whirl.

  8. Victor Gonzalez's rating of the film Videodrome

    Cronenberg predicts the ravaging effect of media on the human flesh and soul 30 years ahead of his time. This is a masterpiece and not even 5 stars are enough.

  9. Daunay's rating of the film Videodrome

    Très intéressent. Voir comme il faudrait voir, faire comme il faudrait faire et sentir comme il faudrait sentir... Une éclairante vision de notre société.

  10. Pierre.F's rating of the film Videodrome

    Parmi les films les plus inattendues de ma vie!! j'aime beaucoup l'univers et cette fascination de Cronenberg pour les images et les corps. Il y a dans le monde représenté comme un propos prophétique sur notre rapport à la télévision et à la consommation de l'image.

  11. Joaquín Font's rating of the film Videodrome

    All this darkness, how did I not see it sooner?

  12. Dan and Val Freeman's rating of the film Videodrome

    Other than the amazing 'Crash' this is still my favourite Cronenberg ... packed full of so many ideas, visions, great acting from James Woods, superb cinematography, haunting score ... "Long live the New Flesh" indeed!

  13. SamSalt's rating of the film Videodrome

    I don't think it's worn well. The themes are still very relevant but Cronenberg did it much better in Existenz.

  14. Zanna Walsh's rating of the film Videodrome

    Another oldie from my past..I saw it on video tape! Some things have stood well..some effects better than others, the scar to gaping stomach wound particularly. Was it just me, but did alot of the guns look like penis's?..I think it lost its way toward the end, but, Cronenberg is never dull. A fun re visit, ta Mubi..Now i must go dive head first into my TV.

  15. Mimic Hootings's rating of the film Videodrome

    Cronenberg on good form here, steadily building up then undermining rational explanations before fully embracing the weird.

  16. Kornovska's rating of the film Videodrome

    What a fucking nightmare? Sérieusement, excellent film! Complètement tordu au point où par moments on ne distingue plus le vrai du faux, même si on comprend que le personnage principal ne peut que s'effondrer davantage dans la démence... La critique d'un monde où la télévision (ou les médiums en général) deviendrait plus vraie que la réalité est fort intéressante. Bref, de l'excellent Cronenberg!

  17. Tone Ottilie Frederiksen's rating of the film Videodrome

    Deeply disturbing, psychotic nightmare stuff in a kitsch 80's world. Cronenberg seems to be taking a moral stance against violence and sex on screen, but honestly he just seems fascinated by it.

  18. ñiñiñi's rating of the film Videodrome

    no puedo recordar las pelis que he visto el ultimo tiempo. quizas es porque ya solo veo naruto

  19. Shane Ewen's rating of the film Videodrome

    I don't advise rocking your baby to sleep during the final act.

  20. Luke Corradine's rating of the film Videodrome

    Cronenberg demonstrate how good horror has to have a relevant social message throughout. Touching on the moral controversy caused by the advent of the porno industry in the early 80s, Videodrome delivers well beyond the genre, establishing a unique directorial style that will continue in more recent titles such as eXistenZ and Naked Lunch.

  21. virginwolf's rating of the film Videodrome

    This makes so much sense in this post truth, 'fake news', 'I belive therefore I'm right' kind of Trump era politics, media and images...

  22. cosmicsouldeathdisco's rating of the film Videodrome

  23. Gavin Erickson's rating of the film Videodrome

    The technology may change, but the vision of Videodrome is timeless. "Why would anybody watch a scum show like Videodrome?"

  24. Thoke's rating of the film Videodrome

    The practical visuals were like none I have ever seen before and will be imprinted in my brain like a Videodrome-tumor forever. Worth a re-watch. Many layers behind all the gore. The surrealistic storytelling is masterfully executed.
