Videodrome (David Cronenberg) **** - I confess. I actually didn't know much about this film's plot beforehand. All I knew was that it was David Cronenberg's horror movie/dark satire on television. So the directions the film went was highly surprising for me. James Woods plays a sleazy TV executive who runs a small-time cable network that specializes in sex and violence and stumbles upon something called Videodrome. The film features Cronenberg's signature body horror and shocking and gross effects. Despite being obviously dated, the film still manages to hold up.
