Your reality is already HALF video hallucination. If you’re not careful, it will become TOTAL hallucination. You’ll have to learn to live in a very strange new world.
Directed and written by David Cronenberg (The Fly, eXistenZ), this is a great thriller/horror following the head of a bizarre TV station who finds the broadcast signal of snuff films, and starts an adventure following the signal, losing touch with reality in a series of increasingly bizarre hallucinations.
The tone of the movie is ominous, has a few body-horror scenes, the directing keeps you under tension at most times, its techno-surrealism being only surpassed by the acting of the main actors. It is cryptic, weird, stomach-turning at some points, and it has a great mysterious and creepy soundtrack. Oh, and it has a lot of nudity. And a Hitler ballerina
It touches a lot of classic cyberpunk topics, as well as modern themes, like virtual reality, digital alter-ego, psycho-sexuality, and others.
Videodrome – the next phase in the evolution of man as a technological animal.
