David Cronenberg

P&I - Director Bio

David Cronenberg (b. 1943) is a Canadian filmmaker, actor and author. He is known for his horror genre. His films have won numerous awards, including the Jury Prize at the Cannes Film Festival for his film Crash (1996).


Part of the Retrospective: The Future Is History Strand


James Woods stars as the television executive for whom fantasy and reality start to merge, as he and his girlfriend, played by Deborah Harry, (of legendary pop group Blondie), are slowly drawn into the nightmarish world of Videodrome, a mysterious illegal broadcast of 'snuff' pornography. Still regarded as one of his finest works, David Cronenberg’s mind-bending sci-fi thriller, featuring unforgettable body horror work by special-effects guru Rick Baker, is as provocative and disturbing today as it was thirty four years ago.
