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.
