Synopsis

Max Renn is the president of a local UHF TV station that specialises in extreme, sensationalist, pornographic programming. Looking for the next major programme for his station, he happens upon the pirated signal of Videodrome , a snuff show depicting random people being tortured and slowly murdered. From there his life becomes altered in the most surreal of ways. His television becomes 'alive' and weirdly sexual, he grows a large vagina in his abdomen, and his hand slowly becomes a tumescent handgun.

LONG LIVE THE NEW FLESH!

A film that defies explanation, Videodrome must be seen to be believed.
