    The characters are bitter and hateful, the images are nauseating, and the ending is bleak enough that when the screen fades to black it's a relief.. Videodrome, whatever its qualities, has got to be one of the least entertaining films of all time.

    I first saw this movie about 5 years ago, and I find something new about it each year when I watch it again in the fall. Creepy, and makes you question everything. Full Review »

    Some food for thought, but not as much as I had hoped. Continually strives to take the plot where you're not expecting, which is meritorious, but unfulfilling. Falls short of greatness, and has dated badly. The future turned out to be a whole lot worse than even David C could imagine. Full Review »

    While not all David Cronenburg's films can be considered masterpieces, this one certainly is. The special effects look disturbing even by today's standards. The story and acting are pretty good too. The only thing is lacks is a clear story. While it leaves some of the plot to the viewer's imagination, it still is confusing. But this still is a great horror films that you should watch. Just not with your parents. Full Review »
