The era of videotapes may be over, television may have been replaced with the internet, but the message of this movie -- or, at least, the intent -- is still relevant and still vital and [i]Videodrome[/i] does not disappoint almost 30 years after its release..
A lot of credit for what makes Videodrome such an outstanding film has to go to the legendary Rick Baker, who provides some excellent practical effects that convey the extremely visceral ways in which Videodrome starts to affect the people who are exposed to it.
Cronenberg is one of those directors that is talented enough to make a bizarre film not seem too out of control.
