    Set in a dystopian near-future, Videodrome takes us into the life of Max Renn (James Woods), a cynical television executive seeking sensational content for his station. He stumbles upon Videodrome, a disturbingly realistic broadcast that blurs the lines between perception and reality. As he delves deeper into the show's origins, he is drawn into a dark world of subliminal messaging, hallucination, and violence. Directed by visionary filmmaker David Cronenberg, this science-fiction horror film explores themes of media manipulation, body horror, and technophobia.
