In 1983 cult director David Cronenberg, fresh off the success of Scanners, created his most ambitious horror film of his career, following a sleezy television executive who after pickup a rogue transmission starts down rabbit hole of sex, violence, paranoia and the grotesque. Starring James Woods and Debbie Harry, Videodrome has maintained a cult status through the years but has been considered to the critics as a cornerstone of Cronenberg's mastery of cinema. But does it deserve the acclaim or should it be Death to Videodrome and long live the new flesh? MovieDude Eric, Kent & Lobster return to Arthouse of Horror to find out.
