      Videodrome with James Woods, Deborah Harry, and Sonja Smits Since I feel that James Woods is the finest actor around, I just had to watch this movie even though the title was nebulous. Well, I am happy to say that Videodrome is the best science fiction movie that I have ever seen. My mouth was open in awe during the entire film as I was totally absorbed in the plot and felt part of the story as seen through the eyes of Woods.

      James Woods is Max Rand, a president of


      cable channel 83, which steals pirate signals from channels worldwide to broadcast shows that offer soft core porn and sexual violence. Debbie Harry is his sexual partner who is hooked on kinky sex and needs to be tortured for pleasure.

      One day the signal consultant for the station finds a bizarre show originating in Pittsburgh. It is called Videodrome and Woods becomes hooked as he watches a naked woman being beaten.

      He becomes personally involved when Miss Harry decides to go to Pittsburgh to be in the show. Woods pays an investigator to check ...


      • out the station and she reports that the show is for real and that it has a philosophy that makes it dangerous.

        When he goes there to interview its founder, Professor Oblivion, he learns that he only lives through his videos. Here is where the really weird action begins.

        The more that Woods watches Videodrome the more he hallucinates. I found that the visual effects were top notch for an older film.

        In fact, I have never seen special effects of this magnitude and it pulled me into the story line even more.

        The film is not scary, but rather it forces you to feel the panic that the lead actor feels.

        I do not think that any other actor could have had the same effect on the audience. You find yourself wondering what is reality and what is hallucination.

        In fact, I still do not know. At the end, Woods proclaims, Long live the new flesh.

        ” I just do not understand. Were they aliens? Could this possibly happen for real? Do not miss this classic.

        It will grip you and never let you loose.
