“An experience less akin to traditional cinema and more like a kind of surrealist vaudeville. So utterly compelling, this pair of short features become almost impossible not to recommend, especially to devotees of the director’s work. As the results of pioneering cinematic experimentation they are easily some of the most interesting genre works out there, and an essential piece of their director’s filmography… as potent today as they were forty years ago.”

“While other forward-thinking science-fiction films have followed the Texas Instruments TI-99/4A into obsolescence, Videodrome seems more prescient than ever. Its dense mysteries remain more tantalizing than distancing: No other director integrates the creepy with the cerebral quite like Cronenberg, whose best work suggests a gorehound working on his dissertation. Photography may be death, but Videodrome hasn’t aged a bit.”
Scott Tobias, The Onion AV Club [Read More]
