Mick Garris on

Videodrome

Released 1983
Distributor Universal

Is nothing sacred? The just-announced remake of David Cronenberg’s bizarre and prescient sci-fi classic is unlikely to recapture the innovative impact of the original despite the technological update. A uniquely creepy and thought-provoking movie, the making of which is chronicled in Tim Lucas’s book Videodrome from Centipede Press. Long Live the New Flesh!
