SeasonQFT Late - Cult & Classic

In anticipation of Crimes of the Future, QFT Late presents a brand new 4K restoration of David Cronenberg's sci-fi classic Videodrome. Starring James Woods and Debbie Harry in one of her first film roles.

When Max Renn goes looking for edgy new shows for his sleazy cable TV station, he stumbles across the pirate broadcast of a hyperviolent torture show called Videodrome. As he struggles to unearth the origins of the program, he embarks on a hallucinatory journey into a shadow world of right-wing conspiracies, sadomasochistic sex games, and bodily transformation.

Videodrome is one of writer/director David Cronenberg’s most original and provocative works, fusing social commentary with shocking elements of sex and violence. With groundbreaking special effects makeup by Academy Award winner Rick Baker, Videodrome has come to be regarded as one of the most influential and mind-bending science fiction films of the 1980s.

Videodrome has been restored in 4K in 2022 by Arrow Films under the supervision of James White and James Pearcy at Silver Salt laboratory, from the original 35mm camera negative and intermediate elements preserved at NBC Universal. This restoration has been approved by David Cronenberg.
