Time Warp: Videodrome 1983

I defy anyone to be capable of forgetting Videodrome. This cult classic, with the glues into your mind catchphrase “long live the new flesh,” is one of the movies I watched for my English class about automated violence. I didn’t know what to expect, but, this wasn’t it. It is a movie you can’t anticipate but the film itself anticipated many issues for the future of media. It is was one of the only movies that provides moments where I’ve truly been taken aback and thought “Wow that’s really weird…” The least of which is seeing Debbie Harry with brunette hair which is undeniably mind warping. Last, the trailer doesn’t do it justice but the music is phenomenally industrially.
