By now we’ve come to terms with the fact that habitual Netflix binges will render our bodies soft, weak, and useless. But if we start tearing open our own abdomens, extracting handguns, and setting off on a gory rampage, we promise to stop and read a book or something. In David Cronenberg’s Videodrome (1984), poor James Woods learns his lesson too late. In the quintessentially ’80s cult classic, his character becomes obsessed with finding the origin of a violent, hardcore porny underground TV program, all the while experiencing dire hallucinations. Debbie Harry makes her film debut as his sadomasochistic femme fatale. It screens tonight as part of the Nitehawk Nasties series.
