Videodrome (1983) Directed by David Cronenberg. Distributed by Universal Pictures.

It was 1983 the real start of the VCR revolution,with the models becoming more readily available,and affordable,when this film was also released. A film about a TV corporation wanting to mind control,via TV content,which will develop a tumour in your head,that will give you violent Halucinations.

Directed by David Cronenberg, and Starring James Woods, and a young Debbie Harry,in this violent,almost pornographic nightmare,of State sponsored snuff movies,which when broadcast,using subliminal imagery,that turns those who watch into drones,with violent Halucinations,followed by Death.

With some of the most depraved imagery seen on screen,including the above image of James Woods stomach turning into a VCR,and the usual blood and gore violence you would expect from a David Cronenberg movie, I can remember watching this during the Eighties,bizarrely on VHS,and repulsing me then,so I really need to have a decent  re-run of this movie to see if I would still be offended by this movie. But with groundbreaking effects,and prosthetics  created by the Genius of Stan Baker, of American Werewolf fame,we have a truly disgusting film about mind control.

Handjob cabin, is certainly not a real film, but is a fun, rude trailer, fan made by Bennet Silverman about a randy female ghost intent on jerking men into the afterlife. Obviously Cumming Soon.

Is Signs a greater masterpiece than previously thought. Is M Night Shyamalan's film about Demons rather than Aliens and we have been watching the film wrong and assuming the Alien invasion rather than an apocalyptic Demonic invasion of Earth instead.
