1 thought on “Jump Scares in Videodrome (1983)”

  1. Better than Censor (2021), not quite as good as Tesis (1996). I think someone recommended this to me years back because they thought I would like how bizarre it was, but it honestly wasn’t very bizarre at all? It doesn’t feel any more bizarre than the average campy 80s horror movie anyway. Maybe I just have high expectations for bizarreness from watching weirder stuff on a regular basis.

    Still, it was pretty decent! I dig where the story wound up going. This is my first Cronenberg, but I know he’s known for his body horror, and this movie was certainly proof of his skill.
