Behind the scenes of Videodrome.


February 4, 1983 — David Cronenberg’s Videodrome opens in theaters.
"I used to watch [TV] a lot as a kid, and that’s where the idea for Videodrome came from. We had this rotating antenna, and when all the networks went off the air, you could rotate your antenna and pick up some strange things, like from Buffalo, Queens, Toronto, the Great Lakes. They’d be these fascinating, kind of shadowy and mysterious programs, and you weren’t sure whether half of what you were seeing was your imagination or reality.” — David Cronenberg
