Variety
Film is dotted with video jargon and ideology which proves more fascinating than distancing. And Cronenberg amplifies the freaky situation with a series of stunning visual effects. (Review of Original Release) Full Review
Dave Kehr
Chicago Reader
Never coherent and frequently pretentious, the film remains an audacious attempt to place obsessive personal images before a popular audience--a kind of Kenneth Anger version of "Star Wars." (Review of Original Release) Full Review
Elvis Mitchell
The New York Times
Though Videodrome finally grows grotesque and a little confused, it begins very well and sustains its cleverness for a long while. (Review of Original Release) Full Review
Scott Tobias
The Onion A.V. Club
Its dense mysteries remain more tantalizing than distancing: No other director integrates the creepy with the cerebral quite like Cronenberg. (Review of DVD 9/13/04) Full Review
