Videodrome is a Canadian science fiction body horror film written and directed by and starring , Sonja Smits, and . Set in Toronto during the early 1980s, it follows the CEO of a small UHF television station who stumbles upon a broadcast signal featuring violence and torture.

Max Renn is the President of Channel 83 Civic-TV, a small television station on the UHF dial. He defends his programming of largely X-rated shows – which depict graphic sex and extreme violence – as a pure matter of economic survival as a small station.

Videodrome’s messaging is blunt and literal – the media as something infectious, sickly, seductive, and physically and mentally harmful.
