The characters are bitter and hateful, the images are nauseating, and the ending is bleak enough that when the screen fades to black it's a relief.. Videodrome, whatever its qualities, has got to be one of the least entertaining films of all time.

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)

Though Videodrome finally grows grotesque and a little confused, it begins very well and sustains its cleverness for a long while.
