1983 Certificate: 18


David Cronenberg's future-shocker pitches sleazy TV programmer James Woods into a virtual nightmare when he acquires a surreal adult channel for his station. There's no doubt it's addictive, but he senses something horribly sinister behind it... and his girlfriend Deborah Harry is part of the conspiracy. Cronenberg lets his imagination compellingly  unspool  in a mesmerising head-twister that provides some literally gut-wrenching ideas about the power of the media.
