YMMV / Videodrome

  • Values Resonance: Although the movie takes it to acid-trip and Body Horror levels and applied to television, its prediction that people would primarily contact each other through videoscreen machines, adopt "strange new names" (i.e. online avatars), and become increasingly intertwined with a virtual world has become more relevant with the prevalant role of the internet in everyday life. Even the satirical element of having unscrupulous Moral Guardians trying to control it to advance their own ideology has become strangely prophetic.
