Videodrome In the world that lies ahead of us all, reality and hallucination will merge and interchange So when Max Renn saw the flesh of his stomach swell and redden as though a giant worm was moving beneath the skin, was that imagination or reality And when the skin split and the flesh parted like giant lips, soft and bloodied When he could sink his fingers, his whole hand, deep inside, feeling and probing through the wall of his own stomach As the juices, thick and warm, clung and sucked gently at his finger tips, drawing him in As the bile rose, hot with revulsion in his throat Was that a nightmare or reality

    This was a surprisingly good adaptation of David Cronenberg s twisted and surreal 1983 movie The main reason I wanted to read this was because it was written by Dennis Etchison, one of my favorite horror writers of the 80s The other reason was because I wanted to see if Etchison could possibly pull off the seemingly impossible task of translating such an intensely visual film to mere words yes, I know ALL films are visual, but this one is especia

    Videodrome is my favorite film Reading this was both an amazing experience and a letdown The author does a good job of giving the screenplay life though the frequent expositions can be intrusive during dialogue and there are a ton of extra lines, situations, and subplots not in the finished film which was great for me, the berfan However, David Cronenberg s screenplay was clearly unpolished when given to the author here It went through many revisions, even con

    Won t read film tie ins Some of them are good, especially when the writer is Dennis Etchison under an alias A hard task to displace the capital c classic film, but doesn t need to Based on an early version of the screenplay, so deleted scenes abound No perfunctory retelling of the movie, a projection of the source material into different dimensions, and a legitimate novel in it s own right, prefaced by Etchison s own dedication For those who feel what they see For th

    Since videodrome is such a visual film its hard to get that across in a novel, but Jack Martin makes a pretty good attempt to use words to try to come to terms with things for which there are no words If you love the film then the novel is a wonderful companion piece, although I m not sure how much sense it will make if you re unfamiliar with the story Its based on an earlier draft of the script and so there are some subtle differences, scenes in a slightly different order

    Excellent screenplay adaptation, though I have to say I liked the film much better, the book just isn t the same without those horrifying scenes Cronenberg gave us in his film.

    Strange, erotic, hallucinatory, visionary, hypnotic, and just plain insanely brilliant those are just of few the words that come to mind when trying to describe David Cronenberg s 1983 masterpiece Videodrome Quite simply, it is an addictive work art, shockingly prophetic when you watch it today, andaffecting than ever This is a movie that foresaw virtual reality, the internet, reality TV, video blogging vlogging and YouTube back in 1983 While it is impossible for a novelization to ca Strange, erotic, halluci
