With James Woods, working for a cable network, and discovers a tv show which alters the viewers’ minds and causes them to hallucinate (or something to that effect?)
It also has Debbie Harry who plays his girlfriend I think..

I was given a copy of the movie last weekend but I haven’t watched it yet. I figured I’d come here and ask what your opinions were first?

It's a real headtrip! I quite like it.

NOT one to watch if you're squeamish in any way at all, but that pretty much sums up a lot of Cronenberg's films [Smile]

Mmmm never really got it, but to be honest with the exception of Shivers and the Fly I have never really liked Chronenberg's work!

I viewed it after renting it on video. I can remember reading in a science-fiction book about James Woods' own abdomen (!) at one point during the film opens up into a video cassette recorder slot.
