LONG LIVE THE NEW FLESH! This week, Jared and Clint dive deep into the realms of the cathode ray tube as they discuss 1984’s Videodrome, directed by David Cronenberg. This mid-80s sci-fi mindscrew about a mysterious TV signal that causes hallucinations in its victims is one of the Canadian auteur’s weirdest and best. Check out out custom cocktail and drinking rules below!
