Gunky’s Basement Season 2 continues with David Cronenberg’s 1983 mindmelter VIDEODROME! Long Live the New Flesh!

As always with this series, it’s a 35mm print on the largest screen at The Charles for just $5, hosted by Dan Deacon and Jimmy Joe Roche!

VIDEODROME stars James Woods and Deborah Harry. From wiki: “Set in Toronto during the early 80s, it follows the CEO of a small cable station who stumbles upon a broadcast signal …featuring extreme violence and torture. The layers of deception and mind-control conspiracy unfold as he uncovers the signal’s source and loses touch with reality in a series of increasingly bizarre and violent organic hallucinations.”

GUNKY’S BASEMENT is the ongoing collaboration between Maryland Film Festival and curators/hosts Dan Deacon and Jimmy Joe Roche. Here is our upcoming line-up for 2011, with more titles coming in 2012:

October 25–VIDEODROME (David Cronenberg)
November 29–DUNE (David Lynch)
December 13–GROUNDHOG DAY (Harold Ramis)
All are 35mm prints, 9pm at the Charles, for just 5 bucks!
