Strap in (or is that on?) for a hyper-surreal neon drenched fever dream of sensual and sensational proportions as visionary director Gem Deger drags VIDEODROME kicking and screaming through a friday night at G.A.Y. Late.
Demir suddenly wakes up with no memory of the past and in an unfamiliar apartment. Surrounded by balloons and an oinking pig, he scurries his way out only to be stopped by the hunky and handsome Andrew who assures the teen that he actually lives there, with the hunk, his girlfriend and their pet pig. As he uncomfortably settles into this new reality, Demir quietly longs for his heterosexual roommate. He gets his chance when Andrew’s girlfriend Drew ODs and they stash her body under the sofa. Demir now does everything he can to be possessed by this man, all the while ignoring the violent clues of how he got there. An intoxicating blend of fantasy, violence, passion and control.
