Scanners

Scanners

Directed by David Cronenberg

In David Cronenberg’s iconic sci-fi horror, a special group of people born with telekinetic powers – known as scanners – are sought out by weapon’s company, ConSec, for their own villainous means. Darryl Revok, a renegade scanner sets out to destroy the organisation but ConSec attempt to stop him by sending one of their own after him. Famous for its special mind-blowing FX, Scanners typifies Cronenberg’s early career melding body horror with sci-fi to create a unique, visceral experience that would go on to spawn two sequels. Contains violence and gore.

Davuid Cronenberg's iconic film finds telekinetic titans at odds.

Cast: Stephen Lack, Jennifer O'neill, Patrick McGoohan

A good film as to be expected coming from a man who has made many memorable pictures, but for me this isn't as enjoyable as Videodrome or Shivers.

I agree with reaperdc86. Not my favourite Cronenberg movie.

Love to sit back with a good pint of Cronenberg and this doesn't disappoint. Mind-blowing (quite literally...)
