Synopsis


Scanners
The title of this David Cronenberg sci-fi horror film refers to a group of people who have telekinetic powers that allow them to read minds and give them the ability to make other people's heads explode. The children of a group of women who took an experimental tranquilizer during their pregnancies, the scanners are now adults and have become outcasts from society. But Darryl (Michael Ironside) decides to create an army of scanners to take over the world. The only person who can stop him is his brother Cameron (Stephen Lack), who wants to forget that he was ever a scanner. Winner of the International Fantasy Film Award at the 1983 Fantasporto Film Festival, Scanners was followed by a pair of sequels, neither of which involved Cronenberg. ~ Matthew Tobey, Rovi

    This science fiction classic should be part of every film collection, and I was thrilled to replace my original Criterion film with this Blu Ray upgrade. The cinematography is beautiful and exciting, the upgrade is a welcome addition to my Criterion collection.

    Scanners is a true Scifi/Horror classic. The special effects are amazing even when compared to todays. Very cool story line, NOT CHEESY. A must for any collector seeking classics.

    I have been waiting for years for this movie to be released on DVD. Not only has it been released on DVD, but Blu-ray format which is an extra plus for Blu-ray fans.
