Beyond The Meme: Revisiting ‘Scanners’

27 March 2017 2:52 PM, PDT | | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Scanning one of David Cronenberg’s most popular, most flawed films.

Memory is a funny thing. Not funny, “haha,” so much, but funny in that hilariously terrifying way that makes you realize your own brain is out to destroy you. The fitting inspiration for this epiphany of corporeal opposition was a recent revisit of David Cronenberg’s Scanners.

You know Scanners. You may not have seen the movie, but at the very least you know it as a meme. If you’ve ever been scrolling through social media on that day when your geeky cousin (the one you forgot to wish a happy birthday because you could not spare the finger energy) has had just about enough, you’ve probably seen a colorful gif (that’s “G-if,” not “J-if” you heathens) of a man’s head exploding in gory detail.

Despite occurring a mere fifteen minutes into the film, that head explosion scene is certainly Scanners’ centerpiece »
