DVD Review - Scanners: The Complete Collection

Scanners: The Complete Collection DVD Box Set

Scanners, 1981.

Directed by David Cronenberg.

Starring Stephen Lack, Jennifer O'Neill, Patrick McGoohan, Lawrence Dane and Charles Shamata.

Scanners, for those who have not seen it - which was me - is a horror film which plays like a thriller, making for an interesting angle. The film wasn't for me I must admit, but that doesn't mean my view of it is a negative one.

Watching with fresh eyes over 30 years after it was released, the film looked old. Very old. The plot centers around a revolution taking place: 'Scanners' - human beings with a mutation who have telepathic abilities - are being lead by a man named Revek, played by Michael Ironside, and fighting back against those who wish to use them for their own means.

Scanners III: The Takeover Blu-ray Review

7 April 2013 2:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Christian Duguay

Starring: Liliana Komorowska, Steve Parrish, Valerie Valois, Colin Fox, Daniel Pilon, Peter Wight,

Running Time: 104 Minutes

Certificate: 18

Scanners II: The New Order was a nice little surprise, so surely this third instalment released the same year, with the same director and writer, would be another interesting take on the telekinetic warriors known as Scanners? You’d be wrong to think that. Scanners III: The Takeover is an appalling end to the trilogy, and one where it would be giving the film too much credit to even suggest that the hilarity one experiences whilst watching, is in anyway intentional.

It appears Duguay and writer B.J. Nelson put all their effort into Part II, because some of this film is simply inconceivable. You know you’re on to a loser when the opening crawl (an unnecessary opening crawl) claims some of the key events in the mythology took place in the 1940s, »
