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.

Scanners III: The Takeover Blu-ray Review

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,
