Scanner's III the best of the Scanners trilogy.
19 October 1998 | by (Baltimore,Maryland) – See all my reviews

I rented this movie by mistake about three years ago, and ever since then, I've been a huge Scanners fan. This movie, which is in my opinion the best of all the Scanners films. Stars, Liliana Kormorowska (The Assignment, Screamers) as Helena Monet a scanner bent on ruling the world because of something called eph-3 which completely transforms her from you average every day nice girl to one of the most sadistic people I've ever seen. Her brother Alex (played by Steve Parish) is the only scanner with enough power to stop her and what ensues is an awesome confrontation of scanner power the likes of which I've never seen before. This movie is a must see if you've enjoyed the other Scanner's films and if you've never seen a scanner's film why not start with this one?
