Scanners

Unread post by Krappy » 1 year ago

Scanners spawned two sequels; Scanners II: The New Order (1991), Scanners III: The Takeover (1992) and a spin-off with its own sequel; Scanner Cop (1994), Scanners: The Showdown (also known as Scanner Cop II) (1995). A remake was announced in 2007, but as of 2014 has not gone into production. None of these projects has involved Cronenberg as director.

Scanners (1981)


Scanners is a 1981 Canadian science-fiction horror film written and directed by David Cronenberg and starring Jennifer O’Neill, Steven Lack, Michael Ironside, and Patrick McGoohan. In the film, “scanners” are people with unusual telepathic and telekinetic powers. ConSec, a purveyor of weaponry and security systems, searches out scanners to use them for its own purposes. The film’s plot concerns the attempt by Darryl Revok, a renegade scanner, to wage a war against ConSec. Another scanner, Cameron Vale, is dispatched by ConSec to stop Revok.
