Scanners

1981

David Cronenberg
Director

Covert organisations seek to recruit Scanners, individuals with telekinetic powers. Possibly the best of the early Cronenberg shockers, with a rip-snorting mix of thriller and horror elements. Make-up effects by Dick (The Exorcist) Smith and Chris (The Fly) Walas are literally eye-popping. Highly recommended for those without a nervous disposition.
