Scanners (Dir. David Cronenberg, 1981): Cameron Vale is living on the fringe of society, self-induced due to his telepathic ability to read other people's minds. Darryl Revok has the same condition and is the head of an underground association of so-called Scanners that want world domination. When Vale is taken to Dr Paul Ruth as a result of supposed insanity, he's enlisted into a program that will involve him in a battle against his fellow Scanners.

Scanners 2 - The New Order (Dir. Christian Duguay, 1991): In order to take over the city, corrupt police commander Forrester intends to use a telepathic breed of human, Scanners. To control the Scanners, Forrester enlists the help of evil scientist, Dr Morse, who wants to conduct mind control experiments on the Scanners with a new drug. Unfortunately the side effects render the Scanners incapable, so Forrester finds David Kellum, a good, rational Scanner who, unaware of his own powers, agrees to work with him.

Scanners 3 - The Takeover (Dir. Christian Duguay,1992): A young, lovable Scanner with extraordinary telepathic powers transforms into a murderous megalomaniac after taking one of her father's experimental drugs. After taking over his pharmaceutical drugs company, the deranged Scanner runs amok on a killing spree and takes over a television company in her quest for world domination. Will her Scanner brother, fresh from a spell in a Thai Monastery, have the power to stop her?

 Great horror box set

| | See all Greasey's reviews (68)

Included in this box is the Scanners trilodgy. The first film directed by David Cronenberg is a classic, with lots of special features.

However the 2 sequels are poor compared to the original. I would only recommend this if you are a fan of science fiction horror.

 Well worth a look,but dont look at them too long......BOOM!

I have to say I was thoroughly entertained by this trilogy.Yes the original is without a doubt a masterpiece but I think the Sequels including the two Scanner Cop movies not included in this set get a lot of harsh press.They are great as stand alone films and in no way have the same interlect as their older Brother.But then what would have been worse would have been if they had tried to,which they dont.Scanners 2 and 3 are fun,entertaining and of course have the odd exploding head in them.Which is always nice.
