Scanners (1981)




   Day 29 finds us in a dystopian Canadian future where an outbreak of telepaths or “scanners” is becoming a growing threat. Among them is Cameron Vale, a homeless man with incredible abilities, who is about to be kidnapped by the government and sent to take out a rogue psychic operative on a killing spree. With a synth score and masterful special makeup effects by Dick Smith, Scanners is the kind of horror that has you on edge from subtle beginning to spectacular mind fucking end. Toss in a career making Michael Ironside performance that would have him typecasted for decades and a head explosion that would make a nun spit and you got yourself a stew going. It’s simple, it’s suspenseful, it’s Cronenberg. What more do you need?
