A clever combo of telekinetic terror, cerebral shock and head-exploding carnage, David Cronenberg’s infamous science fiction thriller packs a punch that will blow your mind. In the near future, society has been infiltrated by a small group of powerful telepathic psychics. But when a renegade group of Scanners sets their sights on world domination, only a fellow Scanner can stop them.
“Truly horrifying” – Los Angeles Times
“A trademark Cronenberg combination of the visceral and the cerebral, this phenomenally gruesom and provocative film about the expanses and limits of the human mind was the Canadian director’s breakout hit in the United States.” – The Criterion Collection
