With Michael Ironside, Lawrence Dane, Jennifer O'Neill, Stephen Lack, Robert A. Silverman, Lee Broker, Mavor Moore, Adam Ludwig
Directed by David Cronenberg

Classic Cronenberg illustrating his unconventional mind. There is a small portion of the population born with incredible telekinetic and mind reading powers, and the ability to use it in a variety of ways – be it for good or evil. One such Scanner unaware of his abilities (thinking he’s nuts) becomes the focal point in a literal battle of minds against one insane man who, with his followers, plan to use their powers for destruction. The exploding head special effects had the world talking.
