Well, were to begin?
First off, when I first saw Scanners, it really didn't do that much for
me. Nowadays, I've learnt to view the film through more enlightened
eyes, and appreciate it for the masterpiece that is most rightfully is.
Apart from the much-lauded 'exploding head' scene (which could have
used a little more blood spattering everywhere) one of the film's most
chilling scenes is at the very beginning when the lead character,
Cameron Vale (Stephen Lack) causes a woman to have a fit in a shopping
mall before being captured by a pair of heavies. The scene was so
convincingly played out that it really shock me up.
The more interesting aspect is the fact that most of these
'scanners'(or telepathic curiosities as the CEO of Consec calls them)
are usually forced to live on the fringes of society as their
telekinetic powers are feared and misunderstood by many. It would seem
that the director, David Cronenberg, was using this plot device as a
metaphor to comment on society's prejudicial attitudes towards the
mentally ill. Like many of his low-budget horror films right up to 'The
Fly' (1986) 'Scanners' has a very subversive, fly-on-the-wall take on
society's ills. The modern society portrayed in 'Scanners' is a world
viewed through the eyes of the outcast.
Throughout the film, there is a general feeling of starkness, from the
synthesiser-tinged score by Howard Shore, to the general sparse look of
the film. This gives the viewer a rather apt feeling of coldness and
Michael Ironside steals the show as the unhinged renegade scanner,
Darryl Revok, who has a vast army of scanner converts at his disposal
ready and willing to annihilate anyone unfortunate enough to stand in
The only down side, however is the casting of Stephen Lack as Cameron
Vale. Although he makes a fairly decent effort of playing his part,
Lack just doesn't seem to have that much-needed 'spark' to bring his
character to life.
All in all, 'Scanners' comes highly recommended as a 'must-see'
