Strange Canada explodes into The Metro Cinema with David Cronenberg's first major hit: Scanners. A group of telepathic killers led by Darryl Revok (Michael Ironside in his first major role) are intent on world domination. A rogue "scanner" with the same formidable psychic powers stands up to their nefarious scheme and seeks to create a world where scanners and humans can coexist.

Starring renowned Canadian painter Stephen Lack, and featuring "mind-blowing" makeup effects by Dick Smith, Scanners helped pave the way for the modern Canadian horror film. Join us for this psychic thriller featuring one of the most rewound scenes in the history of home video.

Metro Cinema gratefully acknowledges Laurem Productions for donating the screening rental!
