Synopsis

Controversial horror auteur David Cronenberg gained his first international success with this conspiracy thriller, featuring a notorious exploding head sequence. A group of psychics, nicknamed 'scanners' for their ability to read minds, realise they can also induce massive brain haemorrhaging in their subjects by locking into their nervous system. A 'good' scanner is sent out by doctors to track down the psychics who are using their powers for evil purposes.
