10 Seconds: The Pain Begins. 15 Seconds: You Can't Breathe. 20 Seconds: You Explode.

With Scanners, David Cronenberg plunges us into one of his most terrifying and thrilling sci-fi worlds. After a man with extraordinary—and frighteningly destructive—telepathic abilities is nabbed by agents from a mysterious rogue corporation, he discovers he is far from the only possessor of such strange powers, and that some of the other “scanners” have their minds set on world domination, while others are trying to stop them. A trademark Cronenberg combination of the visceral and the cerebral, this phenomenally gruesome 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

 

Cronenberg: In the Flesh 

In eager anticipation of David Cronenberg's return to his body horror roots with Crimes of the Future, we've programmed three weekends of the master filmmaker's work. Dead Ringers and Crash open, followed by Cronenberg's visceral collaborations with actor Viggo Mortensen in A History of Violence and Eastern Promises. Finally, we'll have our minds blown by Scanners and chant "long live the new flesh" at Videodrome!
