Scanners
Cameron Vale is living on the fringe of society, self-induced due to his telepathic ability to read other people’s minds. Darryl Revok has the same condition and is the head of an underground association of so-called Scanners that want world domination. When Vale is taken to Dr Paul Ruth as a result of supposed insanity, he’s enlisted into a program that will involve him in a battle against his fellow Scanners.

Scanners II: The New Order
In order to take over the city, corrupt police commander Forrester intends to use a telepathic breed of human, Scanners. To control the Scanners, Forrester enlists the help of evil scientist, Dr Morse, who wants to conduct mind control experiments on the Scanners with a new drug. Unfortunately the side effects render the Scanners incapable, so Forrester finds David Kellum, a good, rational Scanner who, unaware of his own powers, agrees to work with him.

Scanners III: The Takeover
A young, lovable Scanner with extraordinary telepathic powers transforms into a murderous megalomaniac after taking one of her father’s experimental drugs. After taking over his pharmaceutical drugs company, the deranged Scanner runs amok on a killing spree and takes over a television company in her quest for world domination. Will her Scanner brother, fresh from a spell in Thai Monastery, have the power to stop her?

The three-disc Special Collector’s Edition SCANNERS BOXED SET will be released on DVD by Anchor Bay UK on 18th July 2005.
