Scanners III: The Takeover

 (1991)

Scanners III: The Takeover Blu-ray features poor video and solid audio, but overall it's a disappointing Blu-ray release

A young female scanner turns from a sweet young thing into a murderous, power-crazed villain after she takes an experimental drug developed by her father. Her brother, who is also a scanner, is the only one powerful enough to stop her.

For more about Scanners III: The Takeover and the Scanners III: The Takeover Blu-ray release, see Scanners III: The Takeover Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 1.5 out of 5.

Starring: Liliana Komorowska, Valérie Valois, Steve Parrish, Colin Fox (I), Daniel Pilon, Peter Wight
Director: Christian Duguay

Scanners III: The Takeover Blu-ray, Video Quality

  2.0 of 5

Scanners III: The Takeover is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Scream Factor (an imprint of Shout! Factory) with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.78:1. It's probably only appropriate that this shoddiest of the Scanners films features the worst looking video. This, like its immediate predecessor, is rather soft and pallid looking quite a bit of the time, but this entry is plagued even more by persistent mosquito noise which swarms over the image, especially in darker scenes (see screenshot 18 in the board room for a good example). The softness issue is strangely variable, with the image at least decently precise some of the time and then devolving into much more muddiness seemingly within an instant (take a look at screenshot 6). Balancing that at least somewhat are some rather nice looking special effects as well as one or two filtered scenes (screenshot 5) which look relatively impressive, at least by comparison.


Scanners III: The Takeover Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

As with Scanners II, Scanners III: The Takeover offers a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 track that sounds perfectly fine, even without an overabundance of stereo separation. This outing has a bit more of an issue balancing dialogue with a sometimes busy sound design, but things are reasonably clear and well detailed. Fidelity is very good and once again dynamic range is quite wide.
