Scanners Limited Edition SteelBook

Posted February 15, 2013 05:13 PM by Webmaster

Second Sight FilmsIndependent British distributors Second Sight Films will release director David Cronenberg's Scanners (1981) as a Limited Edition SteelBook on April 8th. The film stars Jennifer O'Neill, Stephen Lack, Patrick McGoohan, Michael Ironside, and Lawrence Dane.

Controversial Canadian 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.

Special Features:
  • "My Art Keeps Me Sane" Interview with star Stephen Lack
  • "The Eye Of Scanners" Interview with cinematographer Mark Irwin
  • "The Chaos Of Scanners" Interview with executive producer Pierre David
  • "Exploding Brains & Popping Veins" Interview with make-up effects artist Stephan Dupuis
  • "Bad Guy Dane" - Interview with actor Lawrence Dane

While I would be very interested in a Criterion release of this film, that SB's got me all week in the knees.

The 2nd german blu-ray from Subkulur is top-notch regarding a/v quality. Flawless encoding, no DNR, pcm 24bit audio (original mix) and Region ABC (no PAL/50i content). Find captures here at forums or @ caps-o-holic.
An Interview with Stephan Lack (where he also talks about his art, called "The Ephemerol Diaries") plus an isolated m&e track, extensive slideshows and some trailers are included. Seems likes the UK release does not duplicate any of the features but adds new ones. I don't think it can get any better regarding AV quality and i actually prefer the digi of the german LE (standard edition comes in keep case) over the steelbook. Might pick up the UK version when a standard edition in keep case is released just for the extras.

Cant say I love the cover (even if it is a theatrical poster). Hopefully Criterion goes along with something more like this http://www.joblo.com/posters/images/full/1981-scanners-poster2.jpg
