SUMMER OF SCI-FI: 2019! – www.MILANO411.com
SCANNERS is a movie that is dear to the hearts of the creative staff of MILANO411.com. No fancy CGI. Just killer scripts, 1970s fashions, and a great history lesson. Secret government experiments, computers that are HUGE, and Michael Ironside. A man that is no stranger to the sci-fi genre (V, Scanners, and Starship Troopers); and one that defined our MENSWEAR EDITORIAL. This clip celebrates our love this summer of strong women in science fiction. This DIVA shows her true powers. Take care LADIES and all those who consider themselves DIVAS. Remember, your MIND is a powerful tool or possibly weapon. Ciao from MILANO411.com.
The title of this David Cronenberg sci-fi horror film refers to a group of people who have telekinetic powers that allow them to read minds and give them the ability to make other people’s heads explode. The children of a group of women who took an experimental tranquilizer during their pregnancies, the scanners are now adults and have become outcasts from society. But Darryl (Michael Ironside) decides to create an army of scanners to take over the world. The only person who can stop him is his brother Cameron (Stephen Lack), who wants to forget that he was ever a scanner. Winner of the International Fantasy Film Award at the 1983 Fantasporto Film Festival, Scanners was followed by a pair of sequels, neither of which involved Cronenberg.
