SCANNERS II: THE NEW ORDER

A breed of humans with dangerously powerful telepathic abilities, the scanners, are being recruited by a corrupt police commander, John Forrester, in his crusade to take over the city. Forrester first enlists the help of an evil scientist, Dr. Morse, who wants to conduct mind-control experiments on the scanners with a new drug. When the side effects render the scanners incapable, Forrester then finds David Kellum (David Hewlett, Cube, Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes), a rational scanner who, unaware of his own powers, agrees to help him. Will Kellum discover Forrester’s real motive and prevent the New Order from being established?


SCANNERS III: THE TAKEOVER

A young scanner (Liliana Komorowska, </ >Screamers) with extraordinary telepathic powers transforms into a lethal killing machine after taking one of her father’s experimental drugs. After taking over his pharmaceutical company, the deranged scanner runs amok on a killing spree and takes over a television company in her quest for world domination. As her thirst for more power grows stronger, only one man, her scanner brother, might have the power to stop her.

****No Plot Spoilers****

Ever since watching Brian De Palma's "Carrie" (Carrie) and "The Fury" (The Fury), I've been obsessed with telekinesis. The Scanners franchise also fulfilled my desire to watch people move objects with their thoughts. The original "Scanners" (Scanners) was directed by David Cronenberg who became famous for his controversial science fiction horror films starring controversial actors [e.g., "The Brood" (The Brood), with brawler hunk Oliver Reed, and "Rabid" (Rabid) with former porn star Marilyn Chambers]. "Scanners" focuses on an emotionally disturbed, homeless scanner, Cameron Vale (Stephen Lack) who meets an art gallery assistant, Kim Obrist (supermodel Jennifer O'Neill) who is also a scanner. Together, they attempt to locate an evil scanner, Darryl Revok (Michael Ironside), who wants the scanners to rule the world. During their quest, they discover the dark secret concerning the origin of scanners. Note: Scanners not only have the ability to move objects with their thoughts, but they can also read (i.e., scan) and manipulate other people's thoughts. However, many become insane because of sensory overload.

Having owned "Scanners" on DVD for years, I was naturally thrilled to learn that Shout Factory had released its first two sequels as a Blu-Ray and DVD combo pack. I saw them on VHS too many years ago in muted, full-frame formats.

4.0 out of 5 stars SCREAM FACTORY'S SCANNERS II & III September 25, 2013
By Ben30
Verified Purchase
I'm a big fan of Scanners especially the original scanners film by David cronenberg which is a classic
but Scanners II is pretty Good and Scanners III is a bit ridiculous but still Good.
any fan of Scanners knows what scanners II & III are about, they're both similar to the original

Scanners II was released in 1990 but was a Direct to video release
i don't think it was shown in many cinemas, if it was shown in some Cinemas
then it would have been a short run
Scanners III was no different, it was released in Cinemas 1 year after Scanners II
again Direct to Video after a short run playing in some cinemas.
both Scanners II and III never got a U.S. DVD release ever
both Scanners films were only released on Anchor bay DVD in the U.K. back in 2003
so both scanners films have only been available in the U.K. on Anchor bay DVD.

Until now this year, scream factory who's part of shoutfactory in L.A. California
finally got the copyright to release both films on DVD and Blu-ray for the first time ever in the U.S.
both films on DVD and blu-ray are in Widescreen format
i didn't bother watching the DVD version cause the Audio quality is only in Dolby stereo
so i just assumed the picture quality would be average anyway
i only watched the blu-ray of both films in HD surround sound
i was blown away and amazed, the picture quality looks fantastic in blu-ray
the Audio quality is even better in High Definition surround sound
scream factory really Did make an effort to enhance the picture and audio quality
this blu-ray version is better quality than the U.K. Anchor bay release for sure.

5.0 out of 5 stars Liliana Komorowska's close up babe-age in scanners 3 November 10, 2013
At a time when you couldn't get away from Whoopie Goldberg's movie wrath, this film is one of a few that could keep them from subliminally shoving Whoopie down our throats! Liliana Komorowska tears up the screen as she gives the best "scanner face" yet. We are deprived until she comes out of her shell with her scientist father's experimental scanner calm drug, doing the opposite and gives her the itch for exploding heads and world takeover! We have to forgive her because she's such a babe and she's helping us forget about whoopie! Her brother, a canadian monk living in thailand? Does not forgive her as he fights his way from Bangkok to North America against Liliana's army of NRA, kung fu scanner baddies. The camera is forced to love him as he gets a quarter of an inch away from it with the most devastating scanner face since his sister. You are counting facial veins every five minutes as they scream for their own screen credits. The sweat is pouring off their faces as each scanner competes to see which one can crack the camera lense. The brother can't even find enough time to go to the toilet because there's so many assassins looking for him and during the motorycle chase you see him desperately watching as he zooms past all the portapodies. I missed this in theaters because I thought they would sneak in a Whoopie trailer. Liliana's french accent had me from hello as I was a mesmerized puppet in her control. Unfortunately her brother's head does not explode at the end and the camera had to divorce itself from Liliana's unblemished, 90's made up, female magnetism. I don't regret getting sidetracked in this review and hope they post it. Brilliant action dominates the entire film with great stunts, special effects, chases, and cool story line.
