  • Critic Reviews of "Scanners"

    Chicago Reader
    June 05, 2007

    Like Tod Browning, Cronenberg doesn't have the stylistic resources to match the forcefulness of his ideas, but his movies remain in the mind for the pull of their private obsessions.

    Variety
    June 05, 2007

    All this should give fans of David Cronenberg's previous pix their money's worth, although lack of any rooting interest vitiates any possible suspense and highly elegant visual style works against much shock value.

    Time Out
    June 24, 2006

    Part conspiracy thriller, part political tract, it is Cronenberg's most coherent movie to date, drawing a dark (but bland) world in which corporate executives engineer human conception to produce ever more powerful mental samurai.

    Chicago Sun-Times
    October 23, 2004

    Scanners is so lockstep that we are basically reduced to watching the special effects, which are good but curiously abstract, because we don't much care about the people they're happening around.

    New York Times
    August 30, 2004

    The quality of the film's inventiveness is not always of the first order, which is too bad because Mr. Cronenberg does seem to be a director-writer of some style.

    Cronenberg's deadpan techno-thriller lampoon

    Q Network Film Desk
    August 20, 2014

    an intriguing and (by Cronenberg's standards, at least) fun movie

    Movie Metropolis
    August 03, 2014

    Cronenberg is so great at juxtaposing the surreal with the mundane to generate both creeps and (nervous) laughter.

    The Dissolve
    July 14, 2014

    The generous selection of bonus features includes vintage elements, like a trailer made up almost entirely of the exploding-head scene, a handful of radio spots, and a 1981 talk-show appearance in which Cronenberg discusses his work up to that point.

    Film Comment Magazine
    July 07, 2014

    Scanners consolidates the ruling problematic of the Cronenberg project from the sex slugs of Shivers to the financial abstractions of Cosmopolis: what are the effects of signals on an organism?

    Reel Film Reviews
    January 22, 2014

    Scanners, for the most part, is unable to distinguish itself from other similarly-themed horror thrillers...

    TV Guide

    Ironside is fantastic as the lethal Revok, helping make this a popular cult favorite.
