I had forgotten these images. Thanks for posting, Greg.Thing is, though, I think the reason why these images escaped my memory is because most of Scanners as a whole has escaped me by now. I've searched all around for any stirring defenses of the movie and have found zilch. It's easily one of Cronenberg's more forgettable pictures.
I just saw SCANNERS for the first time (it's currently on Netflix Instant) one of only three Cronenberg films I hadn't seen in its entirety. It really is a fun film.Lack is not the most compelling hero, but the gorgeous Jennifer O'Neill more than makes up for it looking lustrous even while forgoing any vanity and allowing her gray hair to show through. Patrick McGoohan is great as a variation on Oliver Reed's doctor from THE BROOD. And of course there's the great Michael Ironside. The film itself evokes the feeling of a Marvel Comics book come to life.
