Cronenberg Episode 3: Scanners (1981)

Perhaps his most well-known cult classic, Scanners is when Cronenberg started really getting some attention for his films. Michael Ironside makes the film as Darryl Revok, a powerful scanner bent on world domination. As usual, we've got plenty to argue about during our conversation of this science fiction "classic." Though Scanners, spawned several sequels and there is currently talk of a 2011 remake, Movie Bonfire is sticking to the original material here. See below for a picture of our coworker that reminds us of Dr. Paul Ruth.
