Main cast: Jennifer O Neil, Stephen Lack, Patrick McGoohan, Lawrence Dane
Synopsis: Welcome to David Cronenbergs dark, futuristic world of scanners, a mind-bending blend of horror and sci-fi, where a race of mutant humans, gifted from birth with telepathic powers, wreak havoc on an unsuspecting public. Darryl Revok (Michael Ironside) is a rogue scanner of unparalleled power with an insatiable thirst for control. Leader of an underground association, Revok wages war against the normals to claim his prize of world domination - his telekinesis a passive-aggressive weapon of the most dangerous and deadly kind. Self-induced empath Cameron Vale (Stephen Lack) is on the verge of insanity, struggling to cope with the powers that define his existence. With his propinquity to the subject, Vale is recruited by Dr Paul Ruth (Patrick Mcgoohan) and tasked to track Revok down before any more damage is done. With the uncanny ability to read minds and lock into the human nervous system, Revok sets out to prove himself a formidable exponent - literally blowing peoples minds in the process.
