DAVID CRONENBERG’S STYLIZED NIGHTMARE IS THE BEST X-MEN MOVIE YOU’LL EVER SEE.
Made between THE BROOD and VIDEODROME, SCANNERS finds filmmaker David Cronenberg at an aesthetic peak.

This gruesome and stylized film was Cronenberg’s breakout hit in the U.S., and it solidified his trademark melding of the visceral and the cerebral.
