The second sequel to Scanners, after Scanners II: The New Order, finds Liliana Komorowska experimenting with a new mind-blowing drug. The result is a serious personality change from sweet young thing to psychopathic megalomaniac with an ability to scan through TV airwaves and sway the masses to her ruthless power trip. The only person in her way is brother Steve Parrish who returns from a sojourn in a monastery to give her a piece of his own expanding mind. Although not a patch on the classic David Cronenberg original, Canadian director Christian Duguay handles the more knockabout action with flair and wit (Komorowska's delightfully campy villain helps enormously) and covers the gore bases with everything from exploding fingers to a particularly impressive underwater cranium blast.
