Default Scanners (1981)

such a kick ass movie, seen it for the first time and it really should be considered a classic, the exploding head scene was well worth the $4 that i paid for it

Very good flick didn't expect to see a lot of stuff I did. There was also two sequels I believe, haven't seen them though.

I understand that it's a classic. I watched it and it was ok but I didn't see what the big deal was...there were some great scenes but several great scnes don't make a great movie and i felt it dragged a bit much...3/5

I have had this DVd for like 2 years or some shit and get no mroe than 40 minutes than usually fall asleep. For some reason david Cronenberg films bore me to death, except for The FLY which is GREAT and some what The Brood, I like.

Other words he films just dont do shit for me, maybe one day i will get through it.

Not a fan of the movie really, I only watched it once, I might like it if I watch it again.

i love the first two movies but the third in the series has to be one of the worst movies i have ever seen in my life.

sure an odd one, haven't seen it in a long time. The exploding head is funny on slo-mo, seems like they had a rubber head filled with gunk and pumped it up with a compressor or something. But I'm also not much of a cronenberg fan, find his movies mostly just odd and a bit too slow for my taste. Fly was ok, but mostly because of the high "ick" factor, I think the old one with Vincent Price is actually much funnier.

Never saw any of the sequels, and probably never will~~

not cronenberg's best, but he's never done a bad movie (no, not even fast company.) i'm waiting for someone to get off their ass and give us decent DVDs for this and the brood.
