Scanners III: The Takeover
Carrying on from David Cronenberg's original sci-fi cult-classic, Scanners III: The Takeover takes a twisted mind-trip into a startling world of power-plays and telepathic manipulation. Helena Monet, a sultry young 'scanner' gifted with extraordinary telepathic powers, falls to the temptations of evil in an experimental drug-induced rage, transforming into a murderous megalomaniac in the process - killing innocent citizens without warning. Seizing control of her father's pharmaceutical company, Helen sets her sights on the media, taking over a television network, through which she can control or destroy anyone who opposes her. Fresh from an enlightening spell in a Thai Monastery Helen's brother Alex learns of his sister's darstardly ways. The only 'scanner' with the power and the know-how to rise against his sister and bring an end to her violent tyranny, Alex prepares for a telepathic battle of wits, representing the ultimate sibling rivalry.
