SCANNERS II: THE NEW ORDER (1990 CANADA) D: CHRISTIAN DUGUAY W: B.J. NELSON P: PIERRE DAVID/ RENE MALO
Cronenberg`s original was a surprise hit, so sequels followed. David Hewlett (later in CUBE) is a nice guy scanner (unaware of his powers) who is used by a Police Chief villain who is trying to create a "new order" of psychic law enforcement. There`s a psycho scanner and an institute full of reject junkie scanners. There are some exploding head scenes also. With David Francis, Tom Butler, Russell Yuen, Jason Cavalier, Tyrone Benskin, Richard Zerman and Dorothee Berryman. It`s not a bad sequel (filmed back-to-back with Part 3). Apparently there are many different versions around. This review refers to a 104 min. Japanese video.
