Scanners Blu-ray in April

image

SCANNERS, one of the most iconic horror films of the eighties from legendary director David Cronenberg (Cosmopolis, A History of Violence, The Fly), comes to Blu-ray for the first time in a highly collectable limited edition steelbook thanks to Second Sight Films.

This cult classic horror comes to Blu-ray as a limited edition steelbook along with a DVD release on 8 April 2013 complete with a slew of brilliant new special features including:

• MY ART KEEPS ME SANE – Interview with star Stephen Lack
• THE EYE OF SCANNERS – Interview with cinematographer Mark Irwin
• THE CHAOS OF SCANNERS – Interview with executive producer Pierre David
• EXPLOPING BRAINS & POPPING VEINS – Interview with makeup effects artist Stephen Dupuis
• BAD GUY DANE – Interview with actor Lawrence Dane

Scanners II: The New Order and Scanners III: The Takeover will also be released for the first time on Blu-ray only as single releases on 8 April 2013.

UPDATE: Despite initial reports that each of these releases would be region-free, Second Sight have confirmed via their Facebook page that this will not be the case...

"SCANNERS REGION CODE UPDATE. We regret to announce that the release of the three Scanners films will now be Region B and not Region Free. We sincerely apologise for this but unfortunately a contractual issue has arisen at the 11th hour which means we are no longer in a position to proceed with a Region Free release as originally intended. We are very sorry indeed for the inconvenience as we know people will have ordered already on this basis and may now need to cancel but unfortunately the coding is something we must now adhere to with this release, as on the majority of releases. Once again apologies, we're extremely disappointed to have to write this post."
