Title from container.

Originally released as a motion picture in 1981.

Special features: New, restored 2K digital film transfer ; The "Scanners" way, a new documentary on the film's special effects, featuring interviews with Cronenberg's collaborators ; Mental saboteur, a new interview with actor Michael Ironside ; The Ephemerol diaries, a 2012 interview with actor and artist Stephen Lack ; excerpt from a 1981 interview with Cronenberg on the CBC's The Bob McLean show ; new, restored 2K digital transfer of Stereo (1969), Cronenberg's first feature film ; trailer and radio spots.

After a man with extraordinary--and frighteningly destructive--telepathic abilities is nabbed by agents from a mysterious rogue corporation, he discovers he is far from the only possessor of such strange powers, and that some of the other "scanners" have their minds set on world domination, while others are trying to stop them.
