Scanners II features a weak script, poor acting and middling effects; Scanners III contains an even worse script, even worse acting and even worse effects.

Extremely silly, but good for a few laughs.

Audience Reviews for Scanners III: The Takeover (Scanner Force)

such a bizarre film that focuses on a drug that makes the main character into a crazy person. The main problem is the main protagonist is rarely shown compared to the enemy. Its almost unbelievable how much time is spent on the good person of the film. This makes it kind of funny and/or interesting.

(**): Thumbs Down This one is slightly better than part 2 because it has a sense of dark humor to it (and some unintentionally hilarious moments too.). Still, not as good as the first film!


This third installment is distant from David Cronenberg's original vision. Dull.
