"Scanners" (1981)

This is one of the those films that should be re-made for the right reasons. David Cronenbergs script and direction are great but the film suffers from a low budget and the casting of the DULL Stephen Lack as the hero.

I'd enjoy a good remake of this one myself. Just keep the special effects guys locked in a cooler until it's in the can on the way to the theaters. I realize there must be FX, but I wouldn't want any more than the original film contained.

Its one of those stories which has such a salient and accessible central concept that its very hard to write something anything in the same realm, without infringing on its turf
