The Civil Gore Podcast


Mar 29, 2021

This week we take a look at another classic that somehow slipped under Tim's radar! It's David Cronenberg's film of psychic warfare, SCANNERS (1981)!

In our FIRST CHOP, Tim witnesses the horrors of THE RESONATOR: MISKATONIC U and the utter ridiculousness of Netflix oddity DEADLY ILLUSIONS! Brian veers away from horror with a discussion of JUSTICE LEAGUE: THE SNYDER CUT! Then we both talk about the rumored UNIVERSAL HALLOWEEN HORROR NIGHTS houses and give a sneak preview of Shudder's CREEPSHOW SEASON 2!

We'll then dive into SCANNERS! While not generally considered one of Cronenberg's best films, it has gained a cult following due to its interesting premise and one particularly explosive special effects sequence! 

And of course we'll have our beer pairing, TRIPLE THREAT TRIVIA, and a listener question that sparks a great discussion about some films you might not expect!
