The siblings: Cameron Vale (Stephen Lack) and Darryl Revok (Michael Ironside)
What puts them at odds? Let’s just say they have very different ideas on how to use their incredible telepathic powers.
Everyone remembers the exploding head bit – it’s one of the most iconic horror scenes in cinema history – but the relationship between Vale and Revok goes deeper than that. After all, the former learns that he’s actually the latter’s brother and that their powers are the result of side effects from a drug supplied to pregnant in a dastardly plot to round up and use “Scanners” as security officers. Revok plans to take over the world with an army of Scanners; Vale is understandably pretty iffy about it all. A telepathic duel commences and the outcome, we suppose, sees the brothers united. In a sense.
