The Mind’s Eye: Directed by Joe Begos. With Graham Skipper, Lauren Ashley Carter, John Speredakos, Larry Fessenden. Zack Connors and Rachel Meadows were born with incredible psychokinetic capabilities. When word of their supernatural talents gets out, they find themselves the prisoners of Michael Slovak, a deranged doctor intent on harvesting their powers. After a daring escape, they are free from his sinister institution, but the corrupt doctor will stop at nothing to track them down so that he may continue to siphon their gifts for his own use.
“Imagine if David Cronenberg had just a 100 IQ. This then is what Scanners wouldu0026#39;ve looked like. It doesnu0026#39;t suck, but itu0026#39;s not all that impressive either.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eUnlike Scanners, there is no cerebral subtext. What you see is what you get and nothing more. One thing that drove me sorta nuts watching it is that the characters will announce that some course of action is not a good idea and then proceed to do just that. They also engage in fights to the death, where they get the upper hand, but then do not finish off their opponents. Guess what happens.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe lead actress and the score are pretty good. Plus, the general storyline is interesting, the foreboding atmosphere is well maintained, and the practical gore effects are impactful. All in all, Iu0026#39;d probably rather just rewatch Scanners, but that said, you could do a lot worse than watching this homage/ knockoff/ what-have-you.”
