Thanks to everyone who entered our recent competition to win a Scanners 3-disc DVD boxset with extras, courtesy of those good old folk at Anchor Bay UK.
Lots of entries, but unfortunately there can only be one winner, and using our sophisticated and patented techniques of selecting competition winners (well, we picked a name at random) we can now tell you the winner is:
Congratulations Jane, we will be e-mailing you later today to find out your address, and as soon as we have that we will get the DVDs out to you as soon as we can.
If you weren't a winner this time, then try entering our new competition where you can win one of ten goodie bags from Rob Zombie's up-coming The Devil's Rejects, including a shoulder bag, t-shirt, baseball cap, two shot glasses and (bizarrely) a tube of fake blood.
The 3-disc Scanners boxset was released in the UK on July 18th. Featuring Scanners, the 1981 David Cronenberg original and the two sequels Scanners II: The New Order ('91) and Scanners III: The Takeover ('92) are all presented in 16x9-enhanced 1.85:1 widescreen with DTS, 5.1 and 2.0 audio tracks. All three films will be accompanied by trailers, stills, biographies and film notes.
Each film is also accompanied by a short featurette, presented by horror critic and writer Alan Jones (worth seeing for Alan's head explosion at the end of the Scanners extra!) and made by Nucleus Films with producer Marc Morris and director Jake Evil Aliens West. The original Scanners also comes with a David Cronenberg documentary.
1st Nov 04 Above all though, it is the relationship between John and Laura Baxter which is the film’s central focus throughout, and the gradual disintegration of their relationship amidst a haze of grief.

23rd Mar 04 Forget the Ed Gein movie – this is where its at. Deranged is darkly hilarious but also deeply disturbing account of the nefarious activities of the same person, but is executed with much more skill than the Ed Gein movie.
