'Lucret put criminals back on the street.

Now he doesn't.'

You know... when my parents

brought me to this country,

they were looking for freedom, for security

and a chance for a better life.

All of this is now in danger.

If we are going to save the society,

we're gonna have to cure crime.

'We'll need new

and more powerful medicines.

'We'll need surgical procedures,

like you see here tonight.

'We need an entire new order in our society,

a coalition of political figures,

law-enforcement officers

and honest citizens.'

Good morning, Louise.


Who do you think you are, talking to

the press without my authorization?

- I apologize.

- Apologize to the Mayor.

There was smoke coming

out of her ears all morning

over that line of yours

about flaccid leadership.

What's this about this new order of yours?

It's just rhetoric, Chief.

The only new order around here is when

I investigate your so-called special unit.

Have a nice day, sir.

- How's everything?

- Not good.

Elaine, one of our female scanners,

just died. We're losing too many too fast.

The only functional scanners

we have left are Feck, Gruner and Drak.

I wouldn't call that functional.

He's got tremendous command of

his powers. He could bounce back.

He's a psychopath.

What we need is a clean scanner.

A virgin mind.

- Who is it?

- It's David.

Hi there. I was just about

to get dinner ready.



What's in the blanket?

- Oh, my God.

- He's all right. He's completely cured.

Hi there.

I told you, I have a way with animals.

- He's adorable.

- He's yours.


He seems to think so.

What are you going to call him?

- Fred?

- Uh-uh.

Trooper... cos he made it. He survived.

So... when's dinner going to be ready?

As soon as I get some pesto sauce.

Thanks. Come again.


- Want anything from downstairs?

- No, I'm OK.

And I need some milk and water.


Hang on, I need some milk.

- Sorry.

- What?

What kind of sicko would stick

strychnine in kids' milk?

- I hope they catch the bastard.

- Mm-hm.

Everybody freeze. Nobody move.

All you've got now!

Down! You, too, b*tch!


- Quiet!

- You bastard!

You drop it or I'll decorate

the place with her brains.

- We're out of here, man. We're out of here.

- Let her go.


- What kind of crazy...

- David!

You tell me.

A beautiful, beautiful scanner.

I want him.

Excuse me.

You can see her now,

but just for five minutes.

- She's had a concussion.

- Thanks.


What happened?

It's all right. You're OK.

What about you?

I'm fine.

But in the store...

- What happened to that man?

- I don't know.

Yes, you do.

Ever since I was a little kid,

David Cronenberg

David Paul Cronenberg, CC OOnt FRSC (born March 15, 1943) is a Canadian filmmaker, actor and author.
