Head exploders, deadly serums, deviant doctors, radioactive dope…Horror Channel presents a MAD SCIENCE SEASON, an 80’s tinged collection of cult scientific shockers featuring the Network premieres of David Cronenberg’s SCANNERS and Stuart Gordon’s RE-ANIMATOR. Also guaranteed to get the horror sparks flying are BASKET CASE and CLASS OF NUKE ‘EM HIGH. The season jolts into action from Friday 6 Feb @ 22.50 with the Network Premiere of David Cronenberg’s hugely influential sci-fi horror SCANNERS (1981).

Synopsis: The product of an experimental tranquilizer given to them during their mother’s pregnancies, a group of people have telekinetic powers that not only allows them to read minds but gives them the ability to destroy others.  The ‘scanners’ are now adults and have become outcasts from society.  Darryl Revok (Michael Ironside) wants to create an army of scanners to take over the world and the only person who can stop him is his brother Cameron Vale (Stephen Lack), himself a powerful scanner.  Now seen as a top 50 horror classic of all time, the film also stars Jennifer O’Neill and Patrick McGoohan.

Bringing the season to an electrifying conclusion on Friday 27 Feb @ 22:50 is the Network Premiere of Stuart Gordon’s RE-ANIMATOR (1985)

Synopsis: Herbert West (Jeffery Combs) is a mad scientist with an extreme messiah complex focused on cheating the gods of death. He has discovered a serum which when injects in the brain of the recently deceased makes the dead stand up and walk. Realising Herbert's potential, his professor Dr. Hill (David Gile) is determined to get his hands on Herbert's discovery and steal credit for his work. While forcefully trying to convince Herbert to turnover his findings, Hill's head is viciously separated from his body. Herbert than decides that now is the time for the final test of his magical elixir and re-animates Hill's head and body – with hilariously shocking consequences…

Also in the season….
