The poor bastard whose head explodes in Scanners posing with his stunt doubles (1981)
Remember when Michael Myers battled Busta Rhymes in the finale of Halloween: Resurrection? I know, I know – we all want to forget, but we unfortunately need to accept and deal with it. The point is that it sucked, but the finale in David Cronenberg’s fantastic 1981 flick, Scanners, between Michael Ironside and Stephen Lack was awesome!
Sometimes you just have to resort back to the classics, and on this week’s Sunday Bloody Sunday, I’m doing just that. Yes, not much more needs to be said about the final battle between Vale (Lack) and Revok (Ironside) as they go head-to-head (get it?) in an impressive special effects-laden tour de force. Bonus points are given for Lack’s exploding eye trick and for his fire hands. Michael Ironside’s white eyes aren’t too shabby either.
