About This Show
The most indulgent filmcast on the web! Hosted by film critic Brian Salisbury and screenwriter C. Robert Cargill (Sinister, Marvel's Dr. Strange), Junkfood Cinema happily, unironically gorges on filmdom's less-than-nutritional fare! It's so good, it just HAS to be bad for you.

Hold on to your skulls, Junkions! Brian and Cargill continue through their March Madness series with David Cronenberg's Scanners. It may not be the granddaddy of psychic killer movies, but it's at least the daddy. And yet for as much as they love it, the guys come to the mind-blowing realization that Scanners is a deeply flawed film remembered more for a meme than for its story. However, the performances (namely Ironside's), effects, and unique signpost along Cronenberg's evolution as a filmmaker safeguard Scanners' reputation as a cult classic. Like the show?
