Don't lose your head - Scanners (1981)
I can't help thinking that if it had a bigger budget, or indeed if it was remade (wash my mouth out), it would have more of a Fourth Kind feel to the face distortions that go on during the scanning process. Although it works amazingly well without that CGI and the other effects are quite magnificent. The real horror here is the control they could have on your mind and the unbelievably devastating effects that that can have on your brain, and indeed your head. And that's something that no migraine medication can reverse.
