* RealLife/MeanCharacterNiceActor: David Cronenberg as a director, though usually not as an actor. His films are full of [[BodyHorror hideous mutations]], ColdBloodedTorture, [[FanDisservice images of depraved sexuality]], and [[YourHeadASplode exploding heads]]. In person, he's a very nice, unassuming sort of guy. Creator/MartinScorsese said he looked like a Beverly Hills plastic surgeon. This usually comes across in his cameo appearances, although he played a SerialKiller in Creator/CliveBarker's ''Film/{{NightBreed}}''.

** ''Film/{{Scanners}}'' are technically "just" {{Telepath}}s. Thing is, most telepaths in fiction ''can't'' make '''YourHeadAsplode.''' And the BigBad can overpressurize a man's veins until he fountains blood and '''''[[SpontaneousHumanCombustion bursts into flames!]]'''''
