The Fury (1978)

3 1/2 Stars (out of 4)

Mind Over Matter

By Jeffrey M. Anderson

A follow up to Brian De Palma's Carrie, this more streamlined thriller about another telekinetic girl (Amy Irving) has few supporters, but it revealed further development in De Palma's storytelling skills. Father Kirk Douglas and son Andrew Stevens find their vacation interrupted when gun-slinging bad guys attempt to kidnap the telekinetic son. Irving plays the one person in the world who might help distraught Douglas find him again. John Cassavetes gets a great role as the head baddie. As with Carrie, De Palma saves the real pyrotechnics until the final curtain, and it's worth the wait.
