The Fury (1978)
119 min.
Directed by Brian De Palma.
With Kirk Douglas, John Cassavetes, Carrie Snodgress, Amy Irving, Andrew Stevens, Fiona Lewis, Charles Durning, Carol Rosson.
Brian De Palma's terrific follow-up to Carrie (1976) is another film about telekinesis - and another classic.

Psychic powerbomb Stevens is kidnapped by an intelligence agency and whisked away to a hi-tech institute for gifted students.

His dad Douglas must rescue his son from the corrupt, self-serving baddies who will destroy the poor boy, and he finds a worthy ally in fellow psychic Irving.

Good, lovingly done sequences (just check out the gorgeous technique De Palma exhibits with Snodgress' death) support this imaginative thriller.

And check out that outrageous and unforgettable ending!
