Have you seen THE FURY from 1978?
I remember watching back in the day. It was on SHOWTIME or some such and I had to see it. I looked cool and, I must admit, I thought Amy Irving was gorgeous. :) De Palma? ::shrug::: Director? And I saw Kirk Douglas in all my Mom's old bible movies, right? But....Amy....she was CUTE.
Two years after CARRIE, we have another mind control, telekinesis story with X-FILES undertones. Amy and Andrew Stevens have mind powers. They can make things happen. And certain people want that kind of power on their side. Douglas plays the Father of the boy (Stevens) and John Cassavetes plays another seeking these mind power folks out.
All in all, it's grand, 70s horror fair - biting CARRIE's style here and there, but...you know...it's friggin De Palma. CARRIE was his, too. :) It's a fun flick if you can find it. NETFLIX has the disks.
Funny - I wonder when they'll remake this one. Might be cool to see, actually.
