Twilight Time release of The Fury. Now sold out from Twilight Time which makes this RARE!
Brian De Palma's complicated horror story from 1978 never did come together correctly, but it still has pockets of real inspiration as only the director (Carrie, Mission: Impossible) could conceive. Andrew Stevens and Amy Irving play teens with telekinetic powers that intelligence agencies want to harness, and Kirk Douglas stands between his kids and their nefarious exploiters. The film bogs down during Douglas's guilt-ridden, booze-fueled quest to find his son, but De Palma's elaborate, sometimes operatic violence and action sequences are genuinely mesmerizing. The final scene involving just desserts for the film's villain is a big surprise. --Tom Keogh --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
