This sci-fi horror espionage thriller has a weak script and clumsy plot but some beautiful horror set pieces. As with Brian De Palma's previous film, CARRIE, the focus here is a sweet young girl (Amy Irving) with awesome telekinetic powers. She's searching for her "psychic twin" captured by a secret government agency for use as a military weapon; Kirk Douglas plays the boy's superspy father who's also looking for him. As with CARRIE, you fall in love with the girl just as the most awful things start happening to her--and, this being De Palma, those awful things involve lots and lots of blood. The movie builds its tension slowly, leisurely, and then, wham, you're hit with some of the most intense horror sequences ever put on film. De Palma's a very smart director who's not all that interested in script or plot--he's just interested in orchestrating the terror sequences for maximum effect. If you give in to the film's sometimes quirky rhythms and oddball attempts at humor, it's quite a ride.

Long maligned as an Alfred Hitchcock rip-off, Brian de Palma can rest on his laurels, having given us such visually stunning examples of horrific ballet. In "The Fury" there are so many scenes of intense but beautiful violence that you wonder where the imagery originated. While DePalma has often said he was influenced by the masterful Hithcock, he doesn't rip him off; he accentuates the master with his visually stunning style.
The slomo and quiet scene in which Carrie Snodgress meets an untimely fate is mesmerizing, even knowing what the ultimate outcome is; likewise the scenes where Amy Irving "sees" events that have or will happen. DePalma's camera swerves and sizzles. The lovely Fiona Lewis' demise is horrifically fascinating in its cruelty. (No, I'm not sadistic). The cast: isn't it fun to see scruffy Dennis Franz in one of his first roles as the gum-chewing, love my car cop? And Kirk Douglas, no longer a youngster, still looked amazingly fit and masculine in a role he would never get to play in today's youthful standards. Amy Irving is gorgeous and quite a good young actress; Andrew Stevens is handsome and effectively icy; Charles Durning and Carol Rossen appropriately vile; John Cassavettes is a devilish villain; and the almost forgotten Carrie Snodgress is a delight. Writer John Farris wrote the book which he adapted for the screen, and did a fine job. Too bad he waited so long for sequels---they probably won't get filmed, but they should. THE FURY is one of DePalma's best.

"The Fury" is another Brian DePalma flick dealing with telekinetic abilties. This time it's Amy Irving (from Carrie) as the girl with the amazing mental powers. She's awesome! Her struggle to understand and deal with her state is portrayed brilliantly. Meanwhile, Kirk Douglas is a government agent, betrayed by his own partner (John Cassavetes) who tries to assassinate Douglas. He escapes death and goes underground. His son (who also has telekinetic abilities) is taken by the government to be used as a weapon. Douglas goes on a hunt for his son (Andrew Stevens), stopping at nothing to get him back from Cassavetes and the dark agency he represents. Eventually, Kirk Douglas' character meets up with Amy Irving; and gets her to help him. Lots of great DePalma touches throughout! Of course, everyone knows about the fantastic "explosion" finale. "The Fury" would be a cool part of a triple feature with "Carrie" and "Scanners"! Watch for Dennis Franz in a funny role as a cop. John Williams does the music, so how can you lose? ...

This is a very well done movie for the time that it was filmed. We didn't have the superlative special effects of ILM to enhance this movie so we have to depend on the acting ability of the cast. Kirk Douglas, a young Amy Irving, Charles Durning, Carrie Snodgress, John Casssavetes and of course Andrew Stevens. The cast alone should entice you to see this one. Without going into too much of the plot, yes a horror/thriller movie can have a plot. Kirk Douglas has been searching for his son played by Andrew Stevens, in order to get him back from a nasty bunch of folks at a government run facility for especially gifted children with extraordinary mental abilities. Lots of action, suspense filled, a joy to watch Andrew and Amy when they both must have been just out of their teens. Portions of this movie, especially at the end are not for children or preteens, if you don't want them up all night. But for the true horror/suspense fanatic this movie is right up your alley. Buy it and you will not be sorry you did!!!

The Fury is a great film that takes some elments from other films such as Carrie, and spins a totally different tale of violence and psychic powers. This was De Palma's first blockbuster movie- even if it didn't do as well as they thought at the box office. It's about a teenage boy named Robin who is kidnapped after a murder attempt at his father. The father (played by the magnificent Kirk Douglas) survives, and is still trying to find his son after 11 months. But the boy has psychic powers- which is the reason they want him in the first place. These "powers" psychically link him to a girl named Gillian (Carrie's Amy Irving), who tries desperately to help the father locate his son in an attempt to meet him.
But the experiments that the people who kidnapped him make him under-go have a strange effect on Robin- they turn him into a destructive beast who will stop at nothing to get his own way. Gillian also has destructive powers- if she touches someone at a certain moment, they will bleed, some a little, some a lot. And she can either use these for good, or for evil...
The father and Gillian search for Robin, and when they find him, he turns out to be a shadow of his former self. One who was once a good, fun-loving teen has turned into a monster that will kill to get what he wants...
While not as good as Carrie, it is a well done thriller by a master of suspense, Brian De Palma. The film has shocking moments that will make your mouth gape open, so be prepared. This is, all in all, a scary yet fun film.
Also recommended films by De Palma: SISTERS, PHANTOM OF THE PARADISE, CARRIE, DRESSED TO KILL, BLOW OUT, BODY DOUBLE, and RAISING CAIN.
