Overview

Brian De Palma returns to the mind-blowing potential of telekinesis in the follow-up to his 1976 horror hit Carrie. While vacationing with his psychic son, Robin (Andrew Stevens), and close associate Childress (John Cassavetes), government agent Peter Sandza (Kirk Douglas) survives a terrorist attack, only to discover that it was staged by Childress so he could kidnap Robin for his own nefarious purposes. With the assistance of another psychic (William Finley) and Hester (Carrie Snodgress), an employee at the Paragon Institute for Psychic Research, Peter discovers a telekinetic Chicago high-school girl named Gillian (Amy Irving), who may be able to help him find Robin. Even though they have never met, Gillian can see Robin's memories and experiences telepathically, and she knows that he is in trouble. But Childress knows all about Gillian, too, and he is not about to let Peter's paternal quest get in the way of his plans for harnessing their psychic power.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Lucia Bozzola
After the success of Carrie, Brian De Palma finally got a substantial budget, and he used it to stage even more elaborate (and grisly) special effects than in his previous thrillers. With a panoply of devices like quick cuts and superimposition, he chillingly yet stylishly reveals what Gillian sees as she connects with Robin's mind; nevertheless, as with Carrie, he saves the most horrific and flamboyant shocks for last. Though it had the effects and a bona fide star in Kirk Douglas, The Fury's moderate success was not quite on a par with horror blockbusters The Omen (1976) or The Exorcist (1973). Still, it slickly tapped into a post-Watergate mood, as operatives with unspecified government connections are the source of evil. But the gifted kids make them pay.
