Product Description

Brian De Palma followed the huge success of Carrie with another slice of telekinetic horror, upping the ante by featuring more than one psychic.

John Cassavetes gives his most sinister performance since Rosemary s Baby as a man who kidnaps the telepathic son of his colleague (Kirk Douglas), aiming to turn him and similarly gifted individuals into human weapons. Meanwhile, Gillian (Amy Irving), is worried enough about the destructive potential of her own powers to agree to be institutionalised - but is the Paragon Institute all that it s cracked up to be? .

De Palma pulls out all the stops with some spectacular set-pieces (including one that will put viewers off fairground rides for life), before a spectacularly explosive climax that unforgettably demonstrates why Gillian is so afraid of her powers. She can trigger nosebleeds without any effort, so how much damage can she do when she s actually trying to hurt someone? .

Format: Blu-ray
Brian de Palma’s first big-budget film for a major studio, The Fury is at times another triumph of Kirk Douglas’ ego over promising material. Some sloppy storytelling doesn’t help, but any structural problems are easily forgotten thanks to Kirk’s tendency to take off as many clothes as he can as often as he can or to ham it up with demented glee when such overwrought material would probably be better served by something a bit more subdued. Inbetween outbursts there’s an intriguing mixture of conspiracy thriller, science fiction and horror as Douglas is left for dead by duplicitous partner John Cassavettes in a faked terrorist attack so he can spirit away Douglas’ son Andrew Stevens, whose psychic powers he wants to harness as a weapon. Naturally an Alpha Male like Kirk isn’t going to take this lying down and, evading Cassavettes’ killers, teams up with Amy Irving’s tormented fledgling psychic whose very touch can reopen every old wound you’ve ever had to track down the boy. But after a year of being alternately overindulged and pumped full of drugs, he’s not the all-American boy he once was…

As much a hybrid of styles as of genres, it’s a mixture of the flat and the atmospheric. There’s some sloppy storytelling and sequences shot so flatly they almost look like TV movies before the film kicks into life with a bravura setpiece like Irving’s slow motion escape from the psychic research centre that’s really a hothouse for potential human weapons or the grand guignol finale and its show-stopping epilogue.

Don't expect hi-def wonders from this solid transfer that faithfully captures the look of this interesting follow up to "Carrie" which would have benefitted from better plot development, more visual bravura (the fairground sequence is regarded by most critics as botched) and Kirk Douglas keeping his clothes on! (That man's fascination with taking his clothes off is worrying - see the Sci-fi movie "Saturn 13" if you don't believe me.) Yes "The Fury" has some good elements and in general excellent performances, but its strange mix of comedy, action and ultimate horror, rather jars. With neither the economy of the classic "Carrie" nor the operatic spectacle of "Dressed to Kill", "Last Embrace" or "Obsession" - "The Fury" is a curate's egg - good in parts but far from totally satisfying meal.

Arrow's brand new Blu-ray restoration and transfer of The Fury - from the camera negative - is impeccable. The soundtrack, featuring a wonderful John Williams score, is also handsomely presented. All this wedded to a clutch of genuinely interesting and informative supplemental features means that this is simply the best home video presentation of Brian De Palma's thriller to be found anywhere in the world - fans should not hesitate to buy. Bravo Arrow...

What starts off as a very run of the mill action thriller, becomes quite an original blood thirsty horror. Kirk Douglas is in fine form, portraying humour (see the scene with grannie in the appartment), grit, emotion, and pure anger. If only the rest of the cast (inc Andrew Stevens and Carrie Snodgress) showed the same passion.

Well worth watching, very unique, and grabs your attention within the first two minutes. Might not be the best film ever made, but at 5/6 pounds, well worth buying, as it will give you 2 hours of edge of your seat thrills. Forget his son, give the true Mr Douglas a go.

Have been a fan of this underrated film from one of my favorite directors Brian De Palma since it first came out in 1978. Have owned many versions on various home video formats and was hesitant on purchasing yet another version. Fox has not treated this film with respect when it comes to home video. After reading excellent reviews of Arrow's complete restoration, I can now see THE FURY with a whole new set of eyes! Wow!! This is one fantastic transfer that Arrow has given us (even the very expensive Twilight Media blu ray in the states is plagued with problems) of this underrated classic. This has got to be the best this film has (or ever) looked. Makes me glad to have a region free blu ray player (region B disc) so I can enjoy yet another fine blu ray Arrow has given us fans. Thank you Arrow for treating this little film with the respect it deserves.

I was really disappointed with the picture quality of the dvd, its the worst I've seen for quite some time. I have this film on video tape which I recorded from TV about 15 years ago and the picture beats the dvd hands down. It did distract me slightly from enjoying a film which has been a favourite since childhood. Would probably give the film itself 4 stars or even more. The picture quality deserves no higher than a 2.

4 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Nelson Viper on 17 April 2012
Format: DVD
Special government operative Peter Zandza, Kirk Douglas, attempts to rescue his telekinetic son, Robin, Andrew Stevens. from a sinister government agency run by Ben Childress, John Cassavetes. Along the way he is aided by Hester, Carrie Snodgress (the subject of a Neil Young song called Barstool Blues) and another telekinetic teen, Gillian, played by Amy Irving from Carrie.

Based on a novel by John Farris, The Fury marked Brian DePalma's second foray into the world of telekinetic teens, but is more of a conspiracy thriller with pseudo-scientific/supernatural overtones than a horror film. For a movie that was sometimes seen as DePalma's blatant attempt to cash on the the success of his breakthrough hit. Carrie, The Fury proved to be surprisingly durable. Its influence can be felt in The X Files and ironically Stephen King's own Firestarter. Cassavetes' spectacular explosive death also predates David Cronenberg's, thematically and visually similar, Scanners by three years.

The Arrow Blu Ray of this underrated classic is a vast improvement on the old DVD
