Product Description

Brian De Palma directs this horror starring Kirk Douglas as Peter Sandza, a Secret Service agent whose son Robin (Andrew Stevens) has psychic powers. Whilst Sandza is holidaying with Robin and fellow agent Childress (John Cassavetes) they are attacked by what seems to be a gang of terrorists and Robin is kidnapped. However, when Sandza discovers that the attack was masterminded by Childress, who wants to corrupt then sell Robin's powers, he enlists the help of another psychic (Amy Irving) to track his son down - but will they be too late?

5.0 out of 5 stars Impeccable presentation - bravo Arrow... 1 Nov 2013
Format:Blu-ray
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...

By Trevor Willsmer HALL OF FAME TOP 100 REVIEWER
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Action thriller turns horror!!!!!!! 14 Jun 2006
Format:DVD
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Must see for De Palma devotees 26 Jun 2014
Format:Blu-ray
De Palma fires on all cylinders with The Fury!
What's it about:- Conspiracy thriller about kidnap of psychic youths by shadowy CIA to train as weapons and a fathers quest to rescue his son.
Pros:- I'd heard it said that if John Cassavettes thought a script was rubbish, then he would act wearing a grin throughout the movie, needless to say he grins a lot - but given the role he portrays its entirely fitting for the movie. Having Cassavettes gives the film some gravitas and class and is a perfect foil for Kirk Douglas.
The plot is quite secondary to the operatic intensity that De Palma wrings from the screenplay - utilizing split screen, slow motion and blood and gore effects to give the viewer a thrill ride.
Movie is a must see on blu-ray and has lost none of its power to shock and thrill in equal measure.
Cons:-However, there are some scenes that are rather sadistic and some misogyny which may alienate some viewers.

I wonder if old Mother Knuckles' relatives are still tied up?

5.0 out of 5 stars Great effects 30 April 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Some great effects, nicely directed, great performances. A little protracted in places because of two storylines side by side - Kirk Douglas searching for his son and Amy Irving learning about her telepathic powers. Eventually the characters stories merge, and much of the action/horrr happens in the final 20 minutes.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Fury, influential 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
