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?

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.

Looks like there are a few psychic teens that can be useful as government weapons. First they need to be separated from their parents. Then a little honing and voila.

The only problem is Robin's father (Kirk Douglas) would not stay dispatched and returns with a vengeance for his son.

I read reviews ahead of time and expected a pre - "Firestarter" (1984). This movie was not disappointing; however it sort of dragged in places. On the plus side was seeing all the character actors from 1978. I did not look at the reviews close enough so nearly fell off my seat when spotting Daryl Hanna.

Any way after 30+ more years of floating and bleeding films, the explosive ending did not come as much of a surprise. I sort of expected the girl, Gillian (Amy Irving) would go back to her mother and say that school was fun, then give the camera a little wink.

I did not like this and was disappointed as it though it was another movies of the same title. That side it was good thriller but the plot was a bit cheesey. We have characters come and going and the plot going from past present and then future. A nice thriller but low on plot.

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.

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...
