I'm quite worried about the chronic lack of reviews for this absolute classic film. To me, this is very powerful and is, in some cases, deeply disturbing and I feel that it has somewhat been neglected by people who thrive on films packed with horror, suspense and tension - the Medusa Touch has it all. OK, there are not many extras on the DVD but the film itself it very well crafted and Richard Burton is excellent as the novelist John Morlar, who is brutally assaulted at the beginning of the film by an unknown attacker and left for dead. The filom is an account of the later police investigation, as it's built up on flashbacks of Morlars past visits to his therapist Zonfeld (Lee Remick). He claimed he has 'a gift for disaster' after finding out at an early age he has the power to kill people through unconcious telekinesis. Although troubled by his powers, he uses them nevertheless against people who annoy him or get in his way. In hospital however after the attack, his brain is struggling for survival despite a critically slow pulse level - his is a mind determined not to die. It is only until they realise the reason why that the film really unfolds and the 'edge of your seat suspense' is really brought about in a fashion rarely seen in new modern-day films. This film is brilliant and I hope that by writing these words I will actually encourage more people to watch what I deem to be an utter classic.
