DVD & Blu-ray review: The Fury (18)
Brian De Palma Blu-ray (113mins)
Friday 01 November 2013
Brian De Palma's lurid 1978 horror doesn't lack for action: machine-gun battles in the Middle East, exploding fairground rides, exploding people, and, more crucially, powerful telepaths. The psychics in question are Robin, who has been abducted by a sinister government agency led by John Cassavetes, and Gillian (Amy Irvine), the heroine of this deranged film who (foolishly) seeks help from the Paragon Institute. The Fury benefits from a furious energy, a hammy Kirk Douglas, and De Palma's rare knack of making you care.
