Audience Reviews for The Medusa Touch

Hogwash telepathy melodrama. Burton looks like hell and acts bored, Lee Remick looks great but her part is a waste of her time as the picture is a waste of yours.

Some great effects along the way, coupled with Richard Burton's menacing acting make this a must see.

Richard Burton's considerable charisma adds weight to this supernatural chiller, in which a psychic is able to cause catastrophes with the power of his mind. The MTV generation may find it a little slow, but fans of The Omen and The Exorcist will not be disappointed.

An underrated Sci-Fi jewel that is well directed and cast. This is a dark, powerful, haunting and intelligent psychological thriller.
