There are two movies in one here: one is a nonsensical spy/chase thriller about an ex-government agent (Kirk Douglas, the Matthew McConaughey of his era) searching for his kidnapped son (Andrew Stevens), and the other concerns a young woman (Amy Irving) who is horrified to learn that she might possess some undefined psychic ability. It's a popcorn muncher of a work, light entertainment at best, or it's a long Kirk Douglas selfie delivered especially to you. Brian DePalma directs and keeps things moving, but don't think too hard.
Viewed this film as preteen and it is good as a psychic horror with overtones of intrigue and humor. This movie is also a great travelogue of sorts for 1970s Chicago...a lot of the locations filmed have changed or now gone and thanks to Brian dePalma for capturing them. A good film overall.
More than 40 years after first seeing this Brian DePalma sci-fi, horror, drama I returned to it to see how he holds up.
Douglas overacts, Cassavetes underperforms as the villain and the movie feels like a museum piece.
For DePalma lovers the film is a must for others wait for a re-make.
The best thrilling movie ever made!
Besides a few classic De Palma shots the film drags on.
An odd and interesting film, could probably be skipped if you're getting into De Palma.
Ok Kirk Douglas movie.
Not scary anymore but a decent plot.
i found this to be very slow moving
Underrated gem that opens like a life insurance commercial and ends like Hiroshima.
