A rarely seen conspiracy horror fantasy thriller B movie directed by Tobe Hooper, in some ways, it was his last decent picture until "The Toolbox Murders" remake. The movies does have an unique premise, Hooper was probably inspired by the book or the movie "Firestarter". But it is Brad Dourif's intense performance makes this strange, sometimes odd film highly watchable. You know, when you watch a "Tobe Hooper" movie, it is more style than subtance and Hooper has a bizarre style (and outragerous sense of humour) to his movies are not always coherent. Most of the story makes sense in this one but the film needed an stronger conclusion, however. I do like Dourif's performance in this, playing normal guy (Which it is rare for him) until his discover his true identity and his power. Watch for director Hooper in a quick cameo and John Landis in a funny cameo. But it is certainly different from Hooper's style, although it does have his oddities. Maybe because this one has more of a story, especially early on. Well made, forgotten B movie. Don't miss it.
