The Fury is a thriller film from the year 1978. It is based on a novel written by John Farris and was directed by Brian De Palma.

The film follows Peter Sandza (Kirk Douglas), whose friend Ben Childress — who works for a shady, unnamed government intelligence — arranges a fake terrorist attack to kill him and during the chaos kidnaps his son, Robin, intending to put his tremendous psychic powers to good use in the Cold War.

Determined to silence Peter, Ben and his cronies are constantly hindering the process. Meanwhile, the experiments they've forced Robin to undergo have made him dangerously violent...
