Medusa Touch (The) [BLU-RAY]
Directed by Jack Gold from a script by Oscar winner John Briley, The Medusa Touch is a star-studded, fast-paced thriller with a spectacular, spine-chilling climax, and stars Richard Burton in what author and critic Kim Newman calls his "best screen work of the 1970s". The film is featured here in a High Definition transfer made from original film elements in its as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratio.
John Morlar, a well-known novelist, is savagely attacked in his London flat. Barely alive, he is taken to hospital, and Brunel, a French detective currently based in the capital, is assigned to the case. His investigations lead him to Morlar's psychiatrist, who discloses that her patient is obsessed: Morlar feels he bears an awesome telekinetic power – the capacity to "will" destruction and death by making airplanes crash and buildings crumble, start raging fires and unleash mighty floods. Preposterous though it seems, Morlar's power is sickeningly real – he is able to wreak havoc at will and seemingly can't be stopped...
