The Medusa Touch (1978)

Director: Jack Gold. Cast: Richard Burton, Lino Ventura, Lee Remick, Derek Jacobi. 115 min. Rated PG. UK/France. Horror.

A blast from the past. I remember seeing this as a kid - a typical 70s horror movie concerned with devils and evil eyes and telekinesis, with three great British, French-Italian and American stars of the time (all three deceased a few years later) ... and tons of fun. On a revisit, amazing to note how the horror genre was obsessed with religion and nuclear power at the time, and how the crude special effects of a pre-9/11 toy plane crashing into the skyscraper of a toy city, never bothered us one bit. How "easy" watching movies used to be.
