Andrew and Vicky McGee met while earning money as guinea pigs for an experiment at college. The experiment was shrouded in suspicion and mystery, and seemed to be related to psychic abilities. The two were married and had a daughter Charile, who has the ability to start fires by merely thinking about it. Naturally, the government takes a great interest in Charlie, and operatives from the secret department known as “The Shop” want to quarrantine and study her

Hell hath no fury, like a Pyrokinetic being held against her will.

Drew Barrymore is pretty darned good as “Charlie”, in fact, a fine acting job by everyone involved. The special effects were well enough for 1984. And my gawd, George C Scott is creepy as hell as he tries to win over Charlie’s friendship and get her to cooperate in The Shop’s experiments.

There are a few scenes that may scare young kids, but a fine Sci-Horror.
