I'm actually surprised with how much they stuck to the story line in this novel adaption. It was also comical when ever Charlie (Barrymore) or her father used their abilities. You could 'see' the effects from it ie; Charlie's hair blowing around and the father having to hold the side of his head. Quite amusing it was, but that's what you get for a 1980's movie.

Stephen King's spine-tingling tome is the inspiration for this 1980s thriller starring Drew Barrymore as Charlie, an 8-year-old girl with a dubious gift: the ability to ignite fires with just a glance.

" Atmospheric score by Tangerine Dream is what hits you first before reading the cast list which is full of Academy Award Winners which is unusual to see for a B-movie Stephen King adaptation about a girl with supernatural powers. It is also a film full of great pyro-effects with David Keith and Drew Barrymore selling the film as father-daughter and George C. Scott doing a hateful character as the psychopathic hired gun out to kill them. "

"Katsottu: 18.4.2017, nauhoitus Melko viihdyttävää menoa sisältävä, vähän vähemmälle huomiolle jäänyt Stephen King-filmatisointi 80-luvulta. Tämän ohjannut Mark L. Lester loi myöhemmin toiminnalliset mestariteokset Showdown in Little Tokyo ja Commando. "
