The 1978 Brian De Palma movie:

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0077588/

Here's a very good review:

and I completely agree with the first paragraph. In fact, this is one of my favorite De Palmas and it's sad to see it in a such a hit and miss transfer on the Fox disc. Let's hope someone over there does something about it. This is one title I wouldn't mind double-dipping.

Me too. I always loved this film. Cassavetes was so good in it and I loved the antagonistic relationship between him and Kirk Douglas' character. Very well played.

For some reason I always felt that The Fury would make a good double bill with Scanners.

I need to rewatch this film. On first viewing I found it to be fun but pretty inconsistant. Cassavetes is good however, but Kirk Douglas didn't do anything for me.
