Firestarter: Directed by Keith Thomas. With Zac Efron, Ryan Kiera Armstrong, Sydney Lemmon, Michael Greyeyes. A young girl tries to understand how she mysteriously gained the power to set things on fire with her mind.
I’ve still not seen the original film with Drew Barrymore, and I had only just barely been made aware of the basics of the story, so I was somewhat shocked to learn this is straight up a super hero film with pyrokinetics, telepathy, and telekensis. It’s a perfectly watchable film and I had a good time watching it, but there’s something flat about the film that just made the entire thing not work as well as it should have.
Also, they literally burn a cat to death on screen which put me off the entire thing completely.
