Eyes of Laura Mars

Director: Irvin Kershner
Year Released: 1978
Rating: 0.5

A fashion photographer with telekinetic powers 'sees' murders being committed in trance-like moments but is powerless to stop them - this telekinesis I speak of must be catchy, because I figured out who the killer was five minutes into the picture (spooky!). This monumentally stupid idea was created by John Carpenter, and it should have stayed in his brain for a few more seconds before moving onto his next, hopefully better concept, because between Rene Auberjonois' scene chewing, Brad Dourif's spooked chauffeur mumbling and the hum-dinger of an ending - which defies all rational sense and psychology - this is so bad it's almost unwatchable.
