Charlie McGee is a young woman with the unwanted and often uncontrollable gift of pyrokinesis, lighting fires by mere thought. Charlie has been in hiding for nearly all her life from a top-secret government fringe group headed by the maniacal John Rainbird, who wants to find and use Charlie as the ultimate weapon of war. Vincent is a young private investigator unwittingly sent to look for Charlie, and evenutally tries to help her escape from Rainbird, who has formed a group of young boys from other research projects -- each with different special abilities -- in a plot to take over the world.

I really liked the whole thing, and was pleasantly surprised - I was half-expecting a sloppy horror movie without much of a plot. Not at all. Malcom McDowell is always good, here as elsewhere, and he was appropriately frightening, in that insanely calm, logical way.
Moreau was good, too, and played very nicely off the others as well. I was very pleased with the whole thing. It had enough scary stuff in it to make it fun, and it was creepy at times, and we got a little romance along with it. What more could you want?
