“Firestarter … is a good, stylish mixture of the kind of hokey horror and science-fiction elements in which Mr. King specializes. It has a first-rate cast headed by the small, extremely self-assured Drew Barrymore (E. T.), who plays Charlie, supported by David Keith, who appears as her troubled dad, and George C. Scott, wearing a graying pony tail and one glass eye, who is the film’s manic villain. Mr. Scott is supposed to covet Charlie’s special ”power,” here called pyrokinesis, but he is such a forceful presence that he could probably teach Charlie a thing or two.” -Vincent Canby, The New York Times
