“Drew Barrymore did coke, started fires… things went awry.” – Carnage’s five second summaries
Charlie McGee is just a sweet, sensitive little girl with a tragic past at the tender age of six, but with a loving father who helps her learn to control her growing pyrokinetic abilities…and then the government agency, the Department of Scientific Intelligence, that gave her parents their own psy abilities comes for her.
Two creeps with the department, Captain Hollister and Agent John Rainbird (played by a white actor) are after Charlie and her father for a year after the department killed Charlie’s mother when they couldn’t get to her.
Eventually, the department catches up with them and takes them both to “the shop” where they study psy abilities. Her father is held there also, but they are largely interested in Charlie (to an unhealthy level by the Captain and Agent Rainbird).
Charlie is manipulated into going along with the testing, but before long loses her patience with the men who won’t let her see her father, and we get a spectacular Carrie-esque ending with tons and tons of fire.
