From Innocence - To Fear - To Rage!

"Two Academy Award Winning Stars," Tatum O'Neal and Irene Cara, teamed up in 1985 for Certain Fury, a trashy female take on The Defiant Ones (or, if you prefer, a thinly-disguised remake of Black Mama, White Mama), directed by Stephen Gyllenhaal (Jake and Maggie's dad). As with several other '80s action scores (see Raw Deal), the music is the handiwork of three composers -- in this case, Bill Payne, George Massenburg, and Russ Kunkel, who all returned again for Smooth Talk and not much else. The main theme ("Fire in Her Eyes") is the most memorable feature, though the rest is also a bit more layered and interesting than the usual synth-action stuff you might expect.

Oh God--I have the original New World VHS of FLOWERS IN THE ATTIC (another great Christopher Young score, as I'm sure you know!) and there is a preview for this movie before it. It looks terrible!

But who am I to talk...I own FLOWERS IN THE ATTIC.

It is terrible, but very, very funny if you watch it late at night. However, it doesn't have anyone running down an aisle yelling "Eat the cookie, mother!," so Flowers in the Attic still wins, hands down.

And again, if you have or can post the FitA soundtrack many thanks. I'm fond of Louise Fletcher constantly barking "sinners!" or "spawn of the devil!" at the children myself.
