The ability to move things with only the power of one’s mind can power horrifying movie plots. Even when it’s not the focus of a film, it opens up the opportunity for great special effects. How do you defend yourself from someone who doesn’t even have to be close to attack you? There are a lot of movies that harness the power of fictional telekinesis, but few that were more terrifying than Carrie.
For being a scared little high school girl for most of the movie, Carrie is one of the most powerful figures on this list. Let’s see, she literally trapped her classmates in a burning gym, cooking them all as revenge for getting a blood bucket dumped on her, she stopped her mom’s heart with her mind and then as a grand finale, sucked her entire house into hell. Not bad.
That still leaves nine movies on this list of telekinetic cinema, which you’ll enjoy at TVOM.
