Stephen King returned to one of his favourite themes – a child with special powers – in his tale of a young girl with pyrokinetic abilities, the result of shady government experiments once performed on her parents. Originally offered to John Carpenter, who dropped out due to unexpected budget cuts, the resulting adaptation may well be a work of compromise, but still contains a wealth of iconic images.
