What was the movie about a government controlled psychic?

Asked by Kingkamandi (149points) February 10th, 2008

I remember a movie, though maybe it was a TV show, about a man with psychic powers who was kept imprisioned (perhaps in a tank?) by the government. At some point he got very angry or maybe even went insane and turned his powers against his captors. Any ideas as to what it might be?

Altered States

Do heads blow up? Scanners?

Imprisoned in a tank? That doesn’t sound terribly sensible on the part of the evil dudes.

How did he use his powers? Were they telekinetic?

It is neither Altered States or Scanners.

I’m pretty sure it is from the early 1990s.

I believe you’re thinking of The Fury, from 1978.

No, I saw THE FURY recently and that is mot it.
