The Sender (Christian, 1982): BFI Southbank, NFT3, 6.10pm

This film is part of the BFI Southbank Terror Vision strand.

BFI introduction:
Often claimed to be an inspiration on A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors, Roger Christian’s psychokinetic phantasmagoria (itself influenced by the likes of Carrie and Patrick) tells the story of a young man who is able to transmit his disturbed dreams into the minds of the people around him. A bracing blend of insidious surrealism and spectacular set pieces, this singular shocker is cited by Quentin Tarantino as his favourite film from 1982.

Here (and above) is the trailer.
