Drew Barrymore heads up the cast in Firestarter, the suspense-filled film based on the best-selling Stephen King novel. After college sweethearts Andrew (David Keith) and Vicky McGee (Heather Locklear) participate in a mysterious psychic experiment, they have a child, Charlie (Barrymore), who is born with the ability to start fires with her mind. Her unique pyrokinetic talent soon comes to the attention of a covert government agency known as "The Shop." Now operatives from this sinister group (Martin Sheen and George C. Scott) are out to capture nine-year-old Charlie and control her supernatural powers at all costs.

Critics Consensus: Firestarter's concept hews too closely to other known Stephen King adaptations, though it's got nice special effects (including scenery-chewing George C. Scott).
