The Sender
A suicidal patient is placed in a mental hospital for observation. A psychiatrist realizes that the fellow contains telepathic powers with which he's capable of transferring his own fear-filled nightmares into the minds of others. When he directs his ephemeral madness into the minds of the doctors and patients around him, the hospital turns into a nightmarish melee. ~ Phillip Erlewine, Rovi

    Eerie chiller-suspense 1982.


    A movie riding on the thematics of 'Firestarter' and 'Carrie' in psychic based horror of the mind, 'The Sender' could be shelved on the cheesy predictable cliche's of 80's horror long ago. Predating 'Nightmare on Elm Street', this movie's music and themes of dreams and reality could linger as a suspense-mystery rather than gorish shock horror of the 2000's. A movie of sink-in-seat chills over jolts and shock, the movie may bore some viewers or be a surprise to new nostalgic viewers.
