Charlie's back, and she's just burning for revenge! In 1984, Stephen King's Firestarter became a horror film hit, with its frightening tale of a young couple whose involvement in a secret government drug experiment produced a dangerously gifted child. The child is now a woman. Charlene "Charlie" McGee (Marguerite Moreau) has spent the past 10 years on the run from the unscrupulous government agents who created her. Now she's through with running and has decided to reclaim her life. A showdown is inevitable, and Charlie's only chance for survival lies in a turncoat government agent and a half-mad professor named Richardson (Dennis Hopper).
