An entertaining cross between Porky’s and Carrie which stars Scott Baio, alias Chachi from Happy Days, as a nerdy high-school kid who gets zapped in a chem-lab explosion, and finds he has the power to move objects by thought alone.
Cue lots of teen high jinks, such as telekinetically divesting the busty local girls of their blouses, and taking control of the ball during a school baseball game.
There are further tips of the hat to De Palma’s seminal shocker, only this is much more madcap, and surprisingly amusing.
