A chilling, reality-based, horror film.
“The China Syndrome” is perhaps the first horror film that is not necessarily following the rules of the genre. It takes place in the contemporary ’70’s, and features people in the normal profession of broadcast television news. But, when a news story about the leakage of nuclear energy breaks; let’s just say – there is your monster.
Jane Fonda is absolutely superb as Kimberley Wells, an ambitious Los Angeles reporter relegated only to fluff pieces by her sexist boss (Peter Donat). She wants something juicier, and gets it, in the form of an accident at a nuclear power plant facilitated by Jack Godell (Jack Lemmon with expressions too numerous to count). Her hippie radical cameraman (Michael Douglas, who also produced) photographs the incident without the plant’s knowledge and they both agree that public safety is a valid story. The network brass doesn’t think so, and soon both Fonda and Douglas are entangled in a web of legalities concerning the tape.
The crux of the film is Lemmon’s character. A man torn between loyalty to his company and telling the truth – even in the face of grave consequences. What makes this horror scenario so compelling is that these are true flesh-and-blood people stuck in the most extraordinary of circumstances faced with both a threat of cosmic proportions as well as a human one.
This is a remarkably chilling thriller, and I’m disappointed that it’s not taken more seriously (as both art and tract).
