if i remember correctly the final scene of this movie has some type of villain walking into a room where they are holding some girl with psychic powers and she makes his head explode scanners style late 80s or early 90s ? he is wearing an eye patch and cast on his arm. i thought at first it must be some kind of sequel to "scanners" but i dont think it is now.  any help would be purely platonic.

Doesn't sound too familiar sorry, but the Scanners series branched out quite a bit so it may be one of them. I think there are 2 or 3 sequels to the original "Scanners" plus there's "Scanner Cop."

It reminds me vaguely of Firestarter, but it couldn't be...

\"Supernatural?...perhaps. Baloney?...Perhaps not!\" Bela Lugosi-the BLACK CAT (1934)

It's been a while since I saw this film, but could your film perhaps be Brian de Palma's The Fury with Amy Irving, Andrew Stevens and John Casavettes?

As I recall (SPOILER) Amy makes John literally explode  hot at the end, I can't remember if he was wearing an eyepatch and cast, though.

I've been going through the summaries of "The Fury" on IMDB and one of them references Cassavetes (the bad guy) having a broken arm. This is from the second tab of the user plot summaries.

"The other actors seem to work on routine; Kirk Douglas acts as if he's in a B-movie about spies, and has some bad dialogue to deal with. Andrew Stevens looks right for the part, and while not a convincing actor, his creepy hunk presence seems appropriate, especially towards the end of the movie. Cassavetes is OK, but not more, and looks somewhat uncomfortable with his black suit and busted-up arm."

The Fury is what came to my mind, as well.

Kneel before Dr. Hell, the ruler of this world!
