Editorial Reviews

Before CARRIE... before PATRICK... there was Arnold.
Jim Hutton (Don t Be Afraid of the Dark) stars in his final feature film as Arnold Masters, a gentle recluse wrongfully convicted of murder and confined to a snake pit mental institution. When his elderly mother dies from neglect during his incarceration, Arnold devotes his hard time to mastering the voodoo art of astral projection... and remote control revenge. Death by concrete slab... by scalding shower... by meat slicer! No court could convict him because he was never there!
Sleazy, sordid, and filled with nudity and violence, this surreal oddity leaps from one bizarre setpiece to the next... - Mondo Digital

-New transfer from vault materials
-Features B-movie favorites like Creature from the Black Lagoon costars Julie Adams and Whit Bissell, Neville Brand (Eaten Alive), Paul Burke (Valley of the Dolls), Aldo Ray (Riot on Sunset Strip) and Della Reese (Touched By an Angel).

I think most anyone who's seen Creature from the Black Lagoon (1954), when asked the most memorable scene, would probably reply the swimming sequence featuring Julie Adams and the creature...it had a sort of sensual, romantic poetry to it, along with featuring Ms. Adams in a bathing suit. And I'll tell you what, seeing her some twenty years later in this film, Psychic Killer (1975), she's aged incredibly well, looking about as beautiful as she did back then...older, yes, but no less attractive, in my opinion. Co-written by Mikel Angel (The Love Butcher), Greydon Clark (Satan's Cheerleaders), and Ray Danton (The Rise and Fall of Legs Diamond), who also directed here, the film stars Jim Hutton (Where the Boys Are, Major Dundee, The Green Berets), Paul Burke (Valley of the Dolls, The Thomas Crown Affair), and Julie Adams (Creature from the Black Lagoon, "General Hospital", McQ), who was also married to writer/director Danton at the time. Also appearing is Neville Brand (Stalag 17, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn), Nehemiah Persoff (Voyage of the Damned, Twins), Whit Bissell (Soylent Green), Mary Charlotte Wilcox (The Big Bus), Stack Pierce (Cool Breeze, Trader Horn), and Della Reese (Harlem Nights, "Touched by an Angel") in a minor, yet highly memorable role.

The film begins in a state run mental ward, as we see a man awakened in a panic, and run screaming through the facility until finally subdued. His name is Arnold Masters (Hutton), and he's plagued with nightmares about his deceased mother. The back story is his mother was really sick and needed an operation, one which he couldn't afford...no cash, no slash, that's our policy...

4.0 out of 5 stars Out Of Body And Mind... May 1, 2008
Format:DVD
PSYCHIC KILLER is one of those great PG movies from the 70s, packed w/ stuff that would have gotten it an R today! Arnold Masters (Jim Hutton) has lost his mother and been wrongly locked up in a mental institution. While there, he meets a fellow patient / inmate who exacts revenge on an enemy. This is incredible due to the fact that his victim is outside of the institution! Arnold is given the secret means to do the same, and man, does he have a lot of scores to settle! First, there's the smarmy psychiatrist (Whit Bissell from Target Earth, Creature From The Black Lagoon) who got Arnold committed. Bad idea! Arnold goes into a deep trance, leaves his body, and pays the good doctor one final visit. Next, a naughty nurse (Mary Wilcox) meets a similar fate, but not before dancing around in her underwear and taking a nice, steamy shower! Egad! Too bad it's her last! This could be my favorite part of the entire movie! PK has many memorable death scenes, including an operatic murder by concrete slab, and a butcher named Lemonowski (played w/ style by Eaten Alive's Neville Brand) who gets to experience just what it means to be ground sirloin! Yep, this is a great little revenge thriller, using astral projection as the method of exacting vengeance. Julie Adams (Creature From The Black Lagoon) also stars as Arnold's current doctor and the only one he trusts. Also watch for the permanently disgruntled Aldo Ray as a cop, and Della Reese as an unsatisfied customer of Mr. Lemonowski's butcher shop. For added fun, check out Hutton's hairdo during the finalé! Oh my!...

4.0 out of 5 stars A LOW BUDGET HORROR FILM WORTH SEEING! August 18, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
It's nice to see this available on DVD and looking this crisp and clean with numerous trailers as a bonus. I had not seen this film in about 20 years, but it holds up well and is way better than most films of this kind. This is a low budget horror film that is handled well and shows you don't have to have a big budget to produce and effective and entertaining movie. The cast is very good and much better than the usual you find in this sort of thing.

It's a strange film as it seems like a TV movie one minute and then turns gruesome and nasty the next or at least too suggestive and nasty for TV at the time. The simple story and quick paced direction make this one both creepy and fun. Hutton acquires the ability to project an astral form to do his bidding and uses this power to seek revenge for the people who wrong him and his mother. While the deaths aren't too graphic they do stick with you. The director makes sure you don't like the victims so watching them meet horrible deaths is a guilty pleasure. The film doesn't waste any time getting to it, but enough background is given to make us care about the characters.

It was great to see Whit Bissell (I was a Teenage Werewolf and many other horror, western and sci-fi films and TV shows) and Julie Adams (Creature from the Black Lagoon) in this neat little film that stuck with me from my childhood. At the time this was a fairly intense a graphic film, but not by today's standard.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really enjoyable b-movie April 3, 2005
Format:DVD
The basic idea of this is that Arnold Masters is sent to a mental hospital for committing a crime he thinks he didn't commit and befriends a black man who not only believes him but gives him his black magic set after he dies. He is set free from the hospital after some bizarre happenings and comes home to find life in the old house has become dilapidated and filled with cobwebs. Being on his own since his mother passed away, he reads the old letters he sent to his mother and sees that they were partially censored which he finds deeply upsetting. He venges to make the people who done him wrong pay. And he makes sure he does that by using the black magic set he was given. One by one the victims are killed and the police are clueless to who it is until the missing pieces suddenly fall into place.

While the acting may be a bit ropey occasionally, the film plays out extremely well and occasionally has a few blackly comical scenes in the mix to ease the viewer somewhat. The tension though is created well and altogether the film is compelling viewing. Some scenes such as The Nurse's Death will provide enough amusement for all and the operatic property expert might possibly raise a chuckle or two. Sure there are shades of Psycho and possibly The Wicker Man about it ( but the last reference is only somewhat brief ) but the film can easily hold itself on it's own. Ultimately it is a really enjoyable movie but one that is utterly bleak in it's outlook on revenge and loss and the sad ending to this only makes it all the more so.
