A Must See For All Euro-Cult Enthusiasts. An Excellent Cast And Classic Nail-Biter Sequences! --DVD Maniacs

Product Description

Shortly before he surrendered to the gory excesses of horror, Lucio Fulci - the notorious director of ZOMBIE and PERVERSION STORY - crafted one last brilliant thriller with a killer twist. Jennifer O'Neill of SCANNERS stars as a clairvoyant tormented by visions of a violent murder. But will her own investigation into the crime lead to the most shocking discovery of all? Marc Porel (DON'T TORTURE A DUCKLING) and Evelyn Stewart (THE WHIP AND THE BODY) co-star this chilling giallo that critics and fans - including avowed devotee Quentin Tarantino - consider the most stunning film of the maestro's entire career.

Released in the U.S. with several key scenes removed, THE PSYCHIC (aka SEVEN NOTES IN BLACK and MURDER TO THE TUNE OF SEVEN BLACK NOTES) is now presented in its fully restored European Version featuring footage never before seen in America.

4.0 out of 5 stars Forgotten Fulci October 19, 2007
Format:DVD
What a masterpiece. Most of you know Lucio Fulci as being the king of over the top gore and violence with films like The Beyond, Zombie, and House By the Cemetery. Fulci is much more reserved in this quiet subdued thriller yet the film is still one of his strongest works. Instead of the gore he uses much more suspense and build up and keeps you guessing throughout. The film has that 70's glaze which I love and amazing poster art as well. I just recently picked up an original 1977 print of the poster. Don't miss this movie. It is way overlooked and needs to be necessitated.

Tonight I closed my eyes and pointed my finger towards my Horror collection and this is what I picked to enjoy. Well, after finally getting around to watching my copy of Lucio Fulci's 'The Psychic' -aka- 'Seven Notes in Black', I stood up and gave a little personal clap for the film. haha. 'The Psychic' was another blind buy for me and I must admit, I don't think I'd have given it a chance had it not been for Fulci's name and that beautiful cover art! I say that because that was a time when I had just started collecting Horror films and was extremely picky. Well, I'm not too much like that anymore haha. However, I remember being awed by the cover art when I was a little kid but never rented it. Anyway, back to this flick. If watching this for the first time and thinking your going to see the usual Fulci film, your dead wrong!
This isn't nothing like 'Zombie', 'The Beyond', or 'House By the Cemetery' etc. I don't mean that in a bad way either. The beginning of this flick may start off like what you're used to seeing as far as bloodiness goes but then it takes an unfamiliar turn for the next 45 to 50 minutes with full character development. There's a lot of talky talky going on in this film but it works! Then it cranks back up around 60 to 65 minutes in!!! The story comes together nicely and has a creepy music score. It seems almost sort of a Giallo film. All in all, I wouldn't want to see this film put together any other way. During those "slow" parts, there are bloody visions to be seen from our main character, Jennifer (Scanners) O'Neil, who has the misfortune of being given psychic abilities since she was young in seeing clues that lead towards ones death! Poor mom. Could her next visions lead towards her own deadly fate, as well!? Since she has all the clues, could she somehow change things!? You just have to see for yourself! Warning: This film may not be for all Fulci fans.

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid Fulci movie before his splatter era December 23, 2007
Format:DVD
The Psychic AKA Seven Notes in Black sort of marked an end of Fulci's career, but started another career for him. Lucio Fulci like I always say was a filmmaker who sparked debates among horror fans. Some love him and others see him as a no talent splatter director, but before Fulci became a splatter director he did some top notch Giallo work that sadly went over-looked.

If you're looking for what became the typical Fulci movie loaded with a high body count and a whole lot of gore well you best look elsewhere. Most of the violence happens off camera and what we see gore wise is very, very little. The Psychic was made back before Fulci started his splatter era, which was only 2-years away. Many people feel Fulci was a lousy filmmaker, but I have to disagree. Even in his splatter era he was a good filmmaker. He knew how to build tension, but it was often over-looked due to poor dubbing, an incoherent plot, idiotic characters and a whole lot of the red stuff.

With The Psychic, Fulci attempts to tell a story using filmmaking skills rather than blood. And he sort of did that in some areas, but in others The Psychic just didn't work. The Psychic is a very slow burn type movie that relies on story and characters and there is a little bit of a problem.

The screenplay was written by Lucio Fulci, Roberto Gianviti and Dardano Sacchetti, but according to Sacchetti, Lucio didn't write a single word to the movie. He would show up at meetings and say what he liked or disliked, but never actually wrote. I don't see what Sacchetti would gain from lying, but since Fulci is credited I will acknowledge him as a writer regardless of what's true. From a writing stand-point The Psychic had all the right ideas. And all the ideas were mostly executed well.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Mesmerizing Edge Of Your Seat Puzzle ! January 18, 2008
Format:DVD
Lucio Fulci's almost forgotten gem "The Psychic"(aka:Five Notes In Black) is not only one of the maestro's most brilliant pieces of cinema but it's more so proof that the god of gore could make a thriller just as creepy as "The Beyond","House By The Cemetary" and "Zombi 2" with out large amounts of blood and gore. Dardano Sacchetti penned up a whopper of a giallo here and Fulci and the rest of the film crew(actors/musicians/editors/costume designers and such) did a mesmerizing job bringing Sacchetti's story/screenplay to life. As a big Lucio Fulci fan I am more than delighted to add this masterpiece to my collection. Great film!

4.0 out of 5 stars Tolerable Fulci Given to Good June 18, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
1977's "The Psychic" is a later Lucio Fulci "giallo" that is quite good even though his later period follows on its heels. His famous gore period started in 1979 with "Zombie." Although the plot of "The Psychic" is a bit of a gimmick, it is almost as good as "Perversion Story" and "Don't Torture a Duckling" two much earlier giallos, and in some ways, perhaps better. With "Perversion Story", it is the acting that brings down the film as an excellent, and dare I say for Fulci, any "masterpiece"? And with Fulci's films, it is always a technical flaw that mars his film from any brilliance, something that as a competent director of many genres, he would have this notch taken care of. Jennifer O'Neil and others in the cast are all competent. But something I must comment on, Severin's transfer is really good, what with many reviewers saying Severin dropped the ball with "The Psychic," at least the anticipated problems with the low sound were not on my copy, especially as the silences were "cranked up" by Severin screaming with "white noise." Even the accompanying trailer (DVD also contains another extra) is noted "thankfully" supplied it's much maligned condition adding to the rarity of the film. Not a complete success upon release, I remember "the triumph" of Fulci's "Zombie" a few years later was that it was held over in a few theaters to accommodate the crowds it drew.
