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.

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.

I have gone through at least 3 different releases of this film including an unwatchable VHS copy and finally, Severin Films got it right. This is a beautiful transfer and gives you the ability at seeing how underrated Lucio Fulci's photographic compositions were when he believed in a project. Over the years, this film got a raw deal because it is not excessively gory as his later works. The film emerges as the closest Fulci reached in creating a macabre tone poem. Back in the mid eighties, I used to work at the Galleria Mall in White Plains, New York and Jennifer O 'Neill used to frequent my shop quite regularly as a customer, she loved progressive rock music. She had a horse farm in the area. When I asked her about this film, she had fond memories of the shoot and was quite proud of it. 'Sette Note in Nero' its original title and Luchino Viscontis' 'L'Innocente'-'The Innocent' were her favorite European films. I hope she got a copy of this transfer, I think she would be really pleased and proud as to how it holds up in the digital age. If only Lucio Fulci could have seen his poem get its just rewards. Thank you, Severin.

Jennifer O'Neill is one of my favorite scream queens, and she gets a pretty ideal starring role here. The mostly undiscovered movie is beautifully shot and costumed, and O'Neill's Virginia lives a life of luxury, seeing her husband off on a charter plane at the beginning of the movie (everything shot in fabulous 1970s disco-dreamy hazy shades of brown), then driving herself to a country house she plans to renovate. Only along the way she has a very complicated vision (triggered by tunnels along the highway) that reminds her of the one she had as a child, when she saw her mother die. Her vision leads her to take an ax to a wall in the abandonded house, where she unearths a skeleton. The more she finds out about her vision, the more doomed she begins to feel, but she's drawn to her fate like a moth to a flame. The film is full of odd characters.

There's an intriguing mystery women whom we never actually see at the same time we hear her speak; a parapsychologist who has a ditzy but amazingly organized secretary; a sister-in-law who identifies herself as shallow and unfocused; and a museum director who keeps cutting and regrowing his beard. This film came out a year before "Eyes of Laura Mars," and there are a lot of similarities (though the American film is more of a consistent thriller, and this film is more of a Gothic mystery). Another film it brings to mind is "Don't Look Now" (1973) which has a very similar vibe of psychic insight leading to danger and doom. In the end, due to the Bulgari jewelry, the luxurious coats, the lurid colors, the recurring imagery and the haunting score by Fabio Frizzi, I'd call this film a forgotten gem.

BTW, there are two special features, despite the Amazon specs above: an original trailer, and a documentary that layers revealing interviews with significant crew members over scenes from the film.
