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).

WARNING MAJOR SPOILERS: During the 70's, Kirlian Photography and Astral Projection were all the rage (even though Kirlian Photography was discovered in the 1930's). The explanation is simple: every object, even inanimate objects, have their own energy force and there was now a way to photograph it and even manipulate it. Entire films were made in the 70's on the subject (INVISIBLE STRANGLER - 1977; PATRICK - 1978; THE KIRLIAN WITNESS - 1979), and this film, originally to be called THE KIRLIAN FORCE, but changed at the last minute, is one of actor/director Raymond Danton's (DEATHMASTER - 1972; CRYPT OF THE LIVING DEAD - 1973; and much episodic TV; Danton passed away in 1992 at the age of 60) most unusual efforts. The film begins with Arnold Masters (Jim Hutton; DON'T BE AFRAID OF THE DARK - 1973) going crazy at a prison mental institution, screaming "Everything I love dies!" (about his mother; she passed away six months earlier and they just told him now). He has been unjustly committed to the mental hospital for a murder he didn't commit and his personal doctor Laura Scott (Julie Adams; CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON - 1954) is worried about his mental state, especially since he has been so calm before. The prison hospital then puts him in a ward with even worse mental patients, where Arnold meets Emilio (Stack Pierce; TRANSFORMED - 2003), who stands by a fence on the hospital's roof and tells Arnold that he "is waiting for a train" (It is probably the film's most emotional moment) as an AmTrack train passes below them. Arnold declares his innocence to Emilio, telling him how his mother got sick, but because he didn't have the money, the doctors wouldn't operate on her to save her life.Read more ›

Wow! viewing this Blu-ray on my home system (120" screen) was better than the actual theater experience (I'd seen the movie during its initial run). The image is sharp and clear with great color and the audio is very crisp, which is saying something for an old "B" picture from the seventies. The story itself is a fun mixture of camp and horror. The extras are also quite interesting and informative. You really can't go wrong with this one ... unless of course you're a brain-dead millennial. :)

Blu ray looks great, what's better is the forgotten gem. I merely wished to see Julie Adams outside of the black lagoon. Here she plays a Dana Scully type character on a case that would've been a great episode of X-Files (if perhaps it hasn't been already...wink wink). Highly recommend this well directed, acted, and written film about a wrongfully convicted man who inherits the power to psychically kill those who had him wrongfully imprisoned.

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.

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!...
