5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By J.M. "The Phantom" on 30 Jan. 2010
Format: DVD
The basic story..A clairvoyant (Jennifer O'Neill) has a vision of a death in a house and sees clearly a limping man and various objects in the room. When her husband (Gianni Garko) is arrested on suspicion of murder it's up to her to clear his name but her vision is still on her mind.
"The Psychic" is definitely another winner from the great Lucio Fulci and succeeds as a suspenseful thriller and stylish piece of work. Yes the direction is excellent with many wonderful sequences and touches. Also there are nice locations and beautiful colours as well as good effective music. You would class this as a Giallo but its not similar to the Dario Argento ones, but it has all the tension you could hope for and genuine surprises. The acting is good also with Gianni Garko (Sartana) putting in a good performance, Marc Parol (Don't torture a duckling) is also good. It's not gory like Fulci's most famous work but I definitely recommend this classy film. 4.5 Stars.
This release from Severin is region 1 and is totally uncut. The picture quality is great and extras are a featurette and trailer.

Format: DVD
A good story/plot let down by unexceptional filmmaking/cinematography. I disagree that this is among Fulci's finest work, Lizard in a Woman's skin and Don't Torture a Duckling are both preferable. Though i dont think Fulci's Giallos are among the finest of the genre anyway. The Psychic feels like a made for TV movie or crime drama. Also the transfer is pretty badly interlaced, resulting in jerky screen during camera 'pan' movements and a helluva lot of lines all over the screen. See: Shriek Show giallo releases for similar shoddy picture. Enjoyable enough but could have been better. 3 stars.

Format: DVD
IMPORTANT NOTE: IT IS ADVISABLE TO WATCH THE FILM BEFORE VIEWING THE SPECIAL FEATURES ON THIS DISC.

The Psychic, a.k.a. Sette Note In Nero (Seven Notes In Black) and Murder To The Tune Of Seven Black Notes, is an absorbing 1970s giallo film directed by the late, great Lucio Fulci, who is perhaps best-known for his gory horror movies such as Zombie Flesh Eaters and The Beyond.

The Psychic begins in England in 1959 with a woman committing suicide by throwing herself off a cliff. At the same time in Florence a young girl has a vision of this event. The young girl is the dead woman's daughter and she possesses clairvoyant powers.

Eighteen years later the girl, who is called Virginia, has now become a beautiful woman and she suddenly starts to have strange visions involving a broken mirror, a yellow taxi, a red light, a picture with writing on it, a religious painting, a mysterious red room, a murdered woman covered in blood, a statue resting on its side, a man with a moustache, a limping man, an unusual brand of cigarette resting on a blue ashtray, a magazine with a beautiful young woman on its cover and someone building a brick wall. What do all these images mean and are they somehow related? Are they flashbacks of things that have already happened or are they premonitions of events in the future? Where do Virginia and her new husband Francesco fit into all of this? Virginia sets out to try and put all the pieces of the puzzle together.

To go into greater detail would mean me writing a review that would be several pages long and revealing some of the intricacies of the plot but I will say that The Psychic is a fine example of the giallo film with a clever script that just uncovers enough information before it reaches its memorable conclusion.

This is the last of Fulci's "giallo" series before he went off down the "Zombie" route.

It is a good story, well cast and is well lensed by Fulci and regular cameraman Sergio Salvati.

Unfortunately, Severin's transfer is unexceptional, being rather soft and grainy. The english dub is ok as these things go.

Forgotten Fulci 19 Oct. 2007
By BronsonFondaNelson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
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.

After WATCHING this, I think I will invest in a musical WATCH!!! 17 Feb. 2010
By Jennifer M. Hensley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
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.

Underrated Fulci 25 May 2010
By William Amazzini - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
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.

haunted heroine caught in her own clairvoyant web 1 Jun. 2014
By Eric - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
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.

Tolerable Fulci Given to Good 18 Jun. 2013
By V. Risoli - Published on Amazon.com
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.
