Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
Psychic Killer can't exactly be called a good horror film. The plot meanders all over the place, the scares are minimal, and the premise is too unintentionally silly to generate any real chills. That said, cult movie devotees will want to hunt this one down because it offers plenty of the unpredictable, twisted moments that any schlock addict craves. After a relatively staid first act, the wild script piles on an array of memorably twisted "creative kill" death scenes that range from memorably gruesome (the demise of a butcher in his shop) to hysterically funny (an unforgettable scene where an opera-loving slumlord is crushed to death while singing an aria!). As a result, the tone constantly shifts from drama to suspense to black comedy, but that's all part of the fun. The cast is a B-movie lover's delight. Former teen idol Jim Hutton creates a memorably offbeat anti-hero and genre-flick stalwarts like Greydon Clark and Neville Brand get to do plenty of hamming it up before getting done in. Director Ray Danton never really manages to take control of his bizarre material, but he paces it well and delivers an amazing amount of unpredictable oddity in a short time frame. In short, Psychic Killer will baffle anyone expecting a straight scare-fest but anyone in search of cheap thrills at their most eccentric will have a field day.
