Lucio Fulci's The Psychic on Blu-ray and Digital from Shameless in August

14 July 2021

Genre specialist label Shameless – whose early DVD releases we used to review with enthusiastic regularity – presents Lucio 'The Godfather of Gore' Fulci's The Psychic (aka Murder To the Tune of the Seven Black Notes) like never seen before, extensively restored from new 2K-scanned materials.

Jennifer O'Neill, fresh from Luchino Visconti’s The Innocent, plays Virginia, a woman who has had psychic powers since childhood when she sensed her mother’s suicide… Now newly-married, Virginia becomes plagued by waking visions of bloody deaths and meaningless torment. With the aid of her parapsychologist friend (Marc Porel), she tries to uncover the meaning of the horrific visions only to discover they are premonitions of future deaths…

Get ready for a Hitchcockian whodunit like no other. From the visionary Lucio Fulci, enter the disjointed universe of The Psychic where reality and dreams, the dead and the living, the past and present are all interconnected. In the words of Stephen Thrower, "The Psychic deserves careful consideration as one of Fulci's best films."
