"The Psychic (aka The Seven Notes in Black )" Review


Synopsis: A clairvoyant woman, inspired by a vision, smashes open a section of wall in her husband's home and finds a skeleton behind it. Along with her psychiatrist, she seeks to find the truth about who the person was and who put her there. Soon enough, she starts to realize the possibility that she may share the victim's fate...

Review: When it comes to Fulci films I am more familiar with his horror films than I am with any other genre he delve into particularly the Giallo genre. In this film Fulci relies more on suspense than his typical shock and gore that he fills his horror films with and he definitely sticks to the classic giallo style. After watching it I can say I got what I expected from this film and what i got was a very strong plot with plenty of twists that kept me wondering who the killer was all the way until the end. Even though it had a strong plot to me one of it's biggest downfalls was that the lead female character seemed quite weak when it came to the climax of the film other than that all the actors and actresses did an amazing job. Overall this is a giallo despite my gripes with the lead actresses character and this definitely ranks high with me when it comes to Lucio Fulci's films. I give this film a strong 4.5 out of 5!
