The Psychic (1968)

aka Copenhagen's Psychic Loves

How bad is it? Dull film with inserted sex scenes.
Should you see it? No.

This is NOT the Fulci film of the same name from 1977 - I think people who rated this highly made that mistake. This was co-written and shot by Herschell Gordon Lewis (who's all over this blog), but directed by someone else, who never made another film. A man falls off a ladder, has brain surgery and becomes psychic. He then tries to use these new powers of foreseeing the future to help him in business and his love life. The film is dull and was considered un-releasable, so nude inserts were added to try to spice it up and it was retitled to market with "I Am Curious" and other Scandinavian art-house films. It's till dull.
