Recently, First Look Media released two new DVD box sets for the show, Psychics and Bizarre Murders. Below is a look at the some of the content you’ll see on Psychics.
Life after Lightning – The story of a man who gains psychic powers after getting stuck by lightning. Reportedly predicted in the 1970s the Gulf War and the fall of Communism, this was a fascinating tale rendered turgid and unwatchable through the interviews with the lifeless subjects. Skip past this one.
Pix of the Dead – A bizarre story of a woman who gained notoriety for being able to draw perfect portraits of people. An intriguing story, a nice change of pace from the traditional psychic story.
Rainboy – A young man who, upon the death of his abusive father, is plagued by indoor rain wherever he goes. Upon his exorcism, he begins to be able to control the rain. A great story, rendered less serious (but more entertaining) by some of the cheesiest re-enactments I’ve ever seen.
Reincarnated Submariner – A hydrophobiac may be the reincarnation of a drowned WWII submariner. My favorite of the bunch.
James Van Praagh – A man (not John Edwards) claims to be able to communicate between dead and living. This is an oft-scrutinized tale, and more than likely Van Praagh is a fraud.
Epilepsy Pooches – The story of an epileptic with a special bond with her guide dog. Great for animal people, worth a view for everyone else.
