Today brings exciting news for Fulci fanatics: Severin Films is releasing a brand-new 4K restoration of the master’s The Psychic (1977)! And that’s not all: this release will also include the never-before-available-in-the-States, feature-length documentary Fulci Speaks. That’s more Fulci than you can shake a stick at!

Take it away, press release:

It’s been called “amazing” (Oh, The Horror!), “classic” (The Geek Show) and “a magnificent film” (Diabolique Magazine). It remains writer/director Lucio Fulci’s ultimate giallo masterpiece: Jennifer O’Neill (SCANNERS) stars as a woman tormented by violent visions of past slayings. Or are they premonitions of murders still to come? Gabriele Ferzetti (THE NIGHT PORTER), Marc Porel (THE SISTER OF URSULA), Gianni Garko (NIGHT OF THE DEVILS) and Evelyn Stewart (FOOTPRINTS) co-star in this “rare, rewarding experience” (The Geek Show) co-written by Fulci, Roberto Gianviti (DON’T TORTURE A DUCKLING) and Dardano Sacchetti (THE BEYOND) – originally titled MURDER TO THE TUNE OF THE SEVEN BLACK NOTES – now scanned in 4K from the original negative with over five hours of new Special Features that include the 2021 documentary FULCI TALKS.
