| Patrick a little slow
Patrick Costello (Zach Galligan) lives with his childhood friend Nick who knows about his psychic powers. He has visions of women getting killed. His college professor Laurel Young (Catherine Mary Stewart) brings in guest lecturer Theodore Steering (Michael Nouri) to talk about abnormal psychology. Patrick uses his powers to date Laurel. He discovers that she's also dating Steering whom he suspects could be the serial killer. He tells the police but they don't believe his vision. He tracks down the next victim April Harris (Andrea Roth) but she's not dead. When April turns up dead later, he becomes prime suspect. He tells them that Steering is the killer but Steering is actually consulting with the police.

The big drawback is that Patrick is really stupid or really naive especially considering he's not new to his powers. He is way too slow on the uptick. He's been through it and shouldn't be surprised at being arrested. The psychic becoming the suspect has been done before. It would be helpful to have a sharper story with smarter characters. The tension drops when Patrick is released. It would be ballsier if Patrick stays locked up and the movie gets turned over to Laurel. The top three actors are good but the supporting actors are mostly inferior.
