Lame, Full of Clichés and Predictable Story
The college student Patrick Costello (Zach Galligan) shares an apartment with his childhood friend Nick (Albert Schultz) and has a crush on his professor Laurel Young (Catherine Mary Stewart). Patrick has premonitions through dreams and daydreams since he was a kid and recently he is foreseeing the deaths of young women. He succeeds on dating Laurel and soon he learns that she is also dating her friend and also professor Theodore "Ted" Steering (Michael Nouri), who is the serial-killer wanted by the police. Now Patrick seeks evidences to prove that Steering is a killer to protect his beloved Laurel, but nobody believes in his words. When Steering invites Laurel to travel with him to another town, Patrick has premonitions with her becoming his next victim. What can he do to save Laurel?
"Psychic" is a lame thriller full of clichés with a predictable story and one-dimension characters. The ridiculous Patrick produces many evidences against himself breaking in apartments. The two detectives are totally stupid and annoying. Why Steering is a serial-killer? There is no development of his character. The speed of the machine for clearing snow on the road seems to be in a car race. Last but not the least: what a hot professor would find attractive in a guy like Zach Galligan to have one night stand with him? My vote is four.
Title (Brazil): "Psychic, Premonição Fatal" ("Psychic, Fatal Premonition")
