If you have ever been in desperate need of a psychic reading, you know that it is fun, sometimes a great relief, and you can get some of the best tips for a relationship and many other issues when you speak with one. However, when we look at psychic Hollywood films, it creates on a number of thoughts in mind, and it even excites us. In this post, we have shortlisted the top five movies that have made an impact on Hollywood and even on the lives of people who have you watched and lived the experience…
In 1976, people were talking about Little Miss telekinetic who was the heroine of Stephan King’s first novel. In the movie, she had the ability to move objects at will with the power of her mind. This was a strong moving in the 70s, and it was considered to be a template for persecuted kids. The character discovers her superpowers after going through a humiliating bullying incident.
Ah…you gotta love the petite medium, played by the late great Zelda Rubinstein, who dishes a unique and eerie bit of comic relief to the definitive Hooper/Spielberg haunted house classic. Truth be told, we could count the mom Diane Freeling (JoBeth Williams) as a seer as well, after-all it is she who starts to sense supernatural happenings in the house before anyone else. At least, she senses what’s really underneath before the others. You gotta wonder sometimes in movies like this why it takes so long for the characters in the movie to start taking all of the aggressive supernatural occurrences seriously. In real life that house would have been abandoned by week 1.
The Men Who Stare at Goats (2009)
The story looks an average flick till the reporter in Iraq meets Lyn Cassady. Lyn claims to be a member of the U.S. Army’s specific unit that is focused on employing paranormal powers in their missions. It looks silly, but it has moments that will force you to jump out of your seat at regular intervals.
Red Lights (2012)
Legendary but elusive blind psychic Simon Silver (De Niro) emerges following a mysterious 30 year absence. Once-fearless psychic investigator Matheson warns her understudy to leave Silver alone for fear that he will retaliate. This movie was better than I expected and gave a unique twist to the psychic formula you usually see in Hollywood movies.
The Sixth Sense (1999)
Young Cole Sear (Haley Joel Osment) is haunted by a dark secret: he is visited by ghosts. Cole is frightened by visitations from those with unresolved problems who appear from the shadows. He is too afraid to tell anyone about his anguish, except child psychologist Dr. Malcolm Crowe (Bruce Willis). As Dr. Crowe tries to uncover the truth about Cole’s supernatural abilities, the consequences for client and therapist are a jolt that awakens them both to something unexplainable. ** This movie is not necessarly based on psychic reading powers and is more focused on Cole’s ability to see dead people and communicate with them. Cole would be considered more of a medium than a psychic.
Being able to predict the future would certainly enhance my odds when I hit the casino and the ability to read minds would vastly improve my dating game. Movies about people with special mental abilities have a long and illustrious history, so it’s no wonder they are one of the most popular genres in cinema.
