Although not up to sophisticated John Carpenter standards, Psychic Killer - with Hutton released from an asylum in possession of a mysterious medallion which enables him to wreak revenge on those responsible for his wrongful commitment - wouldn't disgrace the Corman stable. A good, cheap, diverting horror exploiter with a reasonably developed sense of its own ridiculousness (a couple of funny, bloody murders), and a cast of old hands (Adams, Ray, Brand) who know a hilt when they see one, and boy, do they play up to it. Ray Danton used to act in films just like this, and if not inspired, his handling of the grotesque is both sure-footed and fun.
