Storyline

Cronin Mitchell is an average guy whose face is disfigured by a falling electrical power line in which he somehow acquires the gift/curse of strange psychic powers. After withdrawing from public life, 'Mitch' makes a living as a fortune teller when he's approached by an ugly hag who offers to restore his good looks if he becomes her lover. Mitch reluctantly agrees, and although his face is restored, people around him see his lover as an attractive young woman named Ellen. When news of Mitch's psychic powers leak out, he goes on the road with Ellen from city to city and town to town helping people solve crimes. After expelling a ghost from a funeral home, Mitch and Ellen are sent to a small Illinois town to find the identity of a serial killer. But the government sends along a crackpot psychiatrist/playboy, named Dr. Alex Jordan, to oversee the case and possibly debunk Mitch's psychic abilities.

Campy, kooky fun
8 May 2004 | by (Queens, NY) – See all my reviews

Something Weird is aptly named. The story is unusual and a strange vibe is present throughout; either that or the psychedelic soundtrack. Don't expect top notch acting, but the main characters are good enough. I can't get the image of the hag's cackling laugh and her tongue sticking out. Poor Mitchell, this guy was so desperate to get his wish granted, but it shows how bitter Mitchell was with his condition. Ah, and the LSD scene was the high point for me. In that state, you would find a phone conversation as easy to handle with as quantum space mechanics.

However, I watched this and did want to see how it turned out. The ending seems abrupt and out of the blue, but it's a weird, kooky romp. Where else can you see a blanket attack?
