Interesting details of the psychic world make this enjoyable.
10 April 1999 | by (Suffolk, Virginia) – See all my reviews

This documentary feature hosted by Raymond Burr is another in a series of movie mysteries about the strange and the unknown, and it's better than you'd least expect. What follows is a detailed examination of psychology through some uncommon events portrayed here. It'll be interesting for a few lazy school kids who can't turn in science reports on time. As the title says, it's amazing how man explores a vast perception of psychic abilities under a series of demonstrations including telepathy, astral projections, and sayonces. It's fun in an entertaining way, and you even have the opportunity to test yourself of any telepathic senses under the care of a doctor (Does this mean audience participation?). The acting footage that recreates uncommon happenings is fairly amusing, yet peculiar enough to make any normal movie look like a sleazy prime-time TV show. Since this was made by the once-proud Sunn Classics, you can easily sit through this one, but always remember that movies are just plain and simple fantasies that trick reality. On the other hand, I wouldn't be surprised to find a few ghosts lurking around when I'm asleep!
