quite interesting
8 September 2001 | by (Pittsburgh, PA) – See all my reviews

Produced during a resurgence of interest in psychic phenomena in the mid to late 1970s, Amazing World covers quite a few topics, from telepathy and astral projection to ghosts and haunted houses. Raymond Burr is excellent as the host and narrator, and while the recreation actors are not Oscar material they do a fairly good job with the roles given to them. Burr himself is what makes this documentary work; someone with less stature or experience may have made this film seem less serious and more of a tabloid type movie. The scenes recreating the reports of ghosts may or may not frighten the viewer, but are quite well done nonetheless. Definitely well made, and much better than many other documentaries from the same era.
