Greetings All....
Other than Nightmare Alley, can anyone recommend any Mentalism or Fake Psychic themed movies?

Thanks!

MAGIC with Anthony Hopkins has a great presentation for what merely is usually a card trick.

Hello,

The film the Dead Zone is worth a view as it's a good study of how mentalism might look.

"The "Amazing Mr X" includes a fake medium. From memory, one rather impractical method is shown. https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0040829/

My recommendation is

Psychologist Margaret Matheson and her assistant study paranormal activity, which leads them to investigate a world-renowned psychic who has resurfaced years after his toughest critic mysteriously passed away.

Stars: Sigourney Weaver, Robert De Niro, Cillian Murphy

"Hanussen" (1988)
And there's a show I found on YouTube while searching for a "Colombo" episode (but I can't fond now!). It's about a mentalist committing murder, and is very "Colombo-like". I'll keep on searching.

Murder by natural causes. Good movie. It’s on YouTube. I learned about it just this week as the lead actor passed away.

Nice, I think it was created by the same team that did Columbo.

Children of the D***ed - sequel to Village of the D****ed. Both scary as hell! The former was remade in the 90s.

The Wizard of Oz, where Dorothy meets up with Prof. Marvel, just before the cyclone hits. The crystal ball scene is a (brief) example of cold reading. style.
