On the darker side: David Cronenberg - Scanners.

"There are 4 billion people on earth. (Uhhh, in 1981)
237 are scanners. (Interesting choice of number ;-)
They have the most terrifying powers ever created
...and they are winning."

Of course, the original Firestarter (1984) as well, and I don't mean Jay Sankey's DVD...

(Jerry already mentioned the 21st century version)

Also, with the same mentalism style as, yet much better than, John Edward: M. Night Shyamalan - Sixth Sense (1999).

Hello,

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

Regards


"The Dead Zone" is a brilliant movie.
