Hollywood has used the theme of psychic powers for many of its big blockbusters. While it is known that many Hollywood stars consult with psychic mediums, some have tried playing psychics in movies as well. These types of movies show that not only is there a big interest in Hollywood about psychic phenomena, but there is also a big interest among the general public. Many of the films below had big box office takings and while they may not be 100% true stories, it does show that many of us are interested in something beyond our physical realm.
The Gift (2000)
The plot of this movie revolves around a woman with extrasensory perception (or ESP) who is called upon to help solve a young woman’s mysterious disappearance. As quite often happens with movies, art imitates life and the inspiration for this film was most likely the numerous cases of psychics being used to help police – especially with cases of missing people. In this fictional account, the hero of the story is a local clairvoyant who is haunted by constant visions relating to the victim.
The Men Who Stare at Goats (2009)
On the surface, this may be a seemingly light hearted look at psychic abilities, but truth can be stranger than fiction and it is based on a true story. The book (of the same name) that inspired the film concentrates on the American Government’s, and more specifically, the CIA’s obsession with psychic research. The idea was to harness peaceful psychic powers for military purposes. This is a great comedy and also an interesting exploration on the American military and their interest in psychic research.
The Sixth Sense (1999)
This film was a box office success that explored the psychic abilities of a young boy who is essentially a ‘medium’. That is, he can speak to who have passed on from the physical realm – the most famous line from the film is “I see dead people”. The film has some big plot twists so we won’t give away too much in case you haven’t seen it!
This now cult classic starring Patrick Swayze, Demi Moore and Whoopi Goldberg deals with a popular theme for Hollywood – life after death. The plot of the movie revolves around a now deceased man (Patrick Swayze) trying to get in touch with his Partner (Demi Moore). A psychic medium comes to his aid to try to convince the sceptical Demi Moore that her dead partner really is communicating with her.
