Movie Info

This provocative, highly atmospheric horror movie tells the tale of a young girl who is terrified that her insane mother will take her away from her beloved foster mother. One day, the crazed real mother attempts to contact the girl at school, but her foster mother has a premonition and gets there in time to protect the girl. Eventually though, the real mother and her terrifying boy friend, a carnival clown, succeed and whisk her away, leaving the bereaved foster parents to enlist the assistance of a parapsychologist to help them interpret the foster mother's terrifying dreams and psychic connection to the girl and find her before it is too late.

Critic Reviews for The Premonition

All Critics (2)

Whether all this seems a marvel or a muddle may well depend on the individual viewer - but from its mime-act opening to its concert finale (with murder, mystery and mayhem in between), The Premonition is certainly a curio.

While it is not a masterpiece, it is not an outright failure either. It exists in a metaphysical zone all its own.
