A fortune teller family, a heroine with a train wreck of a life, and all the secrets and obstacles that will drive Wile E Coyote and the Road Runner to euthanasia, Dangerous Fortune is a train wreck of a spectacle.

The Bennetts are psychics, and they are always being bullied and ostracized by the town folks. Why they just won’t bloody move or do a Carrie and burn the whole miserable town down is beyond me. In this gloomy town lives Sela Bennett, who is sure that the whole world is conspiring against her because everyone she loves seem to croak most miserably.

Never mind. Sela’s aunt, the obligatory dotty old bat, asks architect Ben Russell to restore the town church. Why, since the church definitely doesn’t like the Bennetts, is again something only characters in romance novels can comprehend. He sees Sela and oh, the attraction! Sela, however, starts shrieking that she is cursed, jinxed, evil, hexed, et cetera.

All the young and old Bennett clan crowd around her. There, there, Sela, you are a fine and lovely girl, so shut the hell up and kiss that man, dummy. Sela shrieks louder.

Meanwhile, secrets pile up and obstacles pile up too until this is like the second return of Salem’s Lot.

All I can think of, at the end, is that for a woman with psychic powers, Sela sure doesn’t know how to pull her head out of her bum. What a waste, really. People like me who buy lottery tickets don’t get psychic powers, but that ninny has spades of ’em. Life sucks, I tell you.
