Movie about psychic gamblers?

I’m pretty sure I saw this movie in the early to mid 80’s.  I suppose it could’ve been made as early as the late 70’s though.  I think it might’ve been on HBO or Cinemax but I could be mistaken.  It was about a pair of gamblers (man and woman) who developed some kind of psychic system to help them at card games.  They tried it at a casino and won big.  The casino owner didn’t appreciate it and had the man murdered.  The female found a bunch of recruits and taught them the psychic ability.  They all went back to the casino and used their abilities to clean it out and get revenge on the owner.  I keep thinking Linda Hamilton was the female but can’t find anything in her filmography that would fit the bill so I guess it might’ve been someone similar to her.  Thanks in advance for all your help.

Nazi Horror Film

In the mid 80’s I went to school with a kid from Germany.  He once told me about a movie that he had seen in which Nazi scientists were conducting experiments on prisoners.  They were murdering them in different ways to see if a particular method of death would result in the victim coming back as a ghost.  I never did get the name of the movie but I always thought the premise was pretty interesting.  Unfortunately I can’t give you much more to go on since I never actually saw the movie myself.  I can tell you I moved out of that state in November of 1984 so the movie had to have been made before then.  Probably by at least a few years.  Also, since my friend was German it may have been a German movie.  Thanks for any help you can give me!
