None of the film is as funny or clever as Cates and screenwriters Ron Marasco and Michael Goorjian ... seem to think.
Audience Reviews for The Mesmerist
Still on my Neil Patrick Harris Binge. I thought it was okay, I did find it funny in some parts which helped me get through the film.
Crazy and weird. I was disappointed to call the ending of this one. I was really hoping that the end would give this movie something so it wasn't a complete waste.
This film looks like it came out in 1982 rather than 2002. This is definitely the 80s version of "dark comedy" like Clue or something else equally silly. The acting is sub-par and the dialog is poor. It's pretty much awful, but it's based on an Edgar Allen Poe work so it does have some merit. If you're a fan of shitty low-budget 80s dark comedies you may enjoy this.
