Movie Info

A psychiatrist confronts a new client whose problems may not be all in his head in this drama. Dr. Ty Adams (Michael Beach) is a well-known psychiatrist who has earned no small amount of controversy for his blunt and "anti-medicinal" approach to treatment. Adams is also dealing with some emotional problems of his own after the death of his wife and child. Parker (John C. McGinley), a documentary filmmaker, has arrived at the hospital where Adams works to make a movie about his work, just in time for Adams to start working with a new patient -- a mysterious and angry fellow known only as "The Man" -- who insists he is Satan (Eriq LaSalle). The new patient is not easily convinced that he's delusional, and as he becomes a greater disruptive force, Adams can't help but wonder if maybe the stranger is telling the truth. Crazy as Hell was directed by actor Eriq LaSalle, who plays the new patient and is best known for his work on the television series E.R.; it was his first theatrical feature, after helming the made-for-cable Rebound.

  • This dramatically shaky contest of wills only reiterates the old Hollywood saw: Evil is interesting and good is boring.

  • A morality tale whose thought-provoking potential is hampered by a made-for-TV look, rigid performances and an asinine 'twist' that brazenly rips off The Sixth Sense.

    Sep 27, 2002 | Rating: 1/4
  • The film is a verbal duel between two gifted performers.

    Sep 26, 2002 | Rating: 3.5/5
  • Despite its flaws, Crazy as Hell marks an encouraging new direction for La Salle.

  • An allegory concerning the chronically mixed signals African American professionals get about overachieving could be intriguing, but the supernatural trappings only obscure the message.

  • [Michael] Beach's performance... carries the film, particularly in the powerhouse ending.

    Good thriller in a crazy way the psychiatrist had taken on a bit more than he should of a real twist at the end.

    This was kind of a odd film. It stars Michael Beach as a psychiatrist who gets a new job at a mental ward. As brillant as he is he can't seem to figure out a patient played by Eriq LaSalle who states he is the devil. Things begin to happen and he questions his own sanity. Is this guy really the devil or is he just beginning to go crazy. The film has a interesting story. The acting is solid. There are times in this movie I found myself scratching my head. I guess that is why I gave it a lower rating. I might have to watch this again. But for now it was kind of hit and miss with me.
