Critic Reviews for Crazy as Hell
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.
The film is a verbal duel between two gifted performers.
Despite its flaws, Crazy as Hell marks an encouraging new direction for La Salle.
So much about the film is loopy and ludicrous ... that it could have been a hoot in a bad-movie way if the laborious pacing and endless exposition had been tightened.
Audience Reviews for Crazy as Hell
really good acting, but toward the end the movie began to fall a little short, it did not go for it as much as the film previousely had. and Eriq La salle was made his character come alive. The film make you think and gives you chills all at once.
A mediocre near-clone of Moctezuma's far superior "The Mansion of Madness" with a bit of ham-fisted theology thrown in for good measure, "Crazy as Hell" shows a good deal of promise early on but quickly becomes predictable, formulaic and a bit dull. It reaches for a Twilight Zone sort of twist at the end, but by the time we get there we've seen it coming from about a half hour into the film. The acting is passable and Sinbad, playing a pesky orderly, is suitably annoying, but it's a long trip to an all-too familiar destination featuring a couple of cut-outs as main characters. Eriq La Salle does have a couple of interesting moments as a man who truly believes himself to be Satan, but they're too few and far between to keep the film compelling. Not horrible, just not all that interesting. Comparisons to movies like "In the Mouth of Madness" are definitely a stretch.
A horrible splice between K-PAX and One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, but with the devil. Poorly acted, abrupt in its scences, closer to a related series of sketches on MADTv than a movie, and why was Sinbad in this?
