This dramatically shaky contest of wills only reiterates the old Hollywood saw: Evil is interesting and good is boring.
| Original Score: 2/4

A bit too derivative to stand on its own as the psychological thriller it purports to be.

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.
| Original Score: 1/4

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

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.

A great ending doesn't make up for a weak movie, and Crazy as Hell doesn't even have a great ending.

'Crazy as Hell' leaves viewers with something to think about after the screen goes dead and the house-lights come on.

Perhaps no picture ever made has more literally showed that the road to hell is paved with good intentions.

Utilizing lots of complicated, well-choreographed steadicam shots, La Salle directs with confidence -- this may yet be his true calling.

Despite its flaws, Crazy as Hell marks an encouraging new direction for La Salle.

A psychological thriller that doesn't really hold up if you think about it too much, but is nonetheless highly entertaining in a low-budget, David Lynch-ian way.
| Original Score: 3/5

A fairly engaging, if overly simplistic, comic thriller.
