The Ugly Photos

Movie Info

Respected psychologist Karen Schumaker (Rebecca Hobbs) travels to a New Zealand mental hospital to evaluate serial killer Simon Cartwright (Paolo Rotondo). The patient's debilitated mental condition has so far prevented him from standing trial for his crimes. But Schumaker's attempts to get through to Simon soon turn into something more sinister as the pretty young doctor comes face to face with the homicidal creature haunting Simon's soul, who is known as "The Ugly."

Audience Reviews for The Ugly

  • Aug 29, 2013
    By New Zealand's standard, this is a pretty decent film, but in reality, this is nothing but a failed attempt of mimicking X Files. The film was extremely confusing, nothing made any sense at all, the characters were all unconvincing, I don't understand anything that goes on in the film, I was pretty bored 30 minutes in. An NC-17 rating? Are you kidding me? There was not a single boob or decent gore, how can this get a NC-17 rating? Extremely disappointed to say the least.

    New Zealand shocker that kept me glued to the screen the entire time right up until its unsurprising and unimpressive ending. And then there's the black blood. Was that an aesthetic choice? Whatever the reason, it was annoying and distracting.

    Weird, but strangely compelling. Good viewing

    An amazing psychological horror film with possible supernatural undertones. Scott Reynolds has unfortunately completely disappeared after the Weinsteins screwed him on his next great film, Heaven, but this film shows the work of a great talent. A really well told story with strong performances and great directing. Stylish, without detracting from the film and bizarre without seeming forced this is one of the best "serial killer" films out there. Also, one of the few films where I actually do empathize with the villain (usually I could give a rat's ass about their reasons if they are a murderer) which makes the payoff so much more satisfying. Great film.
