Format: DVD
God Told Me To vies fair to be Larry Cohen's most outrageously adventurous film, with a pitch mixing random murderers, alien abduction and Catholic guilt to create one of the most anarchic B-movies ever. Many of Cohen's scripts work around a big inversion (a health food that eats you, a cop who's a psychopathic killer, a baby so vicious it's the parents that need protecting) but at the heart of this one is a zinger of a question that seems designed to drive Cardinal Spellman and the Moral Majority into apoplexy: if Jesus was an alien, what if He was also a mistake who accidentally turned out good when He was really intended to be bad? Tony Lo Bianco is the cop who suddenly finds himself caught up in a series of random killings that see mild-mannered sons climb water towers and do their best Charles Whitman impersonation with a sniper's rifle, family men kill their wife and small kids and Andy Kaufman's cop start shooting in the middle of the St Patrick's Day parade. The common factor? All are not just calm but in a state of euphoric bliss, all display uncanny accuracy - even with a rifle with misaligned sites - and all say that "God told me to." While the rest of the department take it for mass hysteria, he takes it rather more seriously. Being the kind of Catholic who sneaks away to church when his girlfriend is asleep and blames his failure to get a divorce on his more than willing ex-wife (Sandy Dennis, excellent in her two character-driven scenes) so he can go on happily feeling guilty about his infidelity, he's not going to like where the answers take him, especially when he tracks down a mysterious long-haired figure seen with the killers and guiding their hands but who leaves so little trace that witnesses can't remember his face even while they were staring directly at it.Read more ›

Ramdom murders are occurring all over New York, committed by formerly sane people from all walks of life. What's going on? Well, God told them to do it! Only messed-up Catholic cop Tony Lo Bianco can get to the bottom of this very strange case.

That's the premise of this bizarre film by genre-twister Larry Cohen. It starts well and then gets weirder and weirder and weirder...

It's a satire! It's a mind-shredder! It's unclassifiable brilliance!

Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
When a Charles Whitman-esque sniper in a rooftop water tower kills a group of New Yorkers, Detective Peter Nicholas (Tony LoBianco) is called to the scene. He climbs up the tower to find a nonchalant young man called Harold Gorman perched in the sunshine. Before he jumps to his death Harold tells him “God Told Me To.” Directed by Larry Cohen (Maniac Cop, It’s Alive), God Told Me is perhaps one of the best low budget horror movies of the 1970s. It follows Nicholas as he discovers a string of bizarre crimes where the only motive seems to be ‘God Told Me To’, and becomes convinced that a much bigger conspiracy is behind this series of events. Part police procedural, part paranoid religious thriller and part science fiction, Cohen’s film makes every penny of its low budget work. Guerrilla filmaking techniques, such as filming as a NYC St Patrick’s Day police parade, add to the sense of authenticity (said scene also features the film Debut of Andy Kaufman as a deranged cop). Recommended.

By Colonel Decker on 20 April 2012
Format: DVD
God Told Me To really did take me by surprise at how good a film it was.
The acting is brilliant and it has been directed very well by Larry Cohen.

This is quite a genuienly creepy and unsettling film at times. Though Cohen movies are also known to
go completely in a wild crazed different direction and this film does not escape this.

But alas there is just too much to like about this film to be too negative on it. The opening scenes are
brilliant and the movie has the power to keep you gripped throughout, that alone is well worth the four stars.
