2.0 out of 5 stars Nice dvd artwork, 15 July 2012
This review is from: Psychosis [DVD] (DVD)
A horrible Frankensteins monster of a mess with the salvaged remains of various Hammer productions and 'Screamtime' appropriated, put in a blender and the desiccated remains haphazardly spliced together.
The film begins with the murders of a group of eco-activists out in the woods but what should have been a pivotal part of the film was quite poorly directed with bad camera angles and little passion.
God was the rest of the film clunky. Charisma Carpenter (Susan) did ok with the mess of a script but oh my what she must have thought of her opposite and screen husband 'David' He was so wooden that a whole skip-full of Carpenters couldn't have assembled him into a passable actor. The guy who played the creepy gamekeeper was pretty good but the implausibility of the script let the performances down time and time again. Him exposing himself to a distraught Susan out in the woods was no obstacle to her agreeing with hiring him then her having an evening one-to-one dinner with him whilst her husband was away. Susan had previously experienced a mental breakdown so giving the director carte blanche to continually insert silly hallucinations which asides from at the moment didn't have much more of an emotional or psychological impression on Susan until the decision to wrap up this sorry mess was required.
Featuring the obligatory bath running with the water looking like blood scene and randomn medium/seance scene this was a largely pointless but nonetheless not wholly unentertaining mish-mash of much better fims and television productions.
Not deserving of being an 18 either which shows how prudish the film censors in this country are to sex scenes.
