Product Description

There are some contracts you shouldnt sign...

Witness the terrible fate of man who sells his soul the devil for a shot at revenge in Faust, another twisted slice of raw imagination from Brian Yuzna (Society, Beyond Re-Animator).

John Jaspers was an artist and a happy man until some thugs snuffed out his girlfriend... Now hes been driven near insane with the need for vengeance. Aid comes in form of M, a mysterious figure who offers him the help he needs for a price... His mortal soul. Jaspers is transformed into a horned demon whose only emotions are the need to slay and the drive to murder.

Out of control and out of his mind, the demonic Jaspers cannot be stopped until his lust for the kill is satisfied and those who wronged him have been ripped to bloody pieces...

Format: DVD
Some films succeed by showing us characters and situations we all feel a certain familiarity with, allowing us to identify with and learn from the people and story; other films succeed by showing us things that we will never see in real life - for example, a beautiful but evil woman having her chest and bottom expanded by black magic to the point where they consume her body, and she is basically a giant blob on the floor with a harrowed looking face. I've never seen that happen in Tesco. As you might have guessed, Faust is the second kind of film. If this is your taste, I can't imagine anything much better. The religious ceremony at the climax is a particular treat, the sort of demented scene that might once have been created by the great Ken Russell (though not quite up to his high standards, it has to be said). Yes, the acting is completely over the top, the story is bizarre yet predictable (though many of the stand-alone scenes which are included purely for the joy of the visual they present us with are far from being expected) and the production values aren't exactly Hollywood standard, but the joy of film is present in every frame. The sheer gusto with which it is made carry it through and turn it into a triumph of insane spectacle. Where else would you get to hear a classic line like: "I cleaned the blades, but they want to get dirty again!" Go on, try it - you'll love it.

Fans of the comic will appreciate the difficulty of translating the full gory, sleazy glory of the original to the screen. An animated version might have perhaps remained closer to the knuckle but this live action version doesn't do a bad job.
The film recounts an abridged but quite accurate rendition of the comic's narrative, the main difference being that the story is told more or less in a straightforward chronological order, a minor departure from the comic's more cut-up, heavily-flashbacked sequence of narration.
The production values of this film could be characterised as B-film but such is the nature of horror films. Either way they don't detract from the film's enjoyment and, in addition, the acting is quite compelling.
The John Jasper character especially: the demonic enjoyment the character takes in his slaughtering of criminals and cops alike is well captured, notably in one scene where he gives a proper film-romance kiss to the decapitated head of an unfortunate villain.
Gore is delivered, as one would expect, but not in greatly intricate detail. There are quite a few nice gothic moments and a fair amount of lasciviousness but the full twistedness of the source doesn't quite make it to the screen. Nonetheless, it's still a very pleasant/unpleasant way to spend a saturday afternoon!
This is a must-buy for fans of the comic. For general fans of horror, it is a decent addition to the collection. For more general viewers, it provides an interesting though possibly schlocky retelling of one of the great myths of western culture.

This is a really terrible, terrible Motion Picture. The direction is inept beyond belief and the acting on the most part is appalling!

Mark Frost is a bad actor, I mean really bad. Every line that he delivers is off the mark somehow and his facial expressions or contortions are hammy and ridiculous.

Jeffrey Combs over acts extraordinarily and gives us a caricatured portrayal of the wisecracking hard nailed cop that has been parodied frequently. His first scene with the music therapist is vomit inspiring!!!

Monica Van Campen gives the only performance of note in this picture. She is a talented actor and is the only one that transcends this awful mess.

It seems that some money was spent on the Production Design, Lighting and Camera. Yet all was for nought as what you see on the screen sucks. The editor needs to go back to film school.

They say you can learn more about making good movies by watching bad ones! In this case don't waste your time. It's just too crap!!
