God Told Me To... 2003 Horror Movie Review
Horror movies Review
This film by Larry Cohen was very strange, I don’t think I understood what was going on the first time I watched it so I had to watch it again. A series of brutal murders are happening all over New York city and when the murderers are questioned they all admit that god told them to. Larry Cohen is known to make some weird low budget films but sometimes they end up being crap like It’s alive however this film turned out to be decent, it seems like the film mixes up alot of genres together like a detective thriller along with sci/fi and horror and I think that it really worked cause it has an interesting storyline. The detective in this film looks like he might be losing his mind since he cannot solve any of the murder cases including a case where a man who killed his entire family and then said god told me to, unfortunately the detective gets some bizzare leads that involve some alien abductions and some strange old woman who said that she has given birth to a child many years ago the only problem is that she was a virgin, like I said this film is very weird but somehow it does work even though some scenes just don’t make any sense like when his partner who is a crooked cop gets killed by a black gangster and the detective ends up losing his faith with god cause he thinks that all the violent acts were a sign or something. The film was original but it also seems to be all over the place, if it had a proper explanation to it then maybe I would have liked it better but still the film was average.
