5.0 out of 5 stars A "Coming from left field" type of flick. October 6, 2003
Actor Michael Beach of THIRD WATCH, WAITING TO EXHALE, and numerous other projects, portray a psychiatrist/doctor who knows everything about dealing with emotionally/mentally disturbed patients, but never caught a clue when his own daughter took her own life. Moving his practice, he's invited to work at a mental hospital and seems to have the answers for how to cure and/or control the patients, and is willing to do it his way, whether the director likes it or not. His pride being his biggest flaw, he meets his match with his latest patient, played by Eriq LaSalle. Dressed to the nines with a eloquent manner and speech, he addresses himself as Satan and wants to use the doctor's help in overhauling his image, because it's become a real drag in being the so-called "bad guy" in every disaster on this earth, no matter how big or small. From this point, the psychological aspects come in as to whether this guy is really crazy, or is he really the prince of darkness? What does he really want with the doctor, or is this a very elaborate scam? Truly, a thinking movie that runs deeper than the norm, and that made it a hit with me.

4.0 out of 5 stars LOST IN THE LOONEY BIN December 4, 2004
Director/co-star Eriq LaSalle's CRAZY AS HELL is an enigmatic, disturbing movie--is it a horror movie or is it a psychological thriller, or is it a little of both? It's pacing is more cerebral, and its plot thick with premonitions and suggestions. What is it with the hospital anyway? Patients are allowed to run loose in the halls. Patients acquire trophies and brooms. They are all on medication. Enter the idealistic doctor who thinks he can "cure" these people, take them off their medication, and send them all home. At this point, the movie has a surreal quality. Psychiatrists DON'T go into their patient's rooms and sneak around. Psychiatrists DON'T tell the patient why they are behaving like they are. The patient's rooms are like low budget motels, but still very well kept. And then enters the patient who says he's Satan. This is all shrouded in complex scenes wherein our good doctor starts talking to his dead wife and daughter. By the way, he is responsible for his daughter's suicide because he wouldn't prescribe her medicine.

Michael Beach plays the doctor with a smug assuredness, that belies a man who seems to be falling apart. LaSalle as Satan has the pompacity of Isaac Hayes, the swagger of Denzel Washington and the quiet menace of Tony Todd. Stalwart Ronny Cox plays the head honcho with his usual smarmy smugness, with an undertone of more. John C. McGinley as the director of the video is cleverly malevolent and conspiratorial. Tracy Pettit as the patient the doctor vows to cure and win a bet on, to boot, has little dialogue, but she has the vacant composure of a mentally challenged young woman.

All in all, CRAZY AS HELL is a very different kind of movie, one that might lead you to question YOUR religious predilections. Kudos to LaSalle for the innovativeness on such a low budget.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great movie! September 16, 2006
By mica
This was a really good film of which I knew nothing about before finding it while browsing through the shelf at the video store. Great dialogue from beginning to end. I don't want to spoil it for you, but it certainly gives some good insight on those with "God-complexes".

4.0 out of 5 stars the point is September 25, 2010
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
the point is not the writers understanding of mental illness-it is actually his/her understanding of the god complex some doctors succumb to. the dr is ironically battling his own emotional demons and while purportedly thoroughly understanding and trying to "treat" the societally recognized mental patients-failing miserably. i think it is a well thought out script, about people who think they have all of the answers trying to impress their ideas upon society while not having a freaking insite to their own failings and shortcomings resulting in them looking like complete idiots; you cannot make someone else whole if you are fragmented yourself -you need to have your own affairs in order before you start trying to "help" someone else achieve mental bliss and do not assume you have any idea what someone elses hell maybe or how they should deal with it because you have a piece of paper stating you are a dr.
excellent movie!

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome movie! Go out and get it right away! February 10, 2003
By K.M.
Format:VHS Tape
This movie was great with all of it's hidden meanings and ultimate plot turn. I don't want to give this movie away but Eriq LaSalle's performance is superb, along with this being his directorial debut, he takes you to this place deep inside your soul to experience the horror of denial, vanity, and inner ego. Highly recommend! Go out and see it.. you'll be talking about it for hours!

5.0 out of 5 stars Boring as hell? September 8, 2003
By A Customer
Um, this is a phsychological thriller, not a brainless action flick. It appears the reviewer missed the entire point and moral of the story. I won't give it away because I don't want to ruin it for those who are interested in an excellent movie that'll give you the chills, and really make you think at the same time.

5.0 out of 5 stars an unfortunatly unknown classic July 26, 2009
By ACP13
this had to be one of the strangest films i've ever seen. but at the same time one of the best. Ty Adams is a unconventional therapist whose unusual methods lead him to be followed by a documentary crew (lead by John C. McGinley) for 30 days at Sedah(hades spelled backwards). while there a patient enters the hospital claiming to be Satan. so begins Ty's downward spiral into insanity as he is unsure whether this man truly is the devil, or he himself is insane. the ending is spectacular. i highly recommend it to anyone.

Did not like it... did not make any sense to me. Some people may like it even love it, but it not my taste, so as far as my opinion I did not like it at all.
