Editorial Reviews

This cutting-edge thriller stars William Baldwin (FAIR GAME, SLIVER) as a seductive mass murderer who meets his match when he encounters a sexy young woman named Gabriela (Angela Jones -- PULP FICTION, MAN ON THE MOON), assigned to clean up one of his crime scenes. But when she literally uncovers crucial evidence linking him to the crime, the killer pursues Gabriela only to discover that she shares his disturbing fascination with murder! Uniquely original, CURDLED is a hot-blooded thriller with unpredictable twists and a shockingly memorable climax!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best special features ever! March 8, 2004
By Cyn
Format:DVD
This is the same fun, quirky black comedy that all the other reviews mention. Thankfully, the DVD is letterboxed, and has truly extensive special features; among them:
* Commentary by the director and producer (co-writers Reb Braddock and John Maass),
* a making-of featurette complete with brief interviews with cast and crew,
* the 30 minute short film that caught Quentin Tarantino's attention at a film festival in Italy,
* the even shorter 'Baby Curdled' - a film school directing project by John Maass,
* an extensive photo gallery mostly consisisting of candid shots of the cast and crew,
* deleted scenes and an alternate ending,
* the original theatrical trailer,
* by far the coolest interactive menu - watch for the fly!
* the commercials and made-for-tv movie that are seen in the film,
* the 'dance of death' rehearsal - you have got to see this!
* probably more than I'm not recalling
Most features have an introduction/explanation by director Reb Braddock.

5.0 out of 5 stars Only for the morbidly amused July 19, 2005
By Ms. WB
Format:DVD
Angela Jones is terrific as the big-eyed, gum popping Gabriela who's been obsessed with bizarre deaths since she was a skinny little gum-popping girl. Now an adult, she still collects articles about grisly deaths and decides to work for a "cleaning company" in order to get an insight and thrill cleaning up after murders and messy deaths. She's terrific with her slightly prim flowered dresses and fascinated nodding as she listens to gory details. Billy Baldwin is funny and charming as the boyishly handsome serial killer who first woos, then stabs his rich victims. Daisy Fuentes and Mel Gorham, a terrific and underused actress (Smoke and Blue in the Face--Oggy's girlfriend), have bits as Gabriela's coworkers.

This is a dark, dark comedy. Not because it's ironic or mean spirited in the way that Friends and Neighbors is or In the Company of Men, but because of the plot and subject matter; you find yourself liking the killer and laughing about people dying and Gabriela's slightly fetishized fascination. I think the film's a gem, but, there you go. There was one point in the film where, though amused, I was slightly queasy. If you are squeamish and don't think there could ever be anything remotely funny about serial killers, then I'd skip this one. If you collect Dia de los Muertos figurines and think the macabre is interesting and entertaining, then you might agree with Gabriela--death can be funny, creepy, absurd and interesting. This is one of the films on my "enjoys dark comedies" meter, along with The Last Seduction and Goodbye Lover.

If you do get it, don't forget to watch through the credits--funny bit at the end that I missed the first time. And if you aren't a huge Tarantino fan, don't be put off by his introduction to the film, credit where credit is do--the guy was instrumental in getting the film made and you can always fastforward.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Funniest Film Noir Ever January 4, 2002
Format:VHS Tape
Do you ever pick up one of those movies at the video store and say, "Wow, this is going to be so terrible that I just have to see it!" Well, I do, and that's exactly what I said about "Curdled". I was so wrong - this film is fantastic! Originally a short film, Curdled struck Tarentino like lightning and he promptly urged (forced) Braddock to make it into a feature length movie. I would not ordinarily apply such a cliché phrase as "wickedly funny" to anything, but that is exactly what this film noir is. Gabrielle (magnificently performed by Angela Jones) is teetering on the brink of an obsession with serial killers. Her consuming desire to understand the mind of a murderer motivates her to land a job with a post-murder cleaning service. Her new occupation allows her the opportunity to get closer to the crimes than she had anticipated. This film is out of this world, if you don't mind the sight of blood and laughing at crazy people, that is. I giggle sadistically to myself even now at the thought of it. Oh yeah, William Baldwin is in it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Thick Blood January 21, 2001
Format:VHS Tape
If you enjoy quirky dark humor, disdain media's macabre obsession with murder and mayhem but find it all rather fascinating despite yourself, and don't get queezy at the sight of blood - lots of it, then this movie delivers. William Baldwin, a bit creepy anyway, is a particularly creepy serial killer. Angela Jones' innocent, wide-eyed ghoulish lust and studiousness over accounts of gruesome murders is hypnotizing. And when the movie has ended and is rewinding itself, Angela's character should have assuaged any guilt you may harbor over your own small weakness for watching films like this or reading about grisly goings-ons.

5.0 out of 5 stars A head turner August 8, 2000
By Bob
Format:VHS Tape
"Curdled" stars Angela Jones (as Gabriela, who keeps a scrapbook of newspaper stories about grisly murder) and William Baldwin (as Paul Guell, the Blue Blood killer, who beheads Miami socialites). Quentin Tarantino produced the movie, and it's got a "Pulp Fiction" feel to it, but it's also got Gabriela – A woman who turns heads and makes her gruesome obsession seem like a sweet pastime. We're glad for Gabriela when she finds her perfect job. Hired by a forensic cleaning service, she mops up after violent crime. One evening, Gabriela returns to the scene of an especially bloody murder and retraces the events of the crime, when suddenly she stumbles into the Blue Blood killer himself. Naturally, the two of them tango.
