Editorial Reviews

Inspired by the true story of the Serial Killer who terrorized Northern California during the sixties and seventies. His use of cryptic symbols and coded messages fueled the police and media frenzy and made him one of America's most notorious unsolved cases.

Customer Reviews

This is seriously the worst movie I have ever seen!
Chris C.
Must have been produced to capture money from confused viewers who think they are going to watch the movie Zodiac (like me).
J. Maraz
This atrocity was apparently set in 1978, and dealt with the Zodiac Killer taunting some writer for reasons unknown.

In a word (well, two, actually): it sucks! That being said, "Curse of the Zodiac" was marginally better than Lommel's previous flick about the Zodiac Killer. This atrocity was apparently set in 1978, and dealt with the Zodiac Killer taunting some writer for reasons unknown. He is still killing, but unlike the real Zodiac Killer, Lommel's version stalked only women and killed them by putting his gun in their mouths and pulling the trigger; it is a matter of fact that the real Zodiac Killer never did anything remotely like that. It's also a matter of fact that 4 of the Zodiac's 7 known victims were actually male, and he was never known to stalk and kill lone women, but then, facts don't seem to be anything that Lommel cares about.

The Zodiac harasses some writer a lot with phone calls, and cusses quite a bit (as mentioned in previous reviews); if all of his cussing were edited out, half the movie would be gone. It's apparent that Lommel has no talent for writing (or directing, for that matter, since he doesn't appear to have invested in anything other than his camcorder that he doesn't know how to use very well), since he couldn't think of anything else for the Zodiac to say. This flick itself was pretty pointless, it didn't seem to have any direction at all and I wondered the whole time where it was going. After it was over, I wondered why I even sat through it (I actually fell asleep two or three times, and the parts I missed made no difference at the end). I will say this, however: the heroine, played by Cassandra Church, is pretty cute, and it does look like she was making an effort unlike most of the others, who gave the impression they were making up the dialogue off the tops of their heads (and, if that's the case... what dialogue did Lommel actually write???).

This movie proves if you have an old raggedy bulky camcorder, a mixer, some keyboards, special effects, and some sorry excuses for actors/actresses that you can make a stupid crappy homemade horror film! The self-proclaimed Zodiac keeps calling the police station and antagonizing the cop and calling him "Fat f*ck" after everything he says. To keep a long story short, take my word and save your time, money, and your eyesight. Do us all a favor and discontinue this one! If you want to see a real film about the Zodiac, watch either "Zodiac" or "The Zodiac". At least in those 2 films they cover events as they happened in real life.

I rented this thinking it was "Zodiac" with Jake Gyllenhaal, Mark Ruffalo, and Robert Downey Jr. It was not. And this is about the most difficult to watch movie - told from the perspective of the killer. If you insist on renting this movie I suggest you drink a a fifth of scotch and watch it while doing a headstand. Then...maybe...the movie might make sense.

So bad you'll be cheering the murderer.

I totally agree! This movie was garbage! One horrible detail is the fact that a lot of the scenes are shown at a 90 degree angle. The ground or floor is over on the right side of the screen. It is like a stupid camera man turned the camcorder to a verticle angle while recording, then when they were editing the film and saw that the image was on it's side, they just said "So what? It will be fine that way." It definitely does look like some 9th graders made it for a high school project - and did a horrible job. The acting is so fake and stupid. The plot is also very very very boring. This is seriously the worst movie I have ever seen! They also say the F word a lot more than any other movie. The killer says "...you fat F***" or similar things hundreds of times. One last point, the gore... when the Zodiac kills a person, they always show a disgusting view of the dead body with a lot of blood. They show things like the person's brains blown out onto the pavement next to her head or the killer sticks his fingers in the bullet holes in the persons head and plays with it! Gross!

Ulli Lommel must be stopped. I don't care what he might have done in the 1960s; the man is, quite simply, the worst filmmaker on the face of the Earth. Lommel isn't a director - he's a serial rapist of cinema. Look no further than his string of painfully bad serial killer films, featuring the likes of Black Dahlia, Green River Killer, and BTK Killer. Curse of the Zodiac, though, really takes the cake. I don't know what you call the polar opposite of a masterpiece, but that's what this film is. Maybe you're thinking a movie about the Zodiac's bloody legacy can't possibly be mind-numbingly boring - and you would be correct. Unfortunately, this movie isn't about the real Zodiac killer at all. You see, the mere facts of any real serial killer case just aren't good enough for Lommel - oh, no. Never mind the fact that the Zodiac killer held the San Francisco Bay area a virtual hostage for years with his chilling murders and cryptic communications. Lommel just makes up a bunch of nonsense, deluges the whole thing with artsy fartsy crap and hopelessly amateurish cinematography gimmicks, and probably believes he's giving us amazing insight into the mind of a killer. He makes what is arguably the most sinister killer since Jack the Ripper look like a two-bit thug. Honestly, if I were the Zodiac killer (and I'm not, by the way), I would seriously consider turning myself in to the authorities just so I could sue this pitiful excuse of a filmmaker for liable.Read more ›
