Editorial Reviews

When John's girlfriend is brutally murdered, he vows to avenge her death any way he can. When the mysterious M appears and offers a solution, John hastily agrees and signs the deal, in blood. Suddenly, John has powers he can't even control, much less understand. The violent urges, the razor-sharp claws, the constant pain, and the pulsating scar on the palm of his hand--his constant reminder that everything has its price. Based on the graphic novel and cult comic by David Quinn and Tim Vigil, directed by Brian Yuzna (Return of the Living Dead 3).

3.0 out of 5 stars Faust: A Movie Watcher's Guide To Napping July 4, 2002
Format:DVD
Faust - Love of the Damned began in a very promising manner that made me think, foolishly, that this was going to be a really good movie. We were introduced to John Jasper, whose girlfriend had been murdered while he watched, as he contemplated his eventual demise above a rushing river. Enter "the mysterious M," a demon of supposed caliber (that later proves he is, at least, funny in a molten flesh kinda way), who offers John a way to avenge his lover's death. Well, Jasper accepts, is given some wolverinesque claws that he carves some people up with, is arrested by the fan-beloved Jeffrey Combs, and is subsequently put in a wittle padded room with a doctor that wants to musically restore his sanity.
Had the movie ended here, in the first few minutes, I would have been happy. It didn't, however, much to my dismay.
Without giving away anything about the loosely conceived plotline, a defect I can deal with, or some really bad (with the exception of J. Combs) acting, another flaw I can stomach, I will comment on the one reason F.L.O.T.D. found itself in the cutting room dumpster with every other movie that forgot that one small monster/demon movie rule. Always, no matter how creepy your storyline, how hideous your monstrous finale, or how paltry your budget, remember to invest a something in your main demonically enhanced character that allows him to at least look presentable. A foam suit portrayal of muscles, some posable claws, and a few red eye shots really did make me laugh at first, but the laughter ended after a while and the need for fast-forwarding the action sequences began. When demons are beheading people, you really shouldn't even have that type of reaction.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fans of the comic will not be disappointed July 3, 2001
Format:DVD
Based on the excellent Faust: Love of the Damned comics from David Quinn and Tim Vigil, this film version won't disappoint fans. Brian Yuzna has some decent horror films under his belt, many considered cult classics, and he is at the top of his game here. In his screenwriting debut, David Quinn does a surprisingly decent job, and Yuzna works well with it. Production values are low, as could be expected with a budget of $2 million, but it all comes together. I saw this film at an art house a few month ago, actually, and was pleasantly surprised, especially being a reader of the comics. The look and feel is relatively the same, and the overall style matches well. The graphic sex and violence will no doubt be cut a bit (or a lot...) in this "R" version, which pretty much guarantees an unrated/cut version in the future. Overall, Faust is a decent horror movie, with symbolism and style.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing December 13, 2003
By Tyche
Format:DVD
I was hoping for a faithful rendition Tim Vigil's Faust comic, which in and of itself is horror at it's finest. It saddens me actually to see such a great story as presented in the comic twisted in this way.
The acting is less than interesting, the only redeeming feature I found to this move was having Jeffery Coombs in it. For anyone that's a J.C fan he once again presents a character that is subtle and shakey, and yet just horrifying in his insanity. You got to love the guy. In addition, Isabel Brook ( Jane) has great legs, and we get to see them a lot.
Aside from these two points, I left the credits feeling very disappointed. I agree with a reviewer above that the comic should have been much more in the way of it's sexuality ( at least a light X ) and the drizzling insanity of Jasper should have been delved into much deeper. I wouldn't buy it.
And for gosh sakes, they don't even have Jasper quoting or singing 'Papa Has a Brand New Bag'. That was Jasper's trademark in the comic.

4.0 out of 5 stars It's good, comical fun March 7, 2002
Format:DVD
This movie is a very clever idea, and very well pulled off. This is based on an underground comic (what is that anyway) of the same name. The movie stars Geoffry Combs (Re-Animator) as a detective trying to find out why this artist just killed an entire Arabian Family (Very big family, and very rich). As it turns out the Artist tried to kill himself earlier but then sold his soul to a guy named M and was given these razor sharps claws (taken from the prop department of X-Mne) and he did what he was told. After he escapes he is betrayed and killed, only to come back in a bright red satanic looking DareDevil Costume and is know as the Super Hero Faust.
This movie is funny..., despite how seriouse it starts. It turns downright hillariouse. The costume alone will make you crack up. this dark comedy holds all the aspects of a typical horror film, gore, pointless violence, loads of nudity and [gratuitous] sex, yet it pokes fun at itself with the story. This would fit right in if your a fan of such classics (and not so classics) as Army of Darkness, Critters, or Ghoulies. This is definetly worth checking into, to say the least.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not nearly as bad as you've been led to believe. June 10, 2011
Format:DVD
Faust: Love of the Damned (Brian Yuzna, 2000)

The words "directed by Brian Yuzna" on a film are even scarier than the words "produced by Brian Yuzna" (q.v. The Nun, elsewhere this ish). Worse, I had no idea when I picked this up that it was a graphic novel adaptation, released at a time when the phrase "comic book movies" was defined by unwatchable Batman sequels featuring such master thespians as Jim Carrey and Arnold Schwarzenegger. And then I thought to myself, "it can't be any worse than Batman Forever. It just can't." And while I don't want to convey the idea that this is another Sin City, you know what? I was right. I've seen a number of bad Brian Yuzna flicks over the years; this one would vie with The Dentist as my favorite of his directorial efforts.

Plot: John Jaspers (Mark Frost, recently of the TV series Hope Springs) gets picked up and thrown into the loony bin, raving about people out to get him, where he meets psychologist Jade de Camp (Alone's Isabel Brook) and tries to convince her of the danger he's in. No go, unfortunately, and John is summarily dispatched by those very folks who were, in fact, out to get him. M (The Dead Matter's Andrew Divoff) mentions, as they're offing him, that maybe they'll go find that cute doctor. As so often happens in movies like this, Jaspers then decides to deal with a higher authority in order to get revenge (viz. Spawn, The Dead One, The Crow, etc.). Once he's back on the street, well, he starts getting it, while trying to conceal his recently-deceased condition from Jade, who's starting to fall for him, as well.

Yes, it's over the top, but Yuzna's over-the-top style does make for good comic-book mayhem, just as Burton's did in the original Batman film from the eighties.
