A sick, artsy-fartsy movie,
This review is from: Eye of the Beholder [VHS] (VHS Tape)
*Eye of the Beholder* is the story of an obsessional psychotic, led to distraction by constant visual and auditory hallucinations of his lost daughter, following the murderous trail of a female serial killer, who changes wigs to seduce men and kill them, before crying out hysterically "Merry Christmas daddy!"
A fan of Brian De Palma's voyeuristic films (from *Dressed to Kill* to *Blow Out*, *Body Double* and *Mission: Impossible*), I rented this cold, obscure, depraved movie for two dollars, expecting something completely different. Not wanting to let good time run after bad money, I quit after 30 minutes, regretting the unpleasant experience more than the two dollars.
If you like the disturbing, nihilistic nightmares of a David Lynch or a David Cronenberg, this movie might be for you, though.
