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, mush 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 a price.

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.

OVERALL: Quite a terrible movie, but terrible in all the right ways if you're in the mood for gory, silly, deliciously bad horror. It's moderately smutty and often disgusting. You've been warned...

A rule-breaking police officer (Jeffrey Combs; Lurking Fear, Doctor Mordrid, Would You Rather) crosses paths with some sort of music therapist after our Faustian protagonist makes a deal with a white-haired euro-trashy fiend and is granted Street Fighter II Vega wrist blades to avenge the death of his murdered immigrant girlfriend. Sounds like somebody got snubbed at the 2001 Academy Awards for Best Screenplay, doesn't it?

As the mysterious near-albino Mephistopheles figure, Andrew Divoff (Wishmaster, Lost) is deliciously ridiculous and I struggle to rationalize his hair. But trumping the lunacy of his hair is the rampaging melodrama and varying sound quality. More Oscar near-misses, no doubt.

Faust breaks the Devil's rules and is sent to Hell, which he promptly escapes by defeating an animated skeleton. I know, the scene wasn't very inspired and I'd imagine evading damnation would have posed a greater challenge. Moreover when he emerges he is like a demonic superhero complete with cape, latex muscles, and silly CGI transformations. This is, after all, based on a comicbook. It's tone yo-yos between clearly deliberately silly at times, and somewhat serious at others. The finale pits our Faustian inverse-hero against a ritually summoned Hell beast.

There's a good amount of action, all being of awful cheesy execution. But that's to be expected when you have topless women slitting throats mid-coitus and women in bras beating men up.

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.

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.
