Daniel B (jp) wrote: Wow, Did this Suck! Why on earth does this exist. I heard about this long before it came out. A remake of one of my favorite films "The Devil and Daniel Webster" with Alec Baldwin playing the 'Jabez Stone' role and Jennifer Love Hewitt playing 'Scratch'. It never came out. I figured that it had been shelved for good reason and stopped caring about it, until one night when perusing the Netflix streaming movies saw that this was available to watch. I figured what the heck this can't be all that bad. Wrong. They removed the heart of the movie, made a clever recast to make the devil a woman (i.e. "Bedazzled", I was going to write see, instead I chose i.e. I don't want anyone thinking I endorse the "Bedazzled" remake). Jabez character is no longer a farmer but the closely related hard labor career of writer. Anthony Hopkins is the Daniel Webster, a famous publisher. Bad writing, shite direction, run of the mill cinematography. The Shortcut to Happiness here, is skipping this one.

Andrew H (nl) wrote: Wow...where do I start? Ok, this one was a bit of a slow burner. It didn't really give us anything we haven't seen before at first and the story was a bit...well...lame. But if you stick it out until the last half of the movie, there is a ridiculous fight scene that is well worth your time. I could watch that massacre for hours! I can honestly say that no fight can ever top that scene in terms of ridiculousness and hilarity.

Ricky M (us) wrote: More psychological stuff from Hammer, originally part of a double bill with Fear In The Night. This is certainly the better of the two films. The story of inncocent/childlike/plain Brenda and her move to London where she meets and ends up living with good looking Clive who we know is a serial killer. Sounds pretty straight forward but this is actually pretty disturbing as both characters live in very strange fantasy realities and form a kind of symbiotic relationship as the film goes on. It is in these scenes that the film is really effective. Rita Tushingham as Brenda is excellent and her presence, especially in the early scenes, does have a kitchen sink drama with a twist feel to it. I had a hard time getting into the first 20 minutes or so with some very fast intercutting and fragmented narrative but once this settles down it becomes a fascinating study of 2 disturbed, in there own ways, characters. There are many references to Peter Pan, the characters call each other Peter and Wendy as the film goes on. Bulids to a an understated but effective climax. Not in the traditional Hammer mould, but a film I really enjoyed.
