This Film Gives A Basic And Overdone Plot, Provides A Somewhat Mediocre Script And In The End Works Great As A Time Filler. Sadly This Is Average, Mainly Because I'm A Fan Of Crime Drama's And This Is One I Wouldn't Worry About Not Seeing If Your'e A Big Crime Fan.

Even ignoring the dub, I felt the acting was a bit flat, the plot a bit stale, and the action, while intense, was unimaginative. Some of my concerns probably stem from comparison to the animated 2006 French film "Renaissance" by director Christian Volckman, which is also a cyberpunk noir in a dystopian future Paris. That film was far more visually interesting, wasn't quite as predictable, a far better dub, and married the cyber to the noir quite nicely. This film, on the other hand, just figured if everyone was depressed and the visuals were completely unsaturated it would somehow also fit the same sub-genre. Not so. I needed so much more. And whether it was intentional or not, the "twist" was visible from a mile away.In any case, "Chrysalis" had a lot of potential but sadly didn't deliver. The core conceit was a nice idea and I almost wouldn't mind a remake to potentially do better. I'm trying to decide if my difference in opinion with some of the other reviews here just has to do with the fact that I'm a die-hard cyberpunk fan (as well as a noir fan) and this didn't live up to expectations... but it might also have to do with the fact that I refuse to forgive stupid writing. I don't care that the film was French, no cop in any situation would have loaded guns in an interrogation room and willingly free a dangerous prisoner from his bonds... you completely lost me at that moment.

Al M (it) wrote: Despite being a direct to video release, Castle Freak is an amazingly creepy, disturbing, and twisted piece of horror that is another small gem in the Stuart Gordon ouevre. While not quite as spectactular as Re-Animator, From Beyond, or Dagon, Castle Freak manages to create a dark, gothic atmosphere filled with depravity. Also, despite its rather unoriginal premise of a boy forced to grow up in a cell and becoming a monster, Gordon manages to create real characters with a tragic backstory who continue to experience their tragedy in the present. Nine month before the film takes place, John (Jeffrey Combs from the Re-Animator films and From Beyond) killed his todler son and blinded in daughter in a drunk driving accident. Nine months later, John has quit drinking, no longer sleeps with his wife, and inherits a castle in Italy. But the castle harbors a dark secret, and this secret man/monster begins to haunt the castle with his unsatiable desires. Slowly, John's bleak life begins to unravel even further. As a new tragedy dawns, the wounds of their previous tradedy begin to resurface. Ultimately, Castle Freak is a film about tragedy and guilt and how they haunt and form our identies while also being an awesome haunted house film.
D M (it) wrote: Edward Furlong (T2/American History X) is kinda loner/loser kid who receives a mystery CD-ROM in the mail. The disk contains a virtual reality game in which you act as a killer. Upon playing the game, it causes the release of an evil demon named Trixter which commands the player to do actual killing. I was surprised at how bad of a job Furlong did in this. Also, Trixter was not scary, only annoying and the rest of the movie sucked for the most part also.

R Treybian P (gb) wrote: GRRRRR!!!! What was this?!!! This wasn't good. While as fun a ride as 2009's Star Trek was, this lacked any real imagination or originality. They had a chance to tell a real story here, but inside the took a path that ultimately made this a real disappointment. There are parts in this movie, that really pissed me off. I like Cumberbash, but he wasn't Khan- nor did he need to be. He could have simply been another of Khan's people from the Botany Bay. But if they were insistent about doing Khan, they really should have gone with Benecio Del Toro, and told a WAY more cerebral story, and pit Kirk's experience against Khan's intellect. Instead we got Cumber-Khan, a warmonger Robocop, and the most asinine plot I've ever scene. Please, Mr. Abrams, Mr. Orci, Mr. Kurtzman, & Mr. Lindelof don't do this shit again.
