Overview

A psychiatrist confronts a new client whose problems may not be all in his head in this drama. Dr. Ty Adams Michael Beach is a well-known psychiatrist who has earned no small amount of controversy for his blunt and "anti-medicinal" approach to treatment. Adams is also dealing with some emotional problems of his own after the death of his wife and child. Parker John C. McGinley, a documentary filmmaker, has arrived at the hospital where Adams works to make a movie about his work, just in time for Adams to start working with a new patient -- a mysterious and angry fellow known only as "The Man" -- who insists he is Satan Eriq LaSalle. The new patient is not easily convinced that he's delusional, and as he becomes a greater disruptive force, Adams can't help but wonder if maybe the stranger is telling the truth. Crazy as Hell was directed by actor Eriq LaSalle, who plays the new patient and is best known for his work on the television series E.R.; it was his first theatrical feature, after helming the made-for-cable Rebound.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
Eriq La Salle's directorial debut is a beauty despite the transparency of the "surprise" ending. The always-fine Michael Beach, La Salle, and cagey veteran Ronny Cox give superb interpretations of the tight and intelligent script that somehow remains suspenseful and coherent, overcoming an intentionally jumbled structure. The slick, polished visuals glide over a talkative second act that is stolen by La Salle's smooth-talking, infinitely charming, and utterly satanic Satan, which is cause enough to watch. Not perfect, but impressive, and psychological and occult thriller aficionados will find this less ponderous and much smarter than usual.
