Overview

Director Brian Yuzna, creator of Bride of Re-Animator and Return of the Living Dead 3, returns with the comic book-based horror movie Faust: Love of the Damned. Presented in 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen, Faust: Love of the Damned looks very good for a straight-to-DVD title. Colors are generally bright, with black levels solid. Slight amounts of edge enhancement are present in some scenes, but overall the image quality looks very good. Audio is presented in Dolby Digital 5.1 and, while not overly impressive, is still a lot of fun. Creepy effects and music are all evenly mixed, with no distortion present. Also included on this disc are English, French, and Spanish subtitles. Faust: Love of the Damned reaches into the depths of its supplemental features and comes up with two commentary tracks, one by director Brian Yuzna and another by actor Andrew Divoff, cinematographer Jacques Haitkin, and special effects team Screaming Mad George. Both commentary tracks tend to be very chatty and informative, with behind-the-scenes information and anecdotes. Also included on this disc are theatrical trailers for Faust: Love of the Damned, The Dentist, The Dentist 2, Return of the Living Dead 3, and Proginey.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
Goethe's epic Faust has been made into more than 50 films, but this certainly must be the only one featuring a scene in which a woman's breasts inflate around her until her face is barely visible above the quivering flesh. Clearly, this one is based on a (very) graphic comic book series, not a confusing, wordy, literary roadblock. In this case, the Faust of the title is a nutcase who winds up with The X-Men's Wolverine razor hands and, near the finale, realizes 1) he's not a minion of the Devil sent to cut up innocents; he is the Devil and 2) bad guys make far more satisfying targets. Once Mark Frost dons the red rubber devil garb and turns into a version of Him from The Powerpuff Girls, he becomes more superhero than monster, which rather confuses the protagonist/antagonist tension that's required for a satisfying resolution. Not that this matters to kitchen-sink director Brian Yuzna, who is going for the same arch and camp franchise possibility he stumbled onto with Re-Animator; the story is spliced up like the ingredients in a Cobb salad -- the very definition of "meandering" (flashbacks will do that, you know). On the other hand, horror fans will find much to their liking if they can get used to a demon who spits out very funny one-liners like, "I make such a mess when I play," as he stands amid the gore of a freshly butchered victim. The editing is so stroboscopically kinetic it makes The Crow look like slow motion. Check your brain at the door and eat up this grisly eye candy.
