My Thoughts:

Very good for a straight to dvd flick. John Hurt gives a strong performance and Joe Pantoliano is always great in the psychotic roles. I thought that Carrie-Anne Moss's character would have lent more to the storyline but as it turns out her role was little more than an afterthought.

I'd recommend it! :)

Deranged , a review by Jimmy




Title : Deranged (1974)

Overview
A man living in rural Wisconsin takes care of his bed-ridden mother, who is very domineering and teaches him that all women are evil. After she dies he misses her, so a year later he digs her up and takes her home. He learns about taxidermy and begins robbing graves to get materials to patch her up, and inevitably begins looking for fresher sources of materials.

My Impression
By the synopsis I think you see that it's a movie based on the crime of Ed Gein and not the only one since Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Psycho are also, but it was considered a long time for the most realist. The version I own is a bootleg because the dvd released by MGM in their Midnite Movies collection is cut and I can't stand butchered film. This film isn't too bad and even better it's a canadian production. Of course what make this film so good is the performance of Roberts Blossom in the title role, he sure show how Ed Gein was able to act in society and look like a nice but slow man. The other positive point is the dark presentation; nothing is beautifull here the sun doesn't shine and the movie print is dirty (as it is supposed to be). A journalist (kind of a narator) appear 3 or 4 times to explain the events and this is a little different but annoying.

Another good one.
