Trombones of the Apoplexy
1 July 2004 | by (Tampa, FL USA) – See all my reviews

This movie is a pathetic mystery/thriller with anti-drug and anti-hippy overtones. A slightly interesting premise (a drug that forces you to commit suicide when you hear a certain piece of music), that is completely ruined by a director with no eye for suspense or drama.

The characters are developed terribly and it is impossible to care about anything they do. The mystery is only slightly engrossing and the payoff at the end of the movie is only heightened due to the extremely dull buildup.

Ohhhh, I urge you, do not watch this drivel. If this ever gets a proper American release, AVOID it at all costs.
