This movie rules!, 20 February 2003
Author: bodyshots80 from Houston
This is a stupid, spoof like comedy. But it's pretty funny. There are no big name actors really but a lot of familiar faces. I couldn't stop laughing when I saw this and don't understand why people hate it so much. I guess too many "Titanic" and "Lord of the Rings" fans are voting for it. Oh well, this movie kicks ass. If you like this check out Repossessed. It's another underrated spoof that made almost no money.

I'm a hexed-nut., 16 March 1999
Author: Film Dog from Shawnee, KS
Hmmm...I seem to be in the minority here. Judging by the IMBD votes this
film wasn't very popular. I usually vote a tad lower than the average, but
for this one I was way off the scale on the high end. That's because in my
opinion, for a low-budget movie, it's quite a surprise. Many plot twists,
very unpredictable. OK, maybe it's not that there are no Oscar performances,
but what do you want from a comedy? Laughs. And this film really is quite
funny. Plot revolves around a habitual liar who says he knows a female sex
goddess and has to save face when he's called on it. Definitely worth a

this movie is an undiscovered gem!, 25 June 2005
Author: tomcastlebury from United States
I can not believe there are so many people dissing this movie! I found it by accident, and I rent it every time i can find it! i hear it is finally coming out on DVD, and i couldn't be happier! this movie is totally hilarious! the absolute funniest sex scene ever! (if i ever meet a girl who does this, i think i would shoot myself!) I would highly recommend this movie to anyone breathing with a sense of humor! It is one of the best "black humor" comedies ever made. As someone else pointed out, there are no big name actors or actresses in this film, but there are a lot of familiar faces. The bottom line is, from the screenplay down to the acting, this is one funny movie!

Are you Hexed?, 25 May 2002
What's wrong with you people?
Is everyone crazy? This movie is hilarious. At the time I voted, this
thing had a 4.4 which is way too low. It is not best picture and has
no best actors but among the genre of modern comedy (which is
horrible), I give this an 8.
They should put this out on DVD tomorrow.

Tremendous fun, Great Twists, 24 May 2005
Author: Joe_wilger from Whittier, CA, United States
I saw this with my wife about 5-6 years ago.
We rented it because I was on my Claudia Christian phase. (Still am, but that is another story...)
Claudia was also in The Hidden - a classic sci-fi / horror film.
I've been recommending this movie for years.
Today, I found out that it was written by Alan Spencer, the Creator, and writer for Sledge Hammer!
Very screwball, about a liar's fantasy gone bad.
Enough comedy, and enough storyline to make you forget that there is a method to the madness.
Now I double recommend this film - no wonder it was so great! Enjoy!

Quite Brilliant., 22 December 2004
Author: PHASEDK from Hertfordshire, U.K.
I have now seen Hexed on TV twice.. and one was heavily edited, very annoying. SO..I have been after the DVD ever since, no joy.(since released) Hexed has everything.Humour,action,titillation.. how could one not have that with Claudia in it. Shes brilliant. Babylon 5 did her a favour in the UK. I may be a science fiction nut, and proud of it. It may not be everyones humour, much of the comedy in the UK now isn't to my taste, but this film is exceptional.I want to see it again to remind me.Claudia tends to be totally over the top but it works.Shes totally mad and looks like she enjoys every minute of it. And why not.In Babylon five she was a responsible officer, so it was good to see her let her hair down.

Very Underrated Comedy!!, 24 February 2004
Author: xanadu2300 from North Carolina, USA
This is one of those movies that never got the appreciation that it deserved. Most of the humor is very tongue-in-cheek, and it has some of the best lines and visuals of any comedy from the late 80's early 90's era. One of my favorite lines comes from Det. Ferguson (Full Metal Jacket's R. Lee Ermey) when he is questioning a witness and tells her that he has all the night to wait because "I'm divorced and have no charisma." This movie is chock full of satire and subtle jokes that you will probably not get until long after the movie is over or upon a second or third screening. Treat yourself to this movie if you want to see a light comedy with some very funny moments reminiscent of some of the great comedies of the 30's and 40's. (fans of this genre will hopefully understand my meaning after seeing this movie)

pure hilarity!, 18 February 2003
Author: babyfarmer2k2 from Chicago, Illinois
I think this is one of the funniest movies that I have ever seen. I was laughing throughout nearly the entire movie. C'mon people, this movie is funny!! Where is the love, why is the rating so low?? the drill sergeant from Full Metal Jacket is a riot.

One of the best comedies EVER!, 3 February 2006
Author: DameFlux from CA
This is without a doubt one of the best comedies ever. Brilliant acting
by Claudia Christian , who holds nothing back from her portrayal of
Hexina, the nutbar serial killer/model. Arye Gross is the liar Matthew
Welsh who stumbles into becoming Hexinas lover and accomplice. Despite
the ratings here on IMDb , trust me, this film is brilliant. Sharp
direction by Alan Spencer (Sledgehammer ) just makes this film an
absolute delight. IMDb gives clues to why this is not of the highest
budget but don't let that throw you.
"The budget and shooting schedule for was slashed by the studio one month before principal photography was set to begin. Rather than abandon the green lighted film, director Alan Spencer drew from his background in TV, forged ahead and completed the movie in thirty days."
Incredibly , this cast delivers everything and more. A treat for sure, check this out on DVD. If you can't enjoy this you have no sense of humor.

"I'm little bit of a liar.", 22 January 2012
Author: lost-in-limbo from the Mad Hatter's tea party.
I went in thinking that "Hexed" would be something enjoyable, but at
the same time forgettable throwaway. Yep it was sprightly, but never
unmemorable thanks to the neurotically psychotic female fatal
performance by the stunning Claudia Christian as an international
supermodel with a murderous streak, which Arye Gross' unlucky hotel
desk clerk character eventually finds out. This is one surprisingly
good, twisted black comedy with moments of overstated cruelty and
hilarious activity in the theme of the boy who cried wolf as the line
between fantasy and reality becomes blurred. Matthew Walsh is a geeky
hotel clerk who is tired with the life he leads that he feels the need
to embellish it with tall tales and outrageous lies that no one takes
seriously, but this comes back to hurt him when he becomes secretly
involved with mega-star model Hexina. What seems like a harmless dream
coming true turns quite dangerous when he learns her true identity and
dead bodies begin to pile up. Now who is going to believe him? It might
be a one-idea joke, but there are visual gags aplenty in a cartoon-like
tone, clever Hitchcock touches and the tidy script is humorously sharp
with the banter. The support cast are just as kooky with raucous turns
by R. Lee Emery, Normal Fell, Ray Baker, Michael E. Knight and the
lovely Adrienne Shelly. Frenzy comic-laced entertainment.
"How many f*cking men do I have to kill in this f*cking town."
