Trivia

Jeremy Leven wrote the screenplay for this movie. This movie is loosely based on his novel, Satan: His Psychotherapy and cure by the unfortunate Dr. Kassler, J.S.P.S. Besides featuring the devil and a shrink, the only real similarities are the names. The names are the same, but they play completely different parts. See more »

Quotes

Ty Adams: Do you believe in the Devil?
Nurse Danza: Of course I do, I work for him.
Ty Adams: All right, well, if you could ask the Devil one question, what would it be?
Nurse Danza: It would be, why do the doctors around here insist on driving me crazier than the patients do?
Ty Adams: Nevermind.
Nurse Danza: Okay.
Ty Adams: Sorry.
Nurse Danza: Fine. I'd ask him why he spends all his time punishing sinners, that he's supposed to adore, to make a point to a God, that he's supposed to despise.

Out of the ordinary
28 January 2008 | by (Connecticut) – See all my reviews

CRAZY AS HELL takes the good old JACOB'S LADDER approach in a novel direction. A famed psychiatrist (the always likable Michael Beach) arrives at a state mental hospital, called Sedah. He has a different approach to treating the mentally ill: He talks to them, which puts him at odds with hospital director Ronny Cox, who believes strongly in medicating and if necessary restraining them. At first, Beach seems to have some success with his approach. Then a new patient (director Eric La Salle) arrives, calling himself Satan. It's all downhill from there. While all this is playing out, a film crew is filming a documentary on the famed shrink. At one point, they catch him talking to himself when he thinks he is talking to someone, and this is a major tipoff as to what is actually going on, and what's to come. Think of the hospital's name in reverse, and you'll get it. Hell, think of the movie's title and you're bound to get it. The ending is inevitable and a real downer, sort of like a Twilight Zone episode. And a lot like JACOB'S LADDER and CARNIVAL OF SOULS. But don't let this put you off from watching it. CRAZY AS HELL is that rare gem: a TV movie worth watching. It is well acted and directed, occasionally suspenseful, and La Salle keeps things moving along at a decent clip.
