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

Man: I want a soul.
Ty Adams: A soul?
Man: I like yours. Your passion, your devotion, your self-righteousness and God-complex, it turns me on like you wouldn't believe.

Fun, but too simple!
16 August 2011 | by See all my reviews

I'd never heard of "Crazy As Hell" before seeing it, but I watched it on a whim. It was entertaining enough to keep my attention, but I was kind of waiting for it to end. The film just lacked intensity, which was odd considering the subject matter. Sadly, it just kind of dragged and not a whole lot happened. It felt like a Twilight Zone episode that was stretched into a two hour film. And, like many old Twilight Zone episodes, it dealt with a very one-dimensional character with a painfully obvious character flaw (in this case: arrogance/ego). Our main character isn't all that likable and doesn't seem to have anything at stake, so why should I care what happens to him? There are a lot of not-so-subtle clues and symbols. Oddly, many of them seemed like plot flaws and turned out to be intentional later on. For example (without giving anything away) in first scene, Ty stops his car then back up and accidentally backs his car over a glass bottle right behind his tire - why didn't he run it over it when he first pulled up? I dismissed this as a movie mistake, but it actually made sense in retrospect. Like a lot of the movie, it was so simple and obvious that I actually DIDN'T notice it.
