Foet is very true to the original short story by F. Paul Wilson, one of my all time favorite authors. The short story was named Pelts, i believe, and this adaptation for the screen is faithful. Pelts on the other hand was not faithful at all, was annoying to watch and really without much in it to recommend (other than some good gratuitous nudity). Foet though is a great mini-film, a really nice introduction to Wilson's writings, which are thought provoking and entertaining all at the same time. In the end, both the film and the story remind us how quick we all are to sell out our souls for temporary pleasures. Also, look for Wilson in the restaurant scene (sitting behind the actress who holds the forbidden fruit!).
