Trivia

In the original, there is no indication that Alan has any mental health problems. However, David Lee Fischer added the backstory to his reinvention of Alan that he was suffering from some kind of issue, for which he took medication. This gives a more rounded explanation of why he asks Cesare how long he has to live. See more »

Black Eyeliner Galore!
7 January 2019 | by donaldriccoSee all my reviews

I'm not sure if this was just a lark, or if I really did like it! So, I guess I liked it! It's cool that they used the original for background, and it did have the feel of an old time film. The makeup and lighting are phenomenal! But the acting is bad, and I think it's supposed to be. Still, it's bad. The plot of the movie is trippy, and it feels odd the whole time, making it a spooky/silly viewing. Still, it unnerved me a bit, especially the Dr. calling for "Cesare" in such creepy ways. Weird as heck movie!
