  1. Dan Kenneth Gigernes's rating of the film Cast a Deadly Spell

    I like the concept of mixing magic with film noir. Fred Ward look believable as private eye and the women look good. Some good atmospheric moments but the story has predictable flaws. Horror element used only as a comedic effect when it would have been a lot better treated seriously as the monsters are goofy. Still a kind of movie that I want to love.

  2. FISCHER's rating of the film Cast a Deadly Spell

    Jeu criminel et tortueux se déroulant dans les années 1940, avec des virées ésotériques, faisant des incursions dans la parodie, et des couleurs dignes des légendaires "comics" dont nous gardons vaguement un bon souvenir... www.cinefiches.comL

  3. xl's rating of the film Cast a Deadly Spell

    A great script and concept let down by the fact that it's still very much shot and performed like a TV movie. Still, once you can get past the rough edges, it's a damn good time.
