  1. FISCHER's rating of the film God Told Me To

    La première partie du film est franchement superbe et puis, tout s'étiole dans un salmigondis éthéré et "lumineux" entre Grand-Guignol et mascarade. Dommage, on reste sur sa faim (fin). Mais l'originalité de Cohen est intacte...

  2. Nick Schwab's rating of the film God Told Me To

    Many decades later, God Told Me To is easily one of the most chilling films that you can ever see. The staging of the grim mass murder scenes rationalized by the film title are extremely eerie in this day in age of mass shootings, terrorism, and the white washing of history by rich, straight-white males of privilege. A strongly written, disturbing attack against the hypocrisy and control that religion creates.

  3. Rocco's rating of the film God Told Me To

    In many ways, this film is patently silly, but the quotidian nature of Cohen’s camera and the low budget (usually more of a distraction than an asset) add an unnerving sense of realism. Peeling back the layers of this B picture, one finds a profoundly sick and scary vision of a faith-starved America unmoored and adrift in the cosmic void. Cohen’s grim masterwork.

  4. kartina obskura's rating of the film God Told Me To

    (+) such strange and unusual mixture that works quite well together and has some rather beautiful visual solutions

  5. film_lies101's rating of the film God Told Me To

    Great concept and lead performance by Tony Lo Bianco. If the pacing was a bit better and the story tightened up, it was definitely be a classic

  7. Scorpio Velvet's rating of the film God Told Me To

    Strange mystery/thriller dealing with mass murder, religion, and alien abductions - only horror maverick Larry Cohen could create this cult favorite. Well-made filmmaking, interesting & chilling storyline, and Tony Lo Bianco gives a remarkable performance as a Catholic detective who digs deeper in these horrorific crimes. (Be sure not to hear that line in real life after seeing it.) Cohen's best to date.

  8. Michael Harbour's rating of the film God Told Me To

    A New York City Detective investigates a series of spree killings and finds a disturbing connection that unsettles his Catholic faith. Director Larry Cohen is known for genre mashing and rather loose storytelling. In this movie it works out to create a story of a man who loses his anchor, setting him adrift in a confusing world - driven to search for the meaning behind these random acts of violence.

  9. Nelson Núñez's rating of the film God Told Me To

    Un thriller serie B que parte de una premisa tan original como inquietante (un detective archicatólico investiga una serie de misteriosos crímenes masivos presuntamente ordenado por Dios). El desarrollo narrativo resulta algo torpe y confuso, pero vale la pena verla.

  11. ADZERTY's rating of the film God Told Me To

    Etrange mélange des genres ! Cela commence comme un thriller psychologique, tourne au film fantastique et tombe in fine dans la rencontre du troisième type... une curiosité de brocante à l'usage des cinéphiles !

  12. SPQRNH's rating of the film God Told Me To

    Très bonne surprise ! Larry Cohen fait beaucoup avec peu de moyens, dans une série B efficace, à vous filer la chair de poule. Tony Lo Bianco est parfait dans son rôle de flic mystique, et les images documentaires de New York ajoutent une vraie dimension à l'ensemble.

  13. msmichel's rating of the film God Told Me To

    A great genre script by Larry Cohen that follows a detective investigating a string of murders that the unconnected perps always speak the term 'god told me to' before dying. What follows is the detective's descent into religious fervour and his own history. Lo Bianco is quite good here as is the ever frightening Richard Lynch as the possible Christ figure. Say what you will about Cohen's filmography..he can write.

  14. Stephen Campbell's rating of the film God Told Me To

    Quite possibly the weirdest B movie you will ever see ,Larry Cohen is a genius
