  1. Lights in the Dusk's rating of the film Spirits of the Dead

    The first two films are better than their reputations suggest; they just can't compete with Fellini's frenzied phantasmagorical Toby Dammit. An absolute tour de force of technical filmmaking anchored by a performance from Stamp that seems straight out of the silent cinema. Decadence, both thematic & stylistic, assault the senses as the character's burnt-out fatalism collides with a vision of supernatural retribution.

  2. emanuela's rating of the film Spirits of the Dead

    visto due anni fa, e a distanza di due anni, ricordo perfettamente i feels dati da federico fellini nel terzo capitolo di spirits of the dead. B.B con Delon una dea. Il primo di Vadim è quello che mi ha colpito meno come storia, ma visivamente quel gotico alla francese ci sta tutto.

  3. bulgrin's rating of the film Spirits of the Dead

    4 stars only for the Fellini part which is great in every point. I love Terrence Stamp's performance!

  4. samuset's rating of the film Spirits of the Dead

    Only rating Fellini's "Toby Dammit" segment here.

  5. FISCHER's rating of the film Spirits of the Dead

    Roger Vadim, comme de bien entendu, réalise le sketch le plus mauvais et Federico Fellini, l'adaptation la plus intéressante du triptyque. www.cinefiches.com

  6. Josh Tierney's rating of the film Spirits of the Dead

    Five stars and a heart for Toby Dammit.

  7. Luis Pires's rating of the film Spirits of the Dead

  8. Kelvin Thompson's rating of the film Spirits of the Dead

    2-3. Since so much has already been said about Toby Dammit, I'll instead say that, at least on paper, I think the Vadim short had more intrigue than William Wilson. As far as being visually scary, I don't think the Vadim or Malle shorts work as well as Toby Dammit, but the Vadim short is a much better demonstration of Poe's command over metaphor, while Wilson inverts the evil doppelganger idea and little else.

  10. bitchwitched's rating of the film Spirits of the Dead

    Let's pretend "Toby Dammit" is the only segment

  11. Ola Alansary's rating of the film Spirits of the Dead

    ***** for TOBY DAMMIT ** for the rest

  12. ceknklsn's rating of the film Spirits of the Dead

  13. Log Lady's rating of the film Spirits of the Dead

    Fellini's segment is such a visual feast, that the other two suffer from just being included in the same company. Seriously, it's the most colorful, atmospheric and powerful short films I've ever seen, and Stamp is perfectly creepy and sad in the title role. Malle's segment benefits from Delon's performance, and the story is quite good as well. Sadly, Vadim's is a throwaway. Tries to be decadent, but ends up dull.

  14. pattiocleavis's rating of the film Spirits of the Dead

    Toby Dammit boosts this from three to four stars.

  15. bibonoaozora's rating of the film Spirits of the Dead

  16. Siaudebert's rating of the film Spirits of the Dead

    Only for the third one of Fellini, that's quite a wonder ! The two others are between a bad Hammer type and fresco historical cinema

  17. Nelson Núñez's rating of the film Spirits of the Dead

    Las 4 estrellas van exclusivamente para el alucinante trabajo de Federico Fellini. Las atmósferas de Toby Dammit son embriagadoras.

  18. Adriano Rocha's rating of the film Spirits of the Dead

  19. Stian Gledje Bekkvik's rating of the film Spirits of the Dead

    Fellini's part is such a visual and atmospheric achievement, a must see. Malle's part is also fantastic. Vadim's part is pretty good, but pales in comparison.
