Faust, Love of the Damned [DVD] [2001]

Director Brian Yuzna, creator of Bride of Re-Animator and Return of the Living Dead 3, returns with the comic book-based horror movie Faust: Love of the Damned. Presented in 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen, Faust: Love of the Damned looks very good for a straight-to-DVD title. Colors are generally bright, with black levels solid. Slight amounts of edge enhancement are present in some scenes, but overall the image quality looks very good. Audio is presented in Dolby Digital 5.1 and, while not overly impressive, is still a lot of fun. Creepy effects and music are all evenly mixed, with no distortion present. Also included on this disc are English, French, and Spanish subtitles. Faust: Love of the Damned reaches into the depths of its supplemental features and comes up with two commentary tracks, one by director Brian Yuzna and another by actor Andrew Divoff, cinematographer Jacques Haitkin, and special effects team Screaming Mad George. Both commentary tracks tend to be very chatty and informative, with behind-the-scenes information and anecdotes. Also included on this disc are theatrical trailers for Faust: Love of the Damned, The Dentist, The Dentist 2, Return of the Living Dead 3, and Proginey.

Synopsis

Faust: Love of the Damned
A man goes to hell and back to avenge the death of the woman he loves in this over-the-top horror story. Troubled artist Jaspers (Mark Frost) is depressed and considering suicide after his girlfriend, an illegal alien, is killed by thugs. Before he can go through with it, Jaspers is visited by a mysterious man calling himself M (Andrew Divoff). M, which is short for Mephistopheles, is an earthly emissary of the Devil, and along with sexy Claire (Monica Van Campen) and devious Dr. Yanamoto (Junix Inocian), he leads a Satanic cult called the Hand. M and his companions persuade Jaspers to join the Hand, and soon Jaspers and other members of the Hand wreak vengeance by staging a mass murder against the men responsible for the death of Jaspers' lover. But Jaspers finds he quite likes ritual murder, and his enthusiasm leads to sloppiness that gets him arrested; he also becomes involved with Claire, which makes him very unpopular with M. As police detective Margolies (Jeffrey Combs) and psychiatrist Jade de Camp (Isabel Brook) try to get some answers about Jaspers' strange and deadly behavior, Jaspers begins to transform himself into a demonic beast in a desperate battle to defeat M before M can kill him. Faust, Love of the Damned was the first feature from the production company Fantastic Factory, formed by American filmmaker Brian Yunza and Spanish financier Julio Fernandez; the film was shot in Spain with an English-speaking cast. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
