The DevilÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Chair is an awesome ride into insanity. The story is about a group of students and their psychology teacher (David Gant) who returns to the scene of crime of Nick West (Andrew Howard), who is the witness to an unsolved murder of his girlfriend/love interest Sammy. The scene of the crime is in an abandoned asylum called Blackwater. But this is not an ordinary asylum. Suddenly they caught in a mortal danger and the criminally insane Nick is their only hope for survival. This movie is well acted, imaginative, and comes with quick and well placed wit and a great example of what can be done on a meager budget
Like it's name sake throw it into the nearest ocean. Hailed as groundbreaking this film noire for me was hard to watch. It involved lots of catchy, wordy dialogue mixed in with a nonsensical, non believable plot - throw in the arch nemesis (who looks like a crippled version of Dark Shadow's Barnabas Collins) who by the way is selling drugs from his mom's basement. This was not a great choice of roles for Joseph Gordon Levitt, but I guess not every movie is gonna be 500 Days of Summer material.
