God Told Me To
Directed by Larry Cohen
A cop investigates a string of murders committed by strangers who claim “God” told them to kill. But are the killers actually talking about the heavenly father? Or is someone pulling their strings? If Det. Nicholas (Tony Lo Bianco) really wants to know, he’ll have to descend into a netherworld of deranged faith and confront his own connection to a homicidal messiah with a perverse plan for the soul of mankind. Utterly original and deeply unnerving, Larry Cohen’s critically acclaimed cult classic is regularly cited as one of the greatest horror movies of all time.

I watch this just to see the part with Andy Kaufman
I got a mangina! You seen my downstairs mix-up. I'm Old Gregg!
Some nice ideas but not the greatest execution. Dated. That ending line and shot pissed me off/made me laugh pushing the rating from 2 to 3 skulls.
I love this film for the sheer amount of twist and turns.
Started out great. A high concept done in a gritty style. But by the final act it jumped one too many sharks and got muddled in its own absurdity. This is the type of film that should that should get a remake -- great ideas that just need a rewrite and not near-perfect classics where any revision is doomed. Four skulls with a six-pack (in other words, a 3.5 rating).
