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.

Starts strong then peters out. By the time the weirdness kicks in, it's too little too late.
Small gritty exploitation from Larry Cohen that nevertheless tackles some awfully big themes. It sticks with you long after the credits roll.
It's like ZODIAC (2007) but with more...umph!
I really gave it a chance based on some great reviews. I'm sorry, no. no...no.
