    May the Devil Take You

    ★★★★

    Evil Dead meets, er, Indonesian Evil Dead and damn homie, the congress of the undead, not zombies, but the undead, keep fucking with Chelsea Islan as Alfie. A Faustian bargain goes all well and then it's time for Harry Angel to know, but this time there isn't a Louis Cypher to tell him, only the ugly as fuck puss-boils on the face and body and black vomit, pouring down into an unwitting character's mouth, are some of the flourishes of…

    'I ain't got no quarrel with the Viet Cong... No Viet Cong ever called me nigger' - Muhammad Ali, 1966

    From Sgt. Elias (Dafoe), the hippy 'Nam veteran carrying his XM177E2 like a cross, to Lerner's (Depp) lump in the throat - that flashes by - after witnessing a war-crime, to the hardened and menacing Sgt. Barnes (Berenger) giving a career high performance with a face with more battle scars than natural features.
