"Nothing is more reliable than a man whose loyalties can be bought with hard cash."

I picked up a copy of The Ninth Gate and viewed it solely for the presence of Johnny Depp.

Depp is an accomplished actor whom I admire. He always chooses his film roles with great care; hence I was ambitious to see this one.

Roman Polanski is also an acclaimed director... read more

It was good. No, it was great. I just was kind of expecting more from a Johnny Depp movie.

The plot was original and creepy. Not so much scary, but it was more a thriller and had a spooky vibe to it. Basically Dean Corso, a rare book hunter who is hired by a demonologist to track down the other two remaining copies of a book he owns to examine them and authenticate his copy. Little ... read more

La curiosidad, el querer saber del mal, cuando no se esta preparado para ello puede ser el fin o el comienzo, siempre he dicho que uno debe conocer de las obras y armas y herramientas del mal, solo conocer para evitar no para usar, porque el mal consume más rapido la esencia de la personas que un virus

An all-expenses-paid international search for a rare copy of The Nine Gates of the Shadow Kingdom brings an unscrupulous book dealer deep into a world of murder, double-dealing and satanic worship.

TDcore's Horror Journal 2018: Pt. 3 (In Progress) (14 movies items)

" This was Polanski's return to the horror genre, for the first time since "The Tenant", and it's quite difficult to think of reasons why it should've failed. We have a classic story, fantastic director, impeccable cast and top-notch writing, but even all of this isn't quite enough to make this the film it should've been. It's very subdued for a thriller, and though there's plenty of death and violence, there's hardly even any bloodshed. This isn't a problem, really, as the atmosphere and acting"

Movie Reviews (351-400) (50 movies items)

" I really like the concept of unlocking dark Satanic mysteries in old dusty books that no one has read and it all feels like a cool supernatural film noir and I love this atmospheric slow horror movie. Great actors and the women look gorgeous. It may lack any real surprise and the final shot feels like an afterthought that you either will love or hate, but I liked it. So send me to hell. "
