"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.

"Re-watch It popped up on my Netflix recommendations. It wasn't as good as I remembered it, but I really enjoyed the neo-noir aspects of it. "

my painful to read 2019 movie diary (12 movies items)

" Johnny Depp has the emotional range of a cardboard box. In this movie, we are subjected to endless closeup shots of his expressionless face. Demons? Sluts? Fire? It ain't no effect on him. This dude annoys me to death I couldn't tolerate him in this movie jfc. Probably Polanski's worst movie that I've seen yet. Just an absurd and boring plot idgaf about, random naked bitches, supernatural stuff that isn't developed enough on, a horrible twist ending and other cliches. The only reason I'm givi"

70 MORE Underappreciated Horror Movies (70 movies items)

"With the exception of "Rosemary's Baby", Roman Polanski's contributions to the genre go largely ignored or tucked away into cult status. A real shame considering their dead-on grasp of the cerebral slow-boil. In "Ninth Gate" Johnny Depp is a man in search of an ancient tome said to be the means to summon the Devil himself. Intrigue and otherworldly interference ensue. "

TDcore's Horror Journal 2018: Pt. 3 (50 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"
