Rating: 3/5 -- Not Cohen's best, but perversely fascinating
Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

Rating: 3.5/5 -- Though not among Larry Cohen's most wholly satisfying productions, God Told Me To should prove a worthwhile curiosity to fans of 70's era horror movies told with a decidedly 'cop flick' feel. Full Review

Possibly the Cohen joint that brims with the most all-pervasive invention and danger Full Review
CinePassion
Nov 19, 2010
Here the machinery of divine intervention is taken for a freaky secular spin via the familiar cinematic modes of urban realism and even science fiction, and a detective mystery becomes a mystery rite. Full Review

Rating: B -- Intriguing but exasperatingly uneven. Full Review

Rating: 1/4 -- There were times when I thought the projectionist was showing the reels in random order, as a quiet joke on the hapless audience. Full Review

Product Description:

Exploitation and horror master Larry Cohen, known for cult classics such as IT'S ALIVE and HELL UP IN HARLEM, as well as penning more commercial fare such as PHONE BOOTH starring Colin Farrell, presents this mystical murder mystery. A Catholic police detective (Tony Lo Bianco) searches New York City's occult underworld for answers to a series of bizarre and seemingly unrelated killings. In a strange twist, it's not the murderers themselves he's after -- they didn't even try to elude the law, and all are in custody. However, each had only four words to say when confessing: "God told me to." Comedian Andy Kaufman appears in a small role as a police officer who begins shooting in the middle of New York's St. Patrick's Day parade.
