Faust starts off with us meeting John Jaspers and Jeffrey Combs. Jeffrey Combs plays a police officer and he is about to enter an embassy building. We see blood coming out from underneath the doors. Jeffrey Combs enters the building to see mutilated corpses everywhere. Then he is attacked by John Jaspers who has claws emerging from his hands. Soon Jaspers is taken to a mental ward where he tells his story about what had happened to him to a doctor named Jade. His girlfriend was killed and as he was about to kill himself a mysterious M came and made a deal with him to be able to avenge the ones he lost. Once Jaspers decides to stop doing the killing for M, M burries him. Soon after Jaspers emerges from his grave with his claws, cape, and Batman looking mask to avenge his girlfriend, stop M, and save Jade.
I knew before I saw this film that it was going to be good. I didn’t expect how good it would be though. I had heard that it was going to be very gory and it definitely was. It starts out with severed limbs all over the floor. And the gore never stops. There is violence, blood, severed limbs, severed heads all over this movie. It had an End of Days feel to it, especially the final 20 minutes of it. This film is what you would get if Spawn, Wolverine from the X-Men, and Batman were to become one in a horror film. Mark Frost really brings the character of John Jaspers to life. The movie is very fast paced and the violence never stops. We see in this movie that everyone is on M’s side, even the police. The only person who is able to save Jade from M, who is played by Andrew Divoff, is John Jaspers. And he must do it in the most grousome way. This movie is probably the goriest movie I’ve seen to come out in almost 10 years. It’s action packed, violence packed, and it leads up to a good time watching this movie. Don’t expect to be scared by this film because that’s not what this film is for. It’s an action horror movie with buckets of gore. I give this movie a 9 out of 10.
