I went in thinking that "Hexed" would be something enjoyable, but at the same time forgettable throwaway. Yep it was sprightly, but never unmemorable thanks to the neurotically psychotic female fatal performance by the stunning Claudia Christian as an international supermodel with a murderous streak, which Arye Gross' unlucky hotel desk clerk character eventually finds out. This is one surprisingly good, twisted black comedy with moments of overstated cruelty and hilarious activity in the theme of the boy who cried wolf as the line between fantasy and reality becomes blurred. Matthew Walsh is a geeky hotel clerk who is tired with the life he leads that he feels the need to embellish it with tall tales and outrageous lies that no one takes seriously, but this comes back to hurt him when he becomes secretly involved with mega-star model Hexina. What seems like a harmless dream coming true turns quite dangerous when he learns her true identity and dead bodies begin to pile up. Now who is going to believe him? It might be a one-idea joke, but there are visual gags aplenty in a cartoon-like tone, clever Hitchcock touches and the tidy script is humorously sharp with the banter. The support cast are just as kooky with raucous turns by R. Lee Emery, Normal Fell, Ray Baker, Michael E. Knight and the lovely Adrienne Shelly. Frenzy comic-laced entertainment.<br/><br/>"How many f*cking men do I have to kill in this f*cking town."
