5.0 out of 5 stars masterful debut from New Zealand's Scott Reynolds Aug. 10 2006
am a big fan of director Scott Reynolds. With only three feature films to his credit (so far) he has proved himself to be a real talent to watch out for. THE UGLY is his first film, and for a debut, its a doozy. The plot is something that will sound very familiar to fans of the genre (outsider comes to institution to interview serial killer) but the story isn't really what THE UGLY is about. THE UGLY is about style--and by that i do not mean a berserk Tony Scott-like attack on your senses; no, Scott Reynolds knows that style is something that can't be forced.It must be married to the appropriate material; well, here all of the flash cuts and temporal dislocations are part and parcel of the serious mind-trippin' this film engages in. Some people have complained about several loose ends and ambiguities --are the Visitors real or only imaginary? and what is up with that creeeeeeepy doctor?--but I thought that added an extra layer of unease to the whole film; after watching it I find it staying with me.... poking around the edges of my consciousness.HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

5.0 out of 5 stars Chilling and Captiveting! April 21 2004
I just picked this movie up today at a used bookstore. A good friend of mine is a Horror movie fan and I thought it would be fun to watch it. Judgeing it by it's cover, it looked like just another gory slaher flick filled with blood and a paper thin plot. Boy am I glad that I dished out the $8.50 to add this to my collection. The acting is a little shaky at times but the acters are able to pull off their characters very well. The beauty of the film is it's abiliy to make you feel sorry for Simon who is the intagonist of the film. The film documents Simons tortured childhood and oppression by his cold,domineering mother. His childhood has Simon suffer from extream dementia and visual hallucinations(or are they?) in the form of the "Uglies". The Uglies come in the form of mutilated gouls who taunt and urge Simon into committing gastly murders with a razorblade. The movie doesn't pull any punches with it's delivery and is shot beautifuly with what I'm sure was a limited budget. "The Ugly" will easly make my list of best horror movies along with "The Ring" and "The Shining". If your a fan of Horror this is with out a doubt a must see.

5.0 out of 5 stars So Ugly it's Beautiful Oct. 8 2003
Had it not been for some very favorable reviews on Internet horror sites, I might never have gotten past the schlocky cover art, which makes New Zealand director Scott Reynolds's second outing "The Ugly" look like just another generic monster movie mash.
"The Ugly" is anything but.
Let me give you an analogy: imagine a "Silence of the Lambs" where Clarisse Starling's initial interview with Hannibal Lecter goes poorly, and Lecter breaks free---with a razor blade.
Magnify that nasty little outcome by a thousand. That, my friends, is what this grim, gruesome little charnel-house of a movie delivers, and, remarkably, on a shoestring budget.
The plot, much like "Silence of the Lambs", is about psychologist Dr. Karen Shoemaker (played admirably by Rebecca Hobbs, who makes Jodie Foster's Special Agent Starling look like a piker), who visits vicious young serial killer Simon Cartwright in an insane asylum, where he is held in solitary confinement pending his trial.
She wants to speak with him privately, free from the brooding, watchful stares of his sadistic jailers (played creepily to the last by Shane Bessant and Steve Hall, both of whom added immeasurably to my viewing enjoyment) and the brooding inquisitiveness of asylum director Dr. Marlowe (played by Roy Ward, who is so quietly bizarre that he qualifies for a movie all by himself). She wants to probe into his mind. She wants to gain his trust. She wants to unfetter him, take the shackles off this civilized savage, probe deep into his sick little brain.
And a sick brain it is indeed---Simon Cartwright makes Hannibal Lecter look as sane as George Plimpton.

By Guido
Once again I can thank the Boogeymen DVD for introducing me to this film. This movie is one of the best horror/thriller movies I've seen in years. It's powerful, extremely intelligent and especially unique. It is the quintesential thinking man's horror movie.
The Ugly is unique in the fact that it takes us inside the mind of a serial killer and why he's driven to do such unspeakable things. Paolo Rotondo is magnificent in his role as serial killer Simon Cartwright. The plot is especially rich and deeply interesting. It will keep you off balance and continually guessing. Simon seems to be a shy young man with a troubled past. People constantly making fun of him and spitting all over his existance. Well he gets his revenge to say the least. But why does he do what does? Enter Psychiatrist Dr. Karen Schumaker. She believes she's getting into the mind of Simon and what drives and motivates him in killing his victims. He is very convincing and seems very honest but is this just an act? Is she getting inside his mind or is he getting inside hers?
This movie is not a typical slasher film, it has no demons or supernatural beings, but it is incredibly chilling in the fact it seems very believable. It has just enough blood (the black blood of New Zealand) and will startle you here and there. This movie will be added to my collection and if you have the pleasure of viewing "The Ugly" I'm sure you will add it to yours too. It is an "Instant Classic"
