Review: Fantastic horror Ken Russell “Altered” is a visual philosophical parable about finding yourself and life values, a desire to learn and sense of wisdom and ignorance, even where there is no clear boundary between good and evil.
Not standard on the basis of their film draws from the first minute, surprising his emphasis on a variety of items. The attention paid to the fiction, and romantic lines, and the inner world of the main character, and then jumping to the psychedelic atmosphere and pressure, replaced saturated eerie visuals transformations, mutations and just a variety of atrocities, most often in the case of animals. So that members of the “green” this movie is not recommended, the rest in the presence of interest and appropriate viewing age – without fail.
Catchy visuals full of various effects, expressive runs from the plot outline. On a visual here the main focus, and the film manages to capture the attention it is due to the action unfolding on the screen. Download and successive pictures of hallucinations and visions that encompassed a variety of metaphors, rituals and mythical picture of hell, with a bunch of creepy monsters eye, pouring rivers of blood, violence of volcanoes and ferocious indomitable energy, striking the inside. Memory of their ancestors, or the animal? Film versatile enough for many here to see a variety of things, interpreting the creating in front of them in a different way. Symbolism, psychology, self-discovery – all closely intertwined eerie patterns on transforming the body to horror.
Referring to the depths of his own mind, the main character opens the door inner beast, animal nature and uncontrollable rage. After all the surreal paintings and erotic scenes before us there savage, unable to control himself, and lost his own “I”. Wolfman, frantically rushing to inhospitable world, struggling with a hostile entity or possible aggression toward him, seeking food and lost not only in the world of modern technology, reason and logic, but also within himself, falling into the deep abyss into hoping to gain knowledge or to get out deeply buried memory of the incarnation of mankind.
Convincing the acting allows the characters are imbued with all sorts of feelings. William Hurt was even nominated for the “Golden Globe” as the breakthrough of the year, and in the film he is laid to the fullest. Bob and Charles Belaban Heid are in the film is very similar in appearance friends and colleagues Hurt character, but resemblance Valais act out quite different and interesting in its own way. And if we talk about the cast, yet at the same time we can say that there is Drew Barrymore first role in a big movie, but it’s clearly not worth buying: just bit parts, without any reasonable camera angles on her person and the complete absence of any role to the plot. So if you really take her early work, the “ET”, “Cat’s Eye” and “Firestarter” deserve more attention immensely.
Yet the story is no longer focused on the excessive drama endless introspection, and the horror elements and the wildness of their appearance. And at the same time and impressive makeup on visual part. All scenes leather mutations can cause tingling and turn into hideous grimace, creepy-looking scenes using high-quality make-up gain is extremely realistic features and make fully believe what is happening, and occasionally appearing graphics for all its simplicity successfully complements the surreal visions of footage, as well its impressive visual part .

Thus, the film captures not only the rapidly saturated visual content and variety, but also because of the sound design stages and the project as a whole.
Dominant interests in life might lead to hell, and all you need to know the measure and the dosage, as in the pursuit of knowledge and discovery, you can easily lose yourself and your loved ones, forgetting that in the world of violence, corruption and indifference always beats strong and true love can do incredible miracles. Chic and perfect horror film, a work of art entitled loudly called a masterpiece!
