HASH(0x97e40c90) étoiles sur 5 HORRIBLE DVD release of obscure Canadian occult mystery 6 mars 2004
Par e1x56u$*w# - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: DVD Achat vérifié
This DVD is of a little-known film made in Montreal in the early 1970s, starring a very young and beautiful Karen Black, Christopher Plummer and Quebec actor Donald Pilon. This film was often shown on TV in Canada throughout the 70s, and although I cannot call it a great movie, it does have a certain atmospheric quality to it which has stuck in my mind all these years.
This movie is one of a host of films that came out at around this time (see also: "The Devil's Rain", "Race With the Devil", "The Omen", "The Sentinel", etc.) which, influenced by the success of such films as Rosemary's Baby and especially The Exorcist, dealt with the theme of Satanism.
Police detective Plummer and his partner Pilon are called to the murder case of prostitute Black. We flash back to Black's final days, as clues gradually lead the detectives to a Satanic cult.
Plummer is good as the detective but the real star here is Black, who has never been more radiant, and who also sings the movie's hauntingly etherial theme song.
It's a pity that the DVD transfer of this film is so bad, because I really do like this film and would otherwise have given it 3 stars.
But unfortunately the money-grubbing DVD-making people at Beverly Wilshire were so cheap they did not even bother to do what most el-cheapo DVD release companies do when releasing a movie with a picture screen ratio wider than a conventional TV screen, which is to pan and scan. Instead, they merely went and squeezed the entire wider image into the smaller screen, thus giving us a movie of long, thin "stick people". Such lazyness is absolutely INEXCUSABLE, and I wish there were some way to punish these people who are obviously out to cheat the unsuspecting public.
I guess the only real method to punish them we have at our disposal is to withhold our hard-earned money, so I would strongly advise you NOT to buy this DVD.
--Which is a real pity, because this film does deserve to be seen, and if you've viewed and enjoyed the other films I've mentioned above, chances are you will probably like this one too. I can only hope that someone will someday rerelease this again in a proper DVD version, giving the film the respect it deserves. In the meantime, this film was also previously released on video, so if you scrounge around you may be able to find yourself a copy. This is what I will now have to do.

HASH(0x9889f60c) étoiles sur 5 Finally a Remastered Version This Forgotten Film Deserves 24 octobre 2011
Par John McCabe - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: DVD Achat vérifié
For everyone wishing for a re-mastered version your wait is over. This newly released DVD from the original negatives is as good as it gets and a badly needed improvement over previous fuzzy versions.

There is no need to repeat what other reviewers have said about this movie other than if you are looking for a standard fare horror shocker avoid it. It is more of a detective story with a haunting quality.

Extras include amusing commentary by Karen Black who does not appear to like this movie remembering little about the plot. Most of Karen's commentary critiques the other actors (she liked Christopher Plummer) and the cinematography. There is also no chemistry between her and the other commentator who rambles on like a film school professor.

Still the extras are appreciated and all in all a very nice effort by Scorpion Releasing.

HASH(0x9889f4ec) étoiles sur 5 Excellent 70's Cult Cinema 19 septembre 2012
Par Movieman, Montreal - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: DVD
The review is for Katarina's Nightmare Theater release of the PYX. I have been curious about this film for decades & I am glad I finally picked it up.
The Pyx is based on the novel written by John Buell, I grew up in Montreal and attended elementary school with his young son. So, I knew about the book first, then years later I learned it was made into a film. This is a Canadian production & it's an early example of Canadian Exploitation Cinema, during this period several productions were being made in Canada featuring American directors & actors. Canadian film making was in it's infancy & the producers probably had their eye on making a dent in an American market. The Pyx also serves as a bit of a time capsule, as you get to see how Montreal looked back in the early 70's. Christopher Plummer plays a cop who is investigating the murder of prostitute, Karen Black. Plummer finds evidence of a devil cult, drugs, & the church being involved during her final hours. The storytelling style is interesting - from Karen's perspective it unfolds through a series of flashbacks leading up to the final days just before her death. It's a suspense thriller with supernatural elements. The version presented here is taken from the original film negative & it also features commentary with Karen Black & the original trailer. You can watch the movie with the intoduction from horror hostess Katarina, or just play the feature film. The Pyx is also known as "The Hooker Cult Murders", but this particular version is 2:35:1 widescreen, it has the best quality. This is the one to get if you are interested.If you like this movie, another Canadian production worth checking out is The Silent Partner which was shot in Toronto just a few years later, it stars Elliot Gould, Susannah York, Christopher Plummer & a very young John Candy.

HASH(0x9896d840) étoiles sur 5 Very Unusual, Excellent Film 28 mars 2006
Par Brian G. Ehlert - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I must disagree with the prior review; I saw the film theatrically in 1973 when it first opened theatrically and was a bit put off; then I saw it again about a year later and saw plot points I had missed the first time and found the film to actually be quite intricate with fascinating characters. Karen Black turns in one of her best performances as Elizabeth Lucy, the heroin-addicted prostitute (and she also wrote and performs several effective songs on the soundtrack). Far more intellectual and riveting than many "thrillers", I highly recommend this film to anyone who likes intelligent screenplays and also a film that makes them think a bit. Recommended.

HASH(0x9896d990) étoiles sur 5 ...Five, Six, Grab Your Crucifix... 10 avril 2008
Par Bindy Sue Frønkünschtein - Publié sur Amazon.com

I've loved Karen Black ever since I sat rivetted by her performance in TRILOGY OF TERROR, back about a million years ago. THE PYX has Ms. Black as Elizabeth Lucy, a heroin-addicted prostitute, just trying to get by. Unfortunately, she gets drawn into a horrific situation, resulting in her demise. The movie opens at the point of her death. Christopher Plummer (Dolores Claborne) is a cop named Henderson who tries to unravel the mystery surrounding Elizabeth's homicide. We are taken along as things grow increasingly uneasy and disturbing. Henderson himself must come face to face w/ evil, and forces he cannot understand. His facial expression tells it all during the finalé! I like this one a lot, and found Ms. Black's music to be both haunting and tragic...
