Movie of the Week: God Told Me To (1977)

If you're over the age of 30 and you haven't yet seen Larry Cohen's God Told Me To, then there is something wrong with you. I'm disappointed. Broaden your horizons. 

Cohen's filmography speaks for itself: It's Alive is a great horror movie. Bone is a great piece of absurd social commentary. Black Caesar may be the greatest film of the Blaxploitation genre. The Stuff is a great satire. Q: The Winged Serpent is a great monster movie. But God Told Me To can only be described as "Cohenesque", as it defies all film genres. Maybe it starts as a routine police procedural, but soon takes many outrageous turns from there. Essential.
