MESSIAH OF EVIL
October 30 only
This totally psychotronic masterpiece gets a gorgeous, 2K restoration! You may not be familiar with MESSIAH OF EVIL, but the mind-blowing production design and eerie direction make it an absolute must-see.
Think Carnival of Souls meets H.P. Lovecraft meets Night of the Living Dead, topped off with a nod from the psychedelic early seventies and that pretty well sums it up. Elisha Cook Jr. and Royal Dano make great cameos, but the really catchy actor is Joy Bang as a cute and cuddly immature hippie chick. Joy goes searching for her missing artist father and her journey takes her to a strange Californian seaside town governed by a mysterious undead cult.
Very possibility the inspiration for Kubrick’s THE SHINING. Or, at least, another movie that features an important visit to Room 237.
Directed by Willard Huyck and Gloria Katz, 1973, USA, 93 min, HD Digital
