Church of Film is a weekly gathering for the reverence and worship of cinema. Our hope is to bring the long lost, forgotten, overlooked, obscure or unavailable to a hungry audience unable to get their fill from the local theater offerings. And in so doing, in the cozy darkness of an elegant vintage Portland ballroom (or vintage theater), we build a like-minded community of the curious and the cine-obsessed. All are welcome, as are your creative suggestions.

MESSIAH OF EVIL MOVIE POSTER

IMDB User Review

Aesthetic and unique, in good ways

27 December 2004 | by Jay Bethke (South Dakota, U.S.)

Virtually all of the praise I've ever seen for this film comes with the word "but", followed by a list of flaws. This is undeserved. True, the film (in its DVD double-bill with The Devil's Nightmare form) has some minor editing issues; true, it has cheesy pop music you'd never find if you search for years (I personally consider this a GOOD thing); true, the film is not a fast paced zombie-action flick with grue and butchery (in fact, it's more cult than zombie film). BUT, what the movie does have going for it is an original edge and some sharp, moody scenes that are rare for the era.

MESSIAH OF EVIL
Director:

Country: 
United States
Year: 
1973
Runtime: 
90 minutes

A hundred years in the past, a demonic priest visits a sleepy Californian town and brings with him contagion. He vows to return... and as a strange zombie contagion grips Point Dune, CA, it seems like that prophecy may be coming true! A remarkably strange blend of zombie film and arthouse, MESSIAH OF EVIL gathered cult cache over the years for its heady take on the genre, it's over-the-top set pieces, and its mysterious occult plot (around which conspiracy still swirl!)
