Evilspeak

Overview

Thanks to the Anchor Bay folks, the 1981 Clint Howard Carrie rip-off Satanist flick Evilspeak comes home to DVD for the first time in all its decapitated uncut glory. Cut from newly discovered sources, the good old red stuff has been added back into the cut, restoring slightly more bloody footage of the devil hogs feasting, along with a graphic moment of heart-ripping for all you horror lovers out there. The film's anamorphic 1.77:1 widescreen picture looks great, and even though it's only a Dolby Digital Mono ...

Overview

Thanks to the Anchor Bay folks, the 1981 Clint Howard Carrie rip-off Satanist flick Evilspeak comes home to DVD for the first time in all its decapitated uncut glory. Cut from newly discovered sources, the good old red stuff has been added back into the cut, restoring slightly more bloody footage of the devil hogs feasting, along with a graphic moment of heart-ripping for all you horror lovers out there. The film's anamorphic 1.77:1 widescreen picture looks great, and even though it's only a Dolby Digital Mono sound option, it does well with what it can. Extra-wise, you get a commentary by none other than Ron's brother himself, joined by writer/producer/director Eric Weston. Of course, any track is automatically the tops when it has Clint Howard in it, but what's with Weston's voice on the track? Definitely one of the most obvious conference-call commentaries in a while, the director actually sounds like a robot talking through a coffee can. That said, it's still a fun track -- just weird. Additionally, the theatrical trailer is packed with enough evil Richard Moll action to warrant at least ten viewings, while the so-thorough-it's-sick poster and stills gallery is a fine archive from around the world. This is definitely a release that the horror community has waited a long time for and they can thank Anchor Bay for delivering.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
Evilspeak is a film that is impossible to take seriously. All of the teenagers look like they are in their late twenties, the story shamelessly manipulates the audience by making Stanley's antagonists a bunch of one-dimensional cretins, and the concept of communing with Satan via a computer is more likely to provoke laughter than chills. Despite all these artistic roadblocks, Evilspeak remains interesting thanks to a surprisingly high level of craftsmanship, both in front of and behind the camera. Clint Howard may be too old for his role, but he delivers a surprisingly earnest and sincere performance that makes Stanley easy to root for. Also notable are Joseph Cortese and Charles Tyner, who bring an amusing tongue-in-cheek edge to their performances as corrupt authority figures. The script is contrived in the extreme, but it also slickly paced and punctuated with plenty of memorable set pieces. Director Eric Weston piles on the spooky atmosphere and delivers plenty of effective knee-jerk shocks, the best example being the pull-no-punches finale that depicts all of Stanley's tormentors getting their comeuppance in a spectacularly gruesome fashion. In short, no one will ever mistake Evilspeak for a classic, but it delivers enough cheap thrills to make it worth a rental for cult movie addicts.
