Prime Evil (1988)

director:Roberta Findlay

Stars:William Beckwith, Christine Moore, Mavis Harris

A coven of devil-worshiping monks was founded during the middle ages.They thought that by embracing Satan and denouncing god they would escape the black plague which they probably did as….fast forwaded we are straight in the year 1988,now these satanic sectarianists are living in New York City and are searching for victims for their sacrificial ceremonies.

Try as you might you cannot convince me that this storyline is serious and no matter how much of a sucker I am for good old supernatural horror of the satanic kind,this one hardly qualifies as good satanic horror.However ,it is so silly,inane,with campiness oozing from every pore that I cannot help but love it.

“Prime Evil” is relatively bloodless,poorly acted,clichee ridden…but fun.The fact that the performing actors utter the most pompous lines in a so inane way leaves me speechless and makes me wanna burst into tears of joy.I mean c’mon. A fine looking Alex Parkman being sold at the age of six for child pornography modelling shots…by her father,who was then sacrificed by her grandfather who was subsequently granted with satanic immunity and absolute power for 13 years and that sort of experience has sexually traumatized Alex who is unable to have sex with her boyfriend Bill.A nun called Angela infiltrates the satanic cult which is ruled by the iron hand of a certain priest called Father Thomas Seaton(Satan maybe?)

How can someone not love the lighthearted ridicule of Roberta Findlay’s flick?

Trash afficionados will have a ball…

Σκουπίδι σατανιστικού και υπερφυσικού τρόμου κατευθείαν από το σωτήριον έτος 1988.Έχουμε δει απείρως καλύτερα αλλά με τις απιθανότητες του σεναρίου και το κακό acting δεν μπορεί κανείς παρά να μειδιάσει.Παραδέχομαι επίσης πως ο ρυθμός της ταινίας είναι αρκετά σφιχτός,με αποτέλεσμα ο χρόνος να κυλάει σχετικά γρήγορα.

Κοκορέτσι και σπληνάντερο δεν διαθέτει απόψε το κατάστημα,αλλά οι σουρεάλ ερμηνείες και το σκουπιδοφινάλε απογειώνουν και αποζημιώνουν.

Την περάσαμε και σήμερα…
