Film Reviews: “Evilspeak” (1981)

Image

Clint Howard stars as nerdy military cadet Stanley Coopersmith. He is bullied by his classmates and taunted by his teachers. Stanley comes across a Satantic book and decides to call on the Devil (wtf?) for some revenge! This film is not unlike “Carrie” in that all of the action takes place in the last 10 minutes. Seriously. Not until 1 hour and 27 minutes does Stanley finally get his powers. Also, who are we supposed to root for here? Of course you feel for the main character as almost the entire film is of him being humiliated over and over, but in the last few minutes Stanley is brutally murdering his teachers and fellow classmates. The trailer made this seem more entertaining than it was.

1.0 out of 4.0 stars.
