EVILSPEAK (devilspeak) (1981 U.S.) D/W/P: ERIC WESTON W: JOSEPH GAROFALO P: SYLVIO TABET
Clint Howard is Coopersmith, a bullied orphan at a military academy who finds a secret room underneath the chapel. There he attempts to resurrect the devil via his personal computer. Don Stark leads the gang of jocks who finally push him too far by killing his puppy, resulting in Howard becoming a floating, blood-spattered killer who chops heads with a big sword. Other gory deaths are administered by a pack of wild hogs and R.G. Armstrong's drunken caretaker-tuned-zombie. Richard Moll is a satanist who decapitates a woman in the opening prologue. With Joe Cortese as a priest. It's a fun revenge/horror movie that's developed quite the cult following over the years. A set-up for a sequel was never acted upon.
