The entire film builds up a dreamlike tension and somnambulant paranoia unlike any film since Carl Dreyer's "Vampyr".

Audience Reviews for Dead People (Messiah of Evil)(Revenge of the Screaming Dead)(The Second Coming)

I got this movie in a DVD pack of vampire flicks, but it's not a vampire movie really. It's really creepy and I really liked it, even though I was disappointed about there being no vampires. Check it out, it's good.

Much better than I was expecting from a low-budget horror movie, especially one that's in the public domain and has multiple titles. Rock solid performances, strongly developed characters, a genuinely creepy atmosphere. All three can be found in this movie, and for a price that can't be beat: free.

Anyone who's interested can find it on YouTube in bits and pieces, or in its entirety at this address.: http://thecinemasnob.com/2009/09/01/public-domain-theater-messiah-of-evil.aspx
