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

Audience Reviews for Messiah of Evil

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.

Very pleasant surprise from the dvd collection it came on. Very well shot, some creative scenes, and of course, plenty of zombies. A nice little low budget horror flick.

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.:
