Movie Info

Receiving an old oracle as a present, young Jenny Jorgens (Caroline Capers Powers) begins communicating with the ghost of a murdered embezzler named William Graham (James Styles) in this wretched occult horror film. Her disbelieving husband Ray (Roger Neil) thinks that she's gone insane, but Jenny is enlisted by the spirit to avenge his asphyxiation by his wife's greedy lover and a hulking lesbian assassin. This gory, dreadful disaster has little to recommend it to the average viewer. Inept special-effects and obnoxious characters combine to make The Oracle cult-director Roberta Findlay's worst film in recent memory. Gore devotees and bad-film buffs, however, will enjoy Powers' hysterical performance, a pair of brutal stabbing deaths, a really phony puppet-corpse, and a bizarre, campy turn by Pam La Testa as Farkas, the transvestite lesbian killer. Others will want to stay away.more

Audience Reviews for The Oracle

Holy crap is this film an ungodly, wretched mess!
This film was released in 1985 but everything about it including those open-shirted hairy-chested guys indicates this was probably made in 1980 and sat on a shelf for 5 years until some dumb shmuck thought he could make a few bucks off of it.
I'm sure he didn't.
Oh well, what did I expect from half of the "creative" team that brought you 'Snuff'.
