Travis Lytle’s review published on Letterboxd:
An early '70s chiller that looks every bit its era, Willard Huyck and Gloria Katz' "Messiah of Evil" is solid and spooky piece of work. Revolving around the daughter of an artist seeking to uncover her father's whereabouts, the story sees its lead characters running afoul of a cult moving through a seaside community like a plague. That story clicks quietly, while the production, however limited, revels in effective imagery and jolts that are as surprising as they are effective. Huyck and Katz provide something haunting.
