Messiah of Evil

Messiah of Evil ★★★★

#52FilmsByWomen pt. 7.

(I thought I watched this about ten years ago, but I remembered next to nothing about it so it's going down as a first watch)
Bizarre, atmospheric cult film that owes a bit to Lovecraft and even more to Carnival of Souls. Moves a bit slow toward the end without quite enough visual panache to sustain the weirdness, but mostly I dug the shit out of it. The movie theater sequence is a knockout!
