Hailed in 2003 by The British Film Institute as “a rare work of cinematic genius,” this occult tale comes from writer/director Willard Huyck, known for his work on such popular movies as American Graffiti, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, and of course, Howard the Duck. Starring a bevy of 1970s eye candy, including Anitra Ford, Joy Bang, and Marianna Hill, Messiah of Evil is about a young woman (Hill) whose search for her missing father brings her to a strange seaside town under the influence of a mysterious cult.
