There are some things in this world that I want to love unequivocally. And one of those things is a movie featuring Clint Howard that begins with quotes about Satan. But I just can’t love it. When all is said and done, it’s a pretty standard storyline: creepy-loser-Clint-Howard-freak sucks at everything, stumbles upon a Satanic Bible and summons the dark lord via his computer, uses said computer to send demons to attack his enemies. Low budget, weird storyline, and worst of all, totally boring for about 80% of the movie. What’s with movies that don’t seem to have a soundtrack? I love seeing the computer parts, though, and the demons. And the title typeface! “Evil” is all stylistic and gothic, “Speak” is all pixel-art-y. WOW.
