Cheap satanic horror movie...
30 August 2000 | by (Poland) – See all my reviews

I remember seeing "Prime Evil" about two years ago.This is truly bad movie with lame story and horrible acting.No suspense,some poor gore effects,but I must say that I enjoyed this one.The director Roberta Findlay has made several cheap horror and exploitation movies like "Snuff","The Oracle" etc.If you like trashy horror flicks give this ultra-rarity a look.
