Alternate Versions

The U.S. version, "Exorcism at Midnight", was shown only on television. It removed from the British version a sub-plot about two bar-owners' rivalry, and replaced it with 15 minutes of colour footage shot in New York, written by Sam Sherman and directed by Sherman and Steve Jacobson. The remaining British material was tinted in sepia and red, and portrayed as the recollections of a psychiatric patient in a U.S. hospital. See more »

Despite voodoo and demons, a rather dull film.
19 January 2010 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

I have to say at the outset that I have a major complaint about the DVD for this film by Image Entertainment. Like other Image DVDs, this one has no closed captions nor does it have DVD captions. Considering that there are a lot of thick British and Jamaican accents in the film and I am slightly hard of hearing, it was frustrating watching NAKED EVIL. I understand that it costs money to caption films, but still think it unfair to make customers struggle to follow everything being said in the film. Had this been on an older videotape I could understand but not with a DVD that was released long after captioning became the norm.

NAKED EVIL is packaged along with EXORCISM AT MIDNIGHT--which is essentially the same film but with a few added goofy special effects. Considering how similar they both are, I doubt if you'll want to watch them both. And, oddly, they do not have separate entries on IMDb.

The film begins with two Jamaican gangs in the UK fighting each other. By mistake, an Obi (a bottle filled with graveyard earth) is broken--releasing a demon that makes people kill themselves in dramatic ways. The police are assisted by Father Goodman and headmaster Mr. Benson in their investigation. Naturally, all kinds of scary crap occurs until you reach the stirring conclusion.

Overall, despite reasonably good production values, a rather dull story that never seemed to involve me. I wanted to like this film a lot more than I did--after all, it's about voodoo! But, unfortunately it's just a chore to watch.
