Clint Howard and Don Stark agreed not to socialize during filming so that they could maintain the hostility that existed between their characters. See more »
In the dungeon scene with the preserved fetus rising up in its jar, you can obviously see the lines attached to the fetus' hands and head. See more »

The US version released by Anchor Bay Entertainment is the uncut, uncensored version, containing all the violence, gore, and nudity. This version was finally released in the UK in 2006 by Anchor Bay as part of their "Box of the Banned" compilation series. See more »
The much maligned "Evilspeak" actually struck me as an excellent horror movie in the early '80s, shortly before it was banned in the UK and listed on the infamous "nasties" list. Watching this again last night in its uncut format, my view of the film has changed significantly over the years! The film still has a few things going for it. The performances aren't bad and Clint Howard is always interesting to watch, there's a touch of nudity to appeal to the "t&a fans", the effects are bloody and the soundtrack by Roger Kellaway is impressive. On the downside, the film's pace is somewhat plodding and the film could have been edited down to a leaner and meaner tale.
Sexy Miss Friedemeyer (Lynn Hancock) remains a most watchable screen siren and her demise at the jaws of hungry pigs is a delightfully gruesome set-piece.
6 out of 10. Not as bad as people make out but still a turkey.
