A Terrible Screenplay Associated to Despicable Characters and Bad Acting
The clumsy military cadet Stanley Coopersmith (Clint Howard) is orphan and completely outcast in the West Andover Academy. He is frequently abused and humiliated by four despicable mates, and has a bad treatment from his teachers, the coach, the colonel and even from the local reverend. When Coopersmith finds a book of black mass that belonged to the evil medieval Father Esteban, he uses a computer to conjure Satan and revenge his harassers.
The first point that calls the attention in "Evilspeak" is the terrible and messy screenplay, with a Spanish priest from the Middle Ages banished from the church in the beginning of the story, and an American Academy located where this priest used to celebrate his black masses. The second negative point to highlight is the despicable characters: with the exception of the cooker Jake and the black friend of Coopersmith, every character is nasty. Sarge, Reverend Jameson, the Coach, Colonel Kincaid, Miss Friedemeyer and of course the annoying quartet, they are "prepared" to die in the blood shed in the end of the story. Last but not the least, and as mentioned in the title of another review, the lead role for Clint Howard defines the quality and level of this forgettable flick. My vote is four.
Title (Brazil): "Mensageiro de Satanás" ("Messenger of Satan")
