Trivia

An executive at Avco Embassy wanted the seduction scene between Andrew and Gabrielle to be cut from the film, but director Frank LaLoggia wanted the scene left in. A deal was struck where the scene would be left in the film if the executive would be given associate producer credit. The scene remains in the film. See more »

a huge mess, you gotta see it
23 November 2003 | by horrorbargainbinSee all my reviews

I can't believe I've never heard of this before. Got it at the comic book show today. I'm remind of a better satanic school kid movie called 'Evilspeak'. Get that one if you can, but if you wind up with 'Fear no Evil' you will be entertained and surprised. During a showing of a Passion Play the crowd begins to bleed. Yes, there is quite a bit of religious matter in this movie. Angels in human form versus the devil. That is not all though. There are high school teens up to their 80's activities (having sex). Also, naked boys for an odd scene with a violent kiss. This movie is more homoerotic than 'Jeepers Creepers 2'! In the final scene you can see the devil boy's genitals if you pay close attention. I don't know why!?! Then, there are light shows and I expected the beams to come out of the screen in 3-D! Punk soundtrack with the Rezillos, Sex Pistols, Ramones, and Talking Heads.
