Brain wiring 101 .......
2 December 2013 | by merklekranzSee all my reviews

William Devane and Brian Dennehy give strong performances in this deranged religious cult leader tale. Based on a true story, the film tries to cover a lot of ground and years, with decidedly mixed results. Some scenes are so rushed, especially at the conclusion that some impact is lost. The followers in this film are simply brain wired pawns for sect leader Dennehy, programed to carry out his grand plan of religious dominance. Devane and Dennehy are the reason to see the film, with the rest of the cast mostly forgettable. For fans of the actors, this is a real showcase. "Prophet of Evil" may have only been a TV movie, but it is definitely worth seeking out. - MERK
