Atmospheric but Messy and with Disappointing Conclusion
After losing contact with her artist father, Arletty (Marianna Hill) travels to the coastal town Point Dune. She does not find him and stumbles upon Thom (Michael Greer), a weird wealthy man that is travelling with two lovers, Toni (Joy Bang) and Laura (Anitra Ford), to meet her father. She reads his diary and soon she realizes that there is something strange with the residents of the Californian town.
"Messiah of Evil" is an atmospheric horror film with a messy screenplay and disappointing conclusion. There are several great scenes and creepy deaths with wonderful cinematography. However the character Thom never works and his arrival to the house of Arletty's father is ridiculous. The living sharing Point Dune with the dead is also absurd. Last but not the least, there is no satisfactory explanation for the transformation of the dwellers into zombies. My vote is six.
Title (Brazil): "Zumbís do Mal" ("Zombies of Evil")
