Fear No Evil (1981)

In an ancient time, an elderly priest hunts down and destroys Lucifer, who vows to be reborn.

Fast-forward to the present day, Andrew (Stefan Arngrim) is a bullied, effeminate high school honour roll student that possesses satanic powers. On his eighteenth birthday, he causes an accident that cripples his mother and turns his father into an abusive alcoholic.

Meanwhile, the Archangel Gabrielle (Kathleen Rowe McAllen) is sent from heaven and assumes the human form of 18-year-old student Julie Fanshowe to stop him before his evil takes over the world.

Embracing the fact that he is Lucifer reincarnated, Andrew conducts a massive ceremony on a secluded island (location shooting took place on Heart Island in the Saint Lawrence River, New York) and begins to wage an unholy war upon on those who have abused him.

Written and directed by Frank LaLoggia, Fear No Evil is a twisted and creepy low budget take on satanic cinema similar to The Omen under the influence of Hammer Films.

The excellent soundtrack features The Ramones, The B-52’s, The Rezillos, the Sex Pistols, the Boomtown Rats, Patti Smith and several other pioneers of late 1970s punk rock.
