Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A fascinatingly deranged horror flick, but also one that's really slow in its first hour."
‑ Mike McGranaghan, Aisle Seat
"Evilspeak may provide a laugh or two, but it's too easily noticeable that there's just not much here, resulting in an empty film that feels stretched beyond its means."
‑ Jeff Beck, Examiner.com
"Future generations will be watching it for years to come, fascinated that something so daft could possibly have caused such outrage, and no doubt thoroughly enjoying its crazy excesses too."
‑ , Film4
"Recommendable only to the staunchest of horror geeks, like myself, Evilspeak is a fairly noteworthy little horror chestnut for a variety of colorful reasons."
‑ Scott Weinberg, Monsters At Play
"I've said it before, I'll say it again: Clint Howard + satanic pigs = MOVIE GOLD."
‑ John Beifuss, Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)
"To be fair, the machine we see here looks pretty impressive by 1981 standards and the graphics it produces must have been a lot of trouble to create, but it's hard to imagine what Montague Summers would have made of it."
‑ Jennie Kermode, Eye for Film
"Remarkably engaging, imaginative, and well crafted."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"So outrageous it's great fun."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"[Co-director] Weston was giving less-discriminating horror audiences in 1981 what he thought they wanted: Carrie with more gore, more beheadings, and all the Satanic pigs they could handle."
‑ Scott Tobias, The Dissolve
"Eric Weston, a sometime actor directing his first film, is no Brian De Palma. But this is a passable variation on De Palma's 1976 chiller, Carrie."
‑ , People Magazine
"a satisfying blend of Revenge of the Nerds and satanism"
‑ Anton Bitel, Movie Gazette
