Movie Reviews

Wow, Satan Sure Was BUSY In The '70s!
Bindy Sue FrÝnkŁnschtein | under the rubble | 12/28/2003
(3 out of 5 stars)

"GOOD AGAINST EVIL was a made for tv pilot film for a series that never got off the ground. It's sort of an emasculated hybrid of Rosemary's Baby and The Exorcist. A baby is conceived through ritual rape, taken from her mother, offered to the devil, and raised by a secret group of satanists. As an adult (played by Elyssa Davalos), she is protected by those around her, oblivious to the fact that they are planted agents of satan. Along comes a guy (Dack Rambo) to fall in love with her and mess things up. Of course, the devil-folks (led by snakey Richard Lynch) don't take kindly to the idea, and set out to split them up by any means necessary. They kidnap the girl and take her to an undisclosed location. Meanwhile, a little girl gets demon possessed and draws Rambo's character to her. The girl just happens to be the daughter of his ex-girlfriend (played by none other than Kim Catrall), who tries to rekindle a romance with him, while getting an exorcism for her daughter! Dan O'Herlihy (Halloween 3, Robocop) is the exorcist. Unforunately, we'll never know how things turned out, as the series was never made. -SATAN'S SCHOOL FOR GIRLS is a cheesey little gem, starring 2/3 of Charlies Angels (Kate Jackson and Cheryl Ladd)! A woman enrolls in the Salem Academy For Women after her sister is found hanging in her livingroom. Her sleuthing leads her to believe that one of the professors is killing girls (she finds out that others have committed "suicide" too) and making it look like they killed themselves. However, things are not as they appear. Something far more sinister is taking place at the academy! And I'm not just talking about the ultra-groovey '70s fashions either! All in all, a decent double feature..."
A lot of fun, if you're a fan of the genre

"SATAN'S SCHOOL FOR GIRLS is an early 1970s TV movie with a familiar plot. An all-girls New England prep school (tellingly called The Salem Academy) is really a base of operation for ... Satan! (That should come as no surprise, considering the film's title.) And Satan likes to recruit young women for his coven.

Sounds like a sexy movie, but since this is a TV movie, you don't see much skin. However, you see plenty of pretty faces. Such as future CHARLIE'S ANGELS Kate Jackson and Cheryl Ladd (though horror fans are more likely to remember Jackson from DARK SHADOWS). But the film's main star is Pamela Franklin. I'm surprised that a below reviewer called Franklin "an unknown actress," as Franklin also starred in horror's THE LEGEND OF HELL HOUSE (and much else).

The horror isn't gory, but there are some scary scenes, such as the death of one of the teachers. The print quality isn't too great. It looks to have been struck from a scratchy 16mm print that had gone out to TV stations.

The second offering on this DVD, GOOD AGAINST EVIL, isn't even a TV movie. It's a TV pilot for a series about tracking down a girl raised to be Satan's bride. Because it's a pilot, the story ends on a cliffhanger (i.e., the hunt is about to begin). But since the pilot wasn't picked up, the series never materialized, so this cliffhanger will forever remain unresolved.

These two "movies" are not objectively great, but you should enjoy them provided you are either (1) a horror completist, or (2) a hardcore fan of 1970s supernatural TV movies & series (i.e., GHOST STORY/CIRCLE OF FEAR, DON'T BE AFRAID OF THE DARK, THE INITIATION OF SARAH, RACE WITH THE DEVIL, and KOLCHAK: THE NIGHT STALKER). No, the "movies" on this DVD don't rise to that level of quality, but hardcore fans and completists will want to see them anyway. You can't beat the price. Even so, more discerning horror fans may wish to pass."
TV Excorcist Good Against Evil

"GOOD AGAINST EVIL: A couple's child is posseseed by the devil. Hardly original this made-for-TV movie at least explored the Excorcist theme when The Exorcist was only available at movie theaters.
Now it is a bit of nostalgia. A highlight is Dan O'Hearly playing the priest.
At times its kind of funny like when furniture flies at the priest trying to excorcise the demon. It looked like people out of camera range were throwing things away from the priest. Does the Devil have extremely bad aim?
Still if you like old '70s horror like I do, you'll enjoy it.
SATAN'S SCHOOL FOR GIRLS: This is OK but hardly scary. Kate Jackson plays a witch in a girl's school that isn't quite what it seems. Roy Thinnes also stars. Passable time filler. Definately no SUSPIRIA (although the movie was made before Dario Argento's masterpiece."
