Editorial Reviews

Director Robert "Freddy Krueger" England dials up a contemporary gothic tale of high-tech horror in976-EVIL. Highschool underdog Hoax Wilmoth (Stephen Geoffreys, Fright Night), fills up the idle hours in his seedy little hometown fending off the local leather-jacketed thugs, avoiding his overbearing, religious fanatic mother (Sandy Dennis) and dreaming of a date with trailer park temptress Suzie(Lezie Deane). But his quietly desperate life takes a terrifying turn when his cousin, Spike, introduces him to an unusual new hobby - phoning in for his Horrorscope. Because instead of the slightly kinky astrological predictions he's expecting, Hoax is hooked-up with a compellingly hideous demonicforce that slowly begins to overtake his entire life. Now there's more than just a phone bill to pay for anyone and everyone who ever dared cross "the neighborhood nerd".

Customer Reviews

One of the best "fun" horror movies of the 80's.
just some guy
As usual, I am not going to give very much away as I don't want to spoil it for anyone who hasn't seen this film as of yet.
Frank R. Schoonover
This movie's great, it's full of great ideas and cheesy acting, (a classic b-movie)!

Format: DVD
Given a boost from the delightfully manic performance of Stephen Geoffreys (Fright Night), 976-EVIL is a tidy little thriller served up by screenwriter Brian Helgeland (Mystic River) and director Robert "Freddy Krueger" Englund. Geoffreys plays a nerdish teenager who gets picked on all the time, a la Carrie White. He finds a vengeance via a telephone service called 976-EVIL which gives him satanic powers to wreak vengeance on those who have wronged him. While there are some weaknesses in the plot (just who is Jim Metzler anyway, who comes on the scene as some kind of private investigator, but without any previous indication as to his involvement in the plot), 976-EVIL has some chilling moments and Geoffreys (who left mainstream movies to make soft porn flicks) is effectively cast. Sandy Dennis also makes an impression as his somewhat eccentric mama.

This DVD is well below the decent quality standard mark. Short scenes and shots are missing or have been omitted for some strange reason and the aspect ratio is completely incorrect. I hope someday someone fix these problems with a correct re-release. The version I'm reviewing is the Sony Pictures release.

Format: DVD
Nerdy kid in town (Stephen Geoffreys of "Fright Night") gets revenge on everyone who ever wronged him when he hooks up with Satan, via horror hot-line "976-EVIL." Directed by Robert Englund of "A Nightmare on Elm Street" fame, the film is obviously very low budget but not completely without charm. As an actor turned director, Englund obviously cares about his characters first and foremost, and in turn, his film gives them ample time to breathe. Also, the man obviously paid attention during his tenure as Freddy, as his film takes many visual cues from the "Elm Street" series and tries its best to rise above its meager budget. There's also an underlying sense of humor (again, a byproduct of being Krueger) that helps make the whole easier to swallow.

A shame, though, that aside from some decent characters and solid cinematography from Paul Elliott which attempts to establish a foreboding mood, the film barely has enough juice to reach its lame conclusion. While the first half sets our characters up nicely, the second more or less tears down any progress made by dispatching of decent characters too quickly and wrapping things up in what feels like a very rushed and hap-hazard sort of way. The film's main weakness is in its script which stretches its premise far too thin and requires its audience to fill in the blanks a few too many times. Also, the gore and make-up effects from the usually consistent Kevin Yagher are surprisingly substandard and, at times, laughable.

Directed by Robert `Freddy Krueger' Englund (A Nightmare on Elm Street, The Phantom of the Opera), 976-EVIL (1989)...interestingly enough I once dated a woman who had the same phone number...stars Stephen Geoffreys (Fright Night, At Close Range) as a nebbish mama's boy who becomes entangled with satanic forces through a 976 phone number after becoming weary of suffering the torments of his nerdly existence. Also appearing is Patrick O'Bryan (No Holds Barred), Oscar winner Sandy Dennis (Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?), Lezlie Deane (Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare), J.J. Cohen (Secret Admirer), Robert Picardo ("Star Trek: Voyager"), and Jim Metzler (River's Edge).

Stephen Geoffreys plays an annoying, smarmy, little doofus (i.e. his standard role) named Hoax Arthur Wilmoth, a high school student who lives with his mother Lucy (Dennis), a holier than thou, pestering, overbearing, unpleasant woman whose home is full of cats, religious icons, and furniture wrapped in plastic. Living in the apartment above the garage is Spike (O'Bryan), Hoax's cousin and part time student/professional juvenile delinquent, and, subsequently, Hoax's idol. After losing the pink slip to his motorcycle during a poker game with some other greasy delinquents, Spike comes across a magazine insert featuring a 976 phone number, one that give you your `horrorscope', whatever the heck that is...anyway, Spike calls, and soon his fortunes change, but he has sort of a falling out with his skeevy girlfriend named Suzie (Deane).

I wanted to get this because of Stephen Geoffrey's from Fright Night, and because it's directed by Robert Englund.
Seems like it would be a great combination but it's not.
First of all, many people seem to think this movie is a continuation of The Evil character from Fright Night, it is not.
It has nothing to do with that character!!
It's basically about this complete reject kid who decides to start calling a hotline for advice, turns all crazy/evil, and finally gets revenge on the people who treated him like crap.
Lots of random parts, many what the F**k moments, and fish falling from the sky at one point.
I'm still glad I watched it though, it's good for a laugh if you're into the old school 80's horror flicks. Still, not something I would buy again if I had to.
