This is one of the most creepy and original horror films ever! Like Phantasm, you can tell this is the director's nightmare he made into a movie, especially when there's no explanation why things are happening. A priest gets possessed by a devil child in an elaborate plan to not only kill a handful of people but terrorize them over the weekend at a class reunion. If you like surprises in your horror, with this, you can't guess how the next scene will go down. The priest expresses his evil with several disguises from his own personal, insane bag of tricks. Well acted (especially by priest T.G. Finkbinder) by one hit wonder actors. The soundtrack matches the creepiness on screen and deserves credit for not letting you relax between kills. A very underrated flick. 16x9 and Windowboxed at 1.66:1 the picture and audio is grindhouse good.

This movie is basically about a psycho killer priest who wears disguises & kills sinners who he recruited to a class reunion. He gets the ability to kill from an evil child. A lot of people compared this to the Omen because of the child that is involved in the film, but to me it reminded me more of the movie Frailty in terms of its religious message. Its not about a boy taking over ala Damien but of a person who wears some really creepy disguises to kill people who are sinners in (well in some cases) hideous ways all in the name of God.
There are some pretty intense murder scenes in particular one in the ladies room. There is one terrific gore scene & some other cool things to recommend. The acting is ok, as is the story ..pretty simple - nothing that can easily be confusing if you follow it from start to finish. Some would say it isn't clear why these murders are happening to this group of people but if you read the text at the beginning & the end it is clear to a certain extent. There is a meaning to the killings. And he is killing those who have sinned.
It is not a classic by any stretch of the imagination but it was a credible sincere effort. If you are a fan of films Crucible of Terror, Horror High , Horror Hospital and other low budget independent titles that companies like Code Red, Scorpion Releasing or Synapse Films would release , then Id recommend it easily.
Dont expect too much and you'll be rewarded.

Flashback to 1979. I was 9 years old and the neighbors took me and my 2 sisters to see a terrible movie at the drive-in called ‘Prophecy’, which was some foolish mutant bear nonsense. But we stuck around to see the 2nd feature, and that was the one far more worth seeing. It was some previously unknown movie from a couple of years earlier titled ‘The Redeemer’. I remember being transfixed to this movie, and found parts of it very disturbing to my adolescent mind. When we got our first VCR in 1986, I tried all the local video stores to see if anyone had a copy of ‘The Redeemer’ to rent, to no avail. I desperately wanted to see if those scenes I recalled had only been romanticized with time, or if they were in fact still effective: the boy coming out of the watery lagoon, the two thumbs, the living marionette with a sword, a man getting a knife in his head from above, a bathroom sink drowning. I thought I may never know…

Jump ahead to 1997. I was having my first exposure to the internet and one of the first things I looked up was this movie. I found that it wasn’t just a dream or from my imagination after all. It had definitely been released on VHS, though had also been renamed for some pressings to ‘Class Reunion Massacre’. The following day I went to the local video store I had been going to for years, and there it was! I eagerly snatched up ‘Class Reunion Massacre’ and shoved it into the VCR with such excitement that I’m surprised I didn’t break it.

I watched the movie with great intensity, wondering if I would think it’s just a piece of 70’s cheese or if I would still find value in it. I found myself getting chills during the playback as I saw all of the scenes that haunted me for nearly 2 decades. By the end of the movie the verdict was clear. I loved it!

A group of six old friends gather for their high school reunion, only to find themselves trapped, and at the mercy of an insane, vengeful preacher. THE REDEEMER: SON OF SATAN (aka: CLASS REUNION MASSACRE), is a decent enough slasher from that golden age of cinematic carnage, the 70s and 80s. The killer is interesting (he's a master of disguise doncha know!), the means of death are inventive, and the characters are wonderfully ridiculous! This one's more fun than a barrel full of razor blades and broken glass!... P.S.- The killer's disguises are the best aspect of the movie, especially his grim reaper and killer clown!...

Code Red does it again by finding a little-known 70's slasher film with religious overtones, giving it the proper restoration treatment and releasing it to unexpecting audiences. The Seven Deadly Sins were never deadlier, as a boy with two thumbs on one hand (!?!) helps kill the seven people responsible for making one man's life a living hell during his time in school. It all takes place at a class reunion, where each nasty person (each one representing the Seven Deadly Sins) is picked-off in various bloody ways. Looking for something different? Then look no further. First time on DVD!
