Of the zillions of horror films cluttering the public domain, Messiah of Evil stands out like a severed thumb. Thom Andersen may have inadvertently boosted its reputation when he edited it into his celebrated documentary Los Angeles Plays Itself, but its eye-catching title also can be glimpsed on a theater marquee in Annie Hall. Dreamed up by husband-and-wife writing-directing team Willard Huyck and Gloria Katz (American Graffiti), the story has something to do with a woman searching for her missing father and instead finding a cult of Californian undead played mostly by unemployed NASA workers. The Cinefamily screens this seriously funky, uniquely terrifying '70s artifact in 35mm.
