“They don’t make ’em like this anymore” applies directly to future Howard the Duck filmmakers Willard Huyck and Gloria Katz’s amazing, dread-thick cult classic Messiah of Evil. With its potent fever dream and handful of all-timer set-pieces loaded with dread, it’s a trip to Point Dume, California, where cosmic horror reigns supreme. The great folks at the American Genre Film Archive (AGFA) and Radiance Films have restored this gem for its 50th anniversary and Brooklyn Horror is thrilled to screen Messiah of Evil in its most pristine form.
