Quite an unusual piece of early 70’s horror hokum with one of my favourite genre actors (Robert Culp). What starts out as a standard vengeful spooky yarn turns into a giddy, entertaining psychedelic cut and paste freak show. ‘A name For Evil’ was a little more than I expected. In my humble opinion most of the online reviews seem to be far harsher than the film deserves. The photography and soundtrack are absolutely first rate; and I for one really dug the wild neo-hippy tangent midway through. It is the very incongruous nature of the film’s elastic narrative that I found so very appealing.
