Good Against Evil is a supernatural thriller from 1977 that tells the story of an average American couple, Cindy and Andy, who unwittingly become embroiled in a battle between good and evil forces. The movie is directed by Paul Wendkos and stars Dack Rambo, Elyssa Davalos, and Richard Lynch. The film begins with Cindy and Andy, who are on a road trip to Los Angeles to start a new life together. Along the way, they get lost and end up at a remote motel where a strange and frightening encounter with a group of Satanists occurs. One of the Satanists cuts himself and bleeds into Cindy's mouth, which ultimately leads to her being possessed by an evil spirit.

Meanwhile, a group of three spiritual warriors, Father Kemschler, Peter, and Father Keegan, are on a mission to stop the Satanists from carrying out a ritual that would plunge the world into evil darkness. The trio is aided by a mysterious man named George, who tells them that only Cindy can stop the Satanists from completing their ritual.

The rest of the movie plays out like a classic horror thriller as Cindy is slowly losing control of her body and the Satanists close in on her. The spiritual warriors must use their powers to keep Cindy safe, but they are also battling inner demons that threaten their mission. The story reaches its climax with a thrilling showdown between good and evil, with the fate of humanity hanging in the balance.

One of the standout performances in the film is from Dack Rambo, who plays Father Kemschler. Rambo brings a contemplative and measured perspective to the role of the spiritual leader, who is grappling with his own beliefs about the nature of good and evil. Similarly, Richard Lynch's portrayal of the Satanist leader, Chandler, is genuinely creepy and menacing. Elyssa Davalos also delivers a solid performance as Cindy, who is struggling to hold onto her own identity as she becomes possessed.

The movie's special effects are somewhat dated by today's standards, but they are still impressive for a film that was made over forty years ago. The use of practical effects, such as levitation and practical makeup, help to create a sense of tension and horror that is still effective today. The film's score, composed by Leonard Rosenman, is also a standout, with the eerie soundscape adding to the tension of many pivotal scenes.

Good Against Evil is ultimately worth watching for horror fans who enjoy the genre's early days. The film is a relatively slow burn, but it effectively builds tension throughout, delivering a satisfying payoff with its thrilling climax. The characters, especially the spiritual warriors, are well-drawn and the performances are solid, making the audience invested in the story's outcome. Overall, Good Against Evil is a classic horror movie that should continue to find new audiences for years to come.

Good Against Evil is a 2007 tv movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 25 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 3.8.
