Prophet of Evil: the Ervil LeBaron Story

Prophet of Evil: the Ervil LeBaron Story

Jud Taylor (1993)

15 Certificate


Our Score
Single-minded investigator William Devane obsessively pursues charismatic cult leader Brian Dennehy for whom killing is part of his creed in director Jud Taylor's cliché-ridden drama. The two principals offer a winning mix of decency and menace, lending a certain amount of credibility to an otherwise wayward outing, which also features Dee Wallace Stone who played the mother in ET.


Fact-based drama, about religious fanatic Ervil LeBaron, who believed he had God's permission to kill anyone standing in the way of his drive for wealth and power. Starring Brian Dennehy, Tracy Needham and William Devane.
