''Evilspeak'' is a horror movie from the year 1981.

Things suck for Stanley Coopersmith. He's a welfare student for a {{military school}} and is basically at the bottom of the pecking order. One day it all changes when he is given a punishment duty of cleaning the academy's chapel's basement. There he discovers belongings of late Father Esteban Lorenzo, who was executed for [[HollywoodSatanism Satanism]] in the 16th century. Coopersmith then starts studying Lorenzo's material and later uses his newly gained power to turn the tables against his tormentors.
