“From a manufacturing perspective the route and appearing all dangle significantly better than different low-budget horror movies. And the whole high quality of this manufacturing is much more spectacular taking into consideration that this used to be the one movie that many of the solid, the screenwriter and the director ever labored on. In the long run if you’ll be able to glance previous its shortcomings, Redeemer: Son of Devil is a a laugh experience that lovers of the slasher movie style will have to totally experience.” 10K Bullets
“Thankfully, the forged don’t over play what are necessarily inventory horror sufferers (avaricious lawyer, good-hearted birthday celebration woman, good lesbian, and so on.), so there’s actual stress all the way through the homicide setpieces, in particular the brutal women’ room drowning that includes Jeanetta Arnette and scene-chewing psycho T.G. Finkbinder. The particular results splatter properly, and an eerie tone vegetation the queasy advice that the filmmakers have been sympathetic to the religiously-motivated maniac’s terrible deeds.” All Film
“It’s mild on gore, heavy on ugly and efficient killings, and full of inventive pictures. The killer in reality scared me. Two times. Maximum a hit is the thriller issue — not anything is defined and occasions keep growing extra abnormal as every minute passes. The tone is uncomfortable, particularly with the killer’s a lot of costumes and voice adjustments.” Bleeding Cranium!

It’s now not a really perfect movie and there are moments that paintings higher than others, however general there’s a number of leisure price right here or even a few creepy thrills.” DVD Communicate
“The supernatural side feels tacked on in an effort to get some field place of job from lovers of The Omen. However the murders are well-orchestrated, and the particular results are first rate sufficient. The pacing by no means sags an excessive amount of, and despite the fact that it’s all witless, it does have a definite set of charms […] The Redeemer and his costumes are the principle reason all of that is watchable.” The Gents’s Weblog to Midnite Cinema
“There are some truly great touches right here: nice cinematography; a really creepy atmosphere and a likeable idea solid [sic]. It’s only a disgrace they ended up in mean-spirited junk like this.” Hysteria Lives
“The Redeemer: Son of Devil is a actually nice, forgotten horror film. Sure, it’s were given its tacky issues identical to some other movie of its technology, however it additionally builds a way of foreboding doom extra palpable than numerous motion pictures I’ve encountered. From the minute the hapless sufferers set foot into the college, you are feeling they’re in nice risk and quite a few moments within the movie come off as really suspenseful.” Oh, the Horror!

“Possessed of disturbingly puritanical sensibility, this inept, ugly movie is sticky going certainly.” James J. Mulay (editor), The Horror Movie
“In a 12 months of trashy C-minus motion pictures, The Redeemer (citywide) takes the prize because the worst. It’s a badly acted, stiffly photographed, vile movie that combines in combination And Then There Had been None, No matter Took place to the Magnificence of ’65? and The Omen, then tosses within the Seven Fatal Sins as an afterthought. The movie is directed with theatrical hysteria, too many arbitrary lengthy pictures and repulsive violence by way of Constantine S. Gochis.” Los Angeles Occasions, October 27, 1978

” …this used to be so fuzzy in its intentions that you’d be tempted to hope someone seeking to determine what the message used to be, if anything else, hearty nice good fortune and depart them to it, however The Redeemer operated smartly as a weirdo enjoy as effectively which would possibly praise the extra adventurous dabbler in those murky seventies depths of low finances shockers.” The Spinning Symbol
“This pre-Promenade Night time try is unusually well-crafted, taking into consideration the low finances, easy appearing, and ok particular results. The proselytizing killer precedes every execution with an eloquent ethical detailing the soon-to-be sufferer’s sins. Clown mask, highschool theatres, a flame thrower….all make this a somewhat a laugh watch.” The Terror Lure
” …the movie’s at a loss for words issues are made bearable by way of the presence of its antagonist, who manages to stroll that advantageous line between campy a laugh and authentic creepiness. Each forward of its time and sadly retrograde, The Redeemer is a extremely unsuitable, however fascinating movie that merits a spot within the slasher canon its obscurity has prior to now denied it.” Self-importance Worry
“As a result of the longwinded opening, the classmates don’t arrive on the reunion till a few part an hour into the film. The belief may be needlessly drawn out. After the killer murders his remaining sufferer, the flick will have to be over, however it continues on for some other fifteen mins, a lot of which is composed of a child strolling round aimlessly for what turns out like ceaselessly.” The Video Vacuum
