This depends on the amount of distortions

But, to fix it right I would again recommend the installation of 1/4 inch drywall over this area and start over. If the distortions are too severe you might need to use furing strips to create a good foundation to a concave area so the new wall does not conform to the old one.

If the distortions are too severe, a build up of spackle, joint compound and the like will just crack and split if too thick.
