The Evil

The Evil ★★★

“We’re not going to get out! We’re never getting out!”

There’s just something so appealing about the 70s horror film aesthetic: the clothing, the kitsch, the low budget practical special effects…and the go-for-broke creativity.

Such is the case with The Evil, and I don’t think it would have been possible for me to enjoy the film more. Its campy blend of 70s-era over-dramatization, practical…and occasionally quite effective…special effects, compelling haunted house setting, and a bonkers finale with Victor Buono as the devil himself, left me wanting more in the best possible way.
