The Evil Within (2017)
The sadistic tale of a lonely, mentally handicapped boy who befriends his reflection in an antique mirror. This demonic creature orders him to go on a murderous rampage to kill the people he loves most.
Load of rubbish!!
Unshakable, witty and deeply felt, the film will be paying emotional dividends for a long, long time.
Great example of an old-fashioned, pure-at-heart escapist event movie that doesn't pretend to be anything that it's not and has boat loads of fun being its own ludicrous self.
True to its essence, the characters remain on the same line and manage to entertain the viewer, each highlighting their own distinctive qualities or touches.
A young mentally handicapped boy who lives with his older brother life begins to crumple after he's brother brings him an antique mirror in his room, and a old demon who lives in it demend he do evil things to his family. The Evil Within is a very sadistic and twistic tale of loneliness and how it is to be different in this world. What I liked the most about this film is it's originality, and what limit the director is ready to go. The young Frederick Koehler, is really greati in this film.
With the story of The Evil Within you could definitely make a better movie. That was certainly not the bad part of the movie. It's just the execution, sometimes the acting, and the low budget they spent on special effects that make this horror movie just an average movie. Frederick Koehler as Dennis, the mentally handicapped boy, had his ups and downs with his character. Sometimes it was believable but sometimes it wasn't that good. The rest of the cast was just average as well. The soundtrack could also be much better for a horror movie. Sound effects are a major part of any good horror movie and here it lacks some good sounds. The creepy stuff was okay, sometimes even good, but with a bit more budget on those things it could have been much better. All in all it's not the worst movie I ever saw but it's definitely not a movie I would watch again in the future.
Unfortunately, the film was really below my expectations. Always sorry to make a bad review about the movies but this is not what the poster and the feeling of the film was expected....
I'm an avid horror fan and I've seen some pretty terrible films in my 35 years. This film takes the cake for being one of, If not the worst I've ever come across. The acting is beyond deplorable. The dialogue is laughable. Other reviews would have you believe this is some sort of misunderstood masterpiece, it is not. I'm left wondering how something so atrocious could be made and be so highly favored. I would strongly suggest passing this one up unless you don't mind wasting an hour and a half of your life.
