THE EVIL WITHIN
released OUT NOW! 2017 | 15 | Blu-ray/dVd
Thirteen years in the making, Andrew Getty’s The Evil Within is finally released two years after the director’s death. Getty spent millions fastidiously polishing every frame of this shocker about Dennis, a young man with learning difficulties sent on an evil mirror-inspired killing spree. There are some arresting visuals (an animatronic band with an octopus drummer!), but the plot is a mess, the dialogue’s awful and Fred Koehler’s Dennis is an astonishingly ill-advised, offensive caricature.
