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.

Ex­tras None. Will Salmon
