After encountering a ghost in his family’s vacation home, Dan a modern artist and his wife Mary hire an “industrial-grade exorcist” named Os to get rid of the beings. But Dan soon realizes that ridding the home of evil won’t be as simple as it seems.
Here we have a movie that would probably be best for the type of horror fans who sit around and listen to their Bright Eyes albums while drinking some form of fancy coffee that I can’t spell properly without a spellchecker. Another Evil isn’t just an indie horror film, but it screams indie horror. I’d almost say it is on the hipster horror level of such things as It Follows, but it feels way more indie and sadly isn’t anywhere as good. The plot deals with a family that has found out that they are living in a haunted house. One thing leads to another and they bring in a guy to get rid of those evil spirits but the dude is totally weird and after a while, we are starting to ask ourselves just who is worse, this guy or the ghosts. I kind of like the whole idea of the plot, but I’m not a fan of the delivery.
I think my main issue with this movie is the pace. It is a simple film in many ways. Things sort of stay in the same area for a good part of the film, that mainly being the haunted house in question. This is a movie that depends on a lot of character development with very little in the way of bells and whistles, so if you aren’t really digging the cast of characters you see most the time, then you will be having issues and I think that brings out most the trouble I had with this one. It just didn’t do much to keep people interested enough and that will be what hurts this one the most with folks. Sure, things do pickup for the third act but it might be hard for some to make it to that point.
