Editorial Reviews

Five college friends take a road trip out of the city in celebration of a 21st birthday. Aspiring filmmaker Leo brings his video camera along to document their journey. While staying in a remotely located country home on a cold and snowy weekend their excitement quickly turns to panic and 48 hours later they've all vanished, leaving investigators without a single clue...until now. What's ultimately captured on video is not a celebration but a sinister and nightmarish descent into psychological terror. This riveting, critically acclaimed thriller - a pulse-pounding, twisting game of cat-and-mouse until its bone-chilling conclusion - will take you to the edge... and beyond!

1.0 out of 5 stars Evil Boring Things November 19, 2011
Format:DVD
My review contains spoilers.

This film borrow heavily from The Blair Witch Project. In fact, in some places, it's almost identical. Straight from the opening cut as the kids are leaving home and getting in the car, we realize this film is mirroring Blair Witch in a distorted way. This film blatantly rewrites some of Blair Witch's scenes even down to talking about food, doing interviews, etc. They even get lost in the woods, which, in my book was stupid. They carry on about being lost, oh what do we do, we are lost, we will die here. Well, since it did snow heavily the night before, and it's not snowing now, maybe follow your own tracks back. bet you never thought of that, little Einsteins!

The characters are very uninteresting. Only at one point, the lead female puts on a man's wig, and acts like another character's mother, does the film get entertaining.

The film took almost 50 minutes of bad acting before anything really interesting happens. And that is when a video tape shows up on the front porch. They watch the tape and realize they themselves have been watched. That concept was chilling. But that was it for spooky parts. There were a few minor ones after that, but, that's not even really worth the time or money to sit through this for that thrill.

1.0 out of 5 stars I'll never get my hour and a half back. D; August 10, 2011
Format:DVD
This movie is TERRIBLE! IT has NO plot. What you read above is all there is (only worse.)

The "crazed" stalker is just someone who honked at their car and passed them, only later to be found stopped ahead for whatever reason. That is the movies crazed stalker. They get freaked out when they see the van in a -- hold your breath kids -- gas station filling up on gas. Wow. That has the thumb print of Satan all over it, right?

The guy has this impossibly big camera. It's somewhat smaller than the ones they use nowadays. It was the kind you have to put on your shoulder and he seemingly carried it everywhere. That must be some very strong battery (and arm muscles.)

These kids are the only kids who can get lost outside after a snow storm. They were all freaking out about "being lost". It wasn't snowing nor was there a wind. The camera guy panned around to show evidence of animal tracks but the snow was largely untouched (and the animal tracks couldn't have been made by an animal larger than a cat.) I wanted to say, FFS! Turn around, look down, and follow your tracks. Then again we wouldn't get award winning lines like "is that... AN ANIMAL?!" They're in a foresty area. One of the guys says "what? An ANIMAL?! Here? In the WOODS?! NEVER!"

The tension goes up when the poor, haunted kids get a two crank calls and a pounding at the door. After the prerequisite screaming, tears and OMIGAHS!, one goes out to see a present was left. Was it a dead animal? Nope. A poor, mutilated doll that said "your next"? Nah. Satanic symbols painted on the porch with obviously fake blood? Uh uh. It was a video tape. Do our heros A) call the cops? B) Get the hell out of dodge? C) get some weapons to protect themselves? or D) watch the movie?

1.0 out of 5 stars A genuine stinker. March 11, 2013
By Jason
Format:Amazon Instant Video
This film is laughably bad.

The characters are the worst kind of mal-adapted pinheads, the plot is contrived and confused (probably the greatest accomplishment in the movie). It absolutely fails in establishing any level of atmosphere or tension, and the camera work is particularly sub-par. The first hour of this film is almost as exciting as listening to your friend's cousin from out of town talk about his little brother's Facebook feed. The last 30 minutes don't do much better, and save for a couple of moments where you think there just might be a glimmer of potential, they whiz it right down their collective leg.

The found footage genre has long since lost its novelty, and only really works when you have engaging characters you care about, anyway. This concept is lost on the production team for Evil Things. "I'd like to see you do better"... Yeah, I'd LOVE to see ANYONE do better than this pile. Honestly, I think anyone reading this could make a movie like this at home in about 12 hours (at about a dollar an hour budget, plus snacks). I won't throw any spoilers out there... this movie is already rotten. MIGHT... and I emphasize the word MIGHT be enjoyable for younger teen and pre-teen audiences, but anyone with even a mildly developed sense of cinema will break out in hives.

I can only recommend this title if you feel like you have both too much time and too little regret in your life. It will solve both of those problems at once.

Skip 'er like a flat rock, Cap'n.

3.0 out of 5 stars 3 of 5 February 3, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
The title is all wrong. There is no supernatural underlining here. It's the story of five college-aged kids, two guys and three girls, including a little cutie named Tanya, who decide to take-off on a vacation to the middle of nowhere. Things get weird early on and, despite some minor technical blunders, like non-diegetic drones in a "film" that's supposed to be shot from a character camera, it's interestingly creepy in a Blair Witch Project sort of way. That is until the final third when the one-camera narrative perspective is betrayed and everything quickly falls apart. The ending is anticlimactic and the epilogue, boring and unnecessary backstory footage, goes on for way too long.
