Editorial Reviews

Psychologist C.J. Arnold (Richard Crenna) and his wife Caroline (Joanna Pettet) buy a dilapidated historical mansion with a dark past in hopes of restoring the estate and making it a drug rehabilitation clinic with the help of some of his students and current patients. When he opens a secret door in the basement of the house, Arnold inadvertently releases a malevolent presence in Gus Trikonis The Evil. Yowsers! Also starring Victor Buono, Andrew Prine and Cassie Yates.


A family moves into a mansion in a crime-infested urban neighborhood, but the ghost of an actor who died in the mansion is not the only thing they need to watch out for: there is also a punk street gang roaming the area looking for trouble. Tom Bresnahan (Ski School), Jill Whitlow (Night Of The Creeps) and Todd Bridges (Diff rent Strokes) star in the haunted-house thriller Twice Dead. You will be twice as scared as usual.

    The Evil is that rarest of b movies completely watchable over and over . The cast of Joanna Pettit Andrew Prine and the hot cheerleader from animal house raise the bar slightly in this trapped in a haunted house story . The true genius of this film is that it reflects a bygone time when films like this were made on a shoestring and distributed independently . I like most who love this film saw it on the old HBO before true blood and sopranos when it came on at 5pm . This effective chiller cuts off a group trying to start a drug rehab facility in an old and obviously haunted conservatory . Demons jump from dark corners ,handsaws take on alife of there own and one by one the house ( and something far more sinister in the basement) take on more permanent guests . The performance of Richard Crenna rivals the ham and pomp of Vincent Price . Mr Crenna turns it up full volume and although you might think it strange he finds a way to make this all work . If you havent seen this movie but love films like lets scare jessica to death or superstition this movie is a must have . Simply put if you love b horror movies heres one of the best!!!!!!

    A nice double feature of two of Roger Corman's lesser-known horror films. Both have some great scenes (a buzz saw in THE EVIL and the spinning wheel of a motorcycle in TWICE DEAD), so this double feature is a good deal. I just wish they gave both films their own DVDs. Compromises in compression rate have to be made and although they may not be apparent to 90% of those who watch the film, I did notice artifacting in some night scenes (the plentiful extras don't help the compression rate). Still, both films are in their original aspect ratio and it will be quite a while before you see these films on single DVDs or Blu-Ray, so grab this while you can. The movies themselves (both deal with haunted houses and THE EVIL has a gateway to hell, where the late, great Victor Buono plays the Devil) are great watches, so buy this set and enjoy yourselves. If you like 70's & 80's horror films with their fair share of gore, you'll like these two films.

    I purchased this Corman double-feature for the movie 'The Evil'. I've always been a big Joanna Pettet fan (she appeared in four episodes of Rod Serling's Night Gallery). 'The Evil' is cut from the same cloth as 'The Haunting' and 'Legend of Hell House' -- a group of professors, students and technicians enter a house and use their abilities to determine if the house is haunted. Of course, the house isn't just haunted, it's VERY haunted, and before long, blood and flames and furniture are being tossed around and the body count rises. The physical house that is used in the movie is very effective -- large and spooky, even in daylight. Unfortunately, the goings-on in the house aren't that wonderful. To say that 'The Evil' moves slowly would be a disservice to slow-moving movies. At times, this movie seems to grind to a halt to let the pseudo-scientific, paranormal discussions take center stage. It could have been interesting, but really wasn't. Too many people scream and burst into flames for us to take the following "there's a logical explanation for all this" discussions seriously. The house is clearly haunted so why spend all that time talking about how maybe the house isn't really haunted? Yawn. Even the lovely Joanna Pettet is underused here. -- BUT -- the second feature, 'Twice Dead' (a movie I'd never heard of before now) is actually a highly entertaining movie about a haunted house. A very loving and well-manicured family move into a dilapidated house, seemingly in the middle of Watts during the famous riots, and not only have to contend with supernatural stuff, but a gang of thugs (oh, and very 1980s thugs, at that) who want to make life hell for the loving family. What makes this movie all that 'The Evil' wasn't is a smart script and solid acting.Read more ›

    Because I saw this movie, at the box office when it was originally released back in the 70's. It's a great horror story which intrigued me along the lines of evil spirits. That era epidimically produced a long line of malalent demonic movies.

    Finally THE EVIL has been released on DVD but only to be disappointed with THE DARK TRANSFER. Things that need to be seen are not possible due to this inferior transfer. I would expect better quality from SHOUT FACTORY (distributor) because all the items that SHOUT FACTORY releases are pretty good quality. The Evil has been one of my all time favorite horror flicks to hit the screen & this edition has been a sore let down. I own the original VHS copy of The Evil & the picture quality is FANTASTIC and supersedes this new DVD release!! The colors are balanced on the VHS original and i would expect a digital DVD transfer to be far superior. I can not recommend this DVD release by Shout Factory to anyone due to it's inferior transfer. I suggest you hang on to your old VHS copy until it's released again. The movie alone, "THE EVIL" deserves a 5 star rating but this DVD edition receives 4 stars due to its DARK TRANSFER and poor production release. Sorry SHOUT FACTORY, this is one production i can not recommend or give a shout out to. Will somebody else release this epic horror flick and do it right this time? There's one thing i know & know VERY WELL and that's HORROR MOVIES,. the eye should see what it has been meant to see. Schroeder (Publisher/Owner) of Cult Movies Magazine & Orbital Traxx Records.
