Product Description

Based on the shocking true story of the former Soviet Union s most notorious serial killer, this riveting, haunting film explores the mind of a true monster; a man who mutilated and devoured more than 50 children. For years, Andrei Evilenko (Malcolm McDowell, A Clockwork Orange, Gangster No. 1, TV s Entourage ) eluded the obsessive Detective Lesiev (Marton Csokas, The Lord of the Rings Trilogy, xXx, Aeon Flux) and the psychiatric profiler Aron Richter (Ronald Pickup, The Chronicles of Narnia). Spurred on by his rabid fury at the gradual crumbling of his precious Soviet Union, Evilenko is a man who will live, die and kill as a communist. The haunting melodies of composer Angelo Badalamenti (Twin Peaks, Mulholland Drive) and writer-director David Grieco s stark imagination have created a portrait of a serial killer that will resound in the psyches of us all.

Talk about hardcore facts about Andrei Chikatilo jerking cops off on the side.
Ronny G
I watched the movie thinking, wow, the murderer was a hypnotist in addition to being a cannibal?
Richard Masloski
The storyline did hold my interest for the most part, but things happen for no apparent reason.

This is a riveting movie that takes us to places, figuratively and literally, that make us glad to be back home again, safe and sane.

It takes us into the mind, behind the piercing blue eyes, of a serial killer. Malcom McDowell delivers one of his best performances ever as Evilenko, a man who killed and ate numerous children and young women. The brilliant acting raises this movie far above the current spate of serial killer accounts though. It has unique intensity. McDowell convinces us of his character, a man wrapped in rabid loyalty to the Communist Party in the decade just before the Party's fall. From his gravelly voice, to the great Russian bear hug he extends to his victims - McDowell concentrates new kinds of tyranny and menace into his portrayal.

The movie also takes us onto the scene of Communist Russia's last years. Filmed in the Ukraine, it shows both the milder side of life under the Communist regime (children playing along tree-lined pathways) and the grim side (interrogation rooms with stained walls and the relentless sound of water dripping somewhere in the background).

I don't now why this movie got so little publicity. It deserves to be considered as one of the top movies of the year. And McDowell deserves top awards for leading us down those tree-lined paths - into a nightmare.

Serial killers are probably the most monstrously fascinating individuals on the face of the Earth, in part because we still know so little about these rarest of men (they are almost always men, after all). While many a film has been made on the subject, few manage to offer a compelling look at the minds behind these horrific crimes, choosing instead to concentrate on the blood and gore of the killing acts. Evilenko doesn't cater to prurient interests, concentrating instead on the mind of a deranged killer and the authorities' determined search to find him and bring him to justice. Adapted from the novel The Communist Who Ate Children by Italian journalist David Grieco, the story was inspired by the real-life serial killing spree of Andrei Chikatilo, the Rostov Ripper, who killed 52 Russian women, boys, and girls between 1978 and 1990, sexually molesting many of them and reportedly indulging in some degree of cannibalism. Technically speaking, therefore, Evilenko does not attempt to tell Chikatilo's story as it actually happened.

With such a fascinating subject and acclaimed actor Malcolm McDowell taking on the role of the sadistic Evilenko, it's a pity this film has garnered such little publicity. Yes, it's an Italian film, but it deserves both critical and popular success here in America. McDowell is mesmerizing as the psychological time bomb that turns to killing rather late in life. Despite Evilenko's evil, McDowell makes him approachable, thereby drawing you into his unique window on the world. What lies behind his rage? That is really what the movie is about. It also explains why we never actually see the victims; showing us the viscerally monstrous results of his handiwork would have robbed him of his humanity and prevented us from even trying to understand him.

I think the world of Malcolm McDowell and so when he mentioned this movie in an interview he gave as an extra on A CLOCKWORK ORANGE, I ordered the DVD. I thought EVILENKO was to be the true story of Andrei Chikatilo. With a story as bizarre and as chilling and as powerful as that of the actual killer, why would anyone mess with it all that much? Perhaps compress events, change some names, but the truth was way too terrible to tamper with. Or so I thought. But watching this movie is like wasting time studying a student drawing of, say, Munch's THE SCREAM and not paying due diligence to the actual masterpiece.

So I watched the movie before the whistle was blown in the interminable extras on disc two. I watched the movie thinking, wow, the murderer was a hypnotist in addition to being a cannibal? And - wow - how the head cop outsmarts the villain during the interrogation, pretending to be himself hypnotized into taking off his clothes and helping Evilenko spank the monkey. Wow, I thought, reality trumps fiction almost always! I thought I was watching a close semblance to the truth of the hideous history - and when I discovered that the bulk of the storyline was fabricated, I slumped and wondered what the heck was the point?

One point of the writer/director is given in his long, long interview on disc two. David Grieco pushes the notion that the breakup of communist Russia was the catalyst for the birth of Evilenko/Chikatilo. According to him, the one had much to do with the other. A fragmentation of identity, sort of, and a throwback to the origins of mankind where we ate one another. Frankly, I didn't buy any of it. Just like I was sorry to have bought this film.

Evilenko, is based on the true story of a serial killer known as Andrei Chikatilo who was a former member of the soviet union. Malcolm McDowell puts on an excellent portrayl of "Enko" (They changed the name for the slight differences in the film). The director stated that he didn't want to make a documentry.

The film covers the last two taboos: Cannibalism & Pedophillia. Therefore as a warning it is a very brutal film. Some may even be repulsed it. But of course this is all a part of the film's honest portrayl of a monster.

In my opinion, this film, out of all serial killer films: dahmer, gacy, bundy, gein and manson, was the most gruesome, difficult film to watch of them all. However unlike the others, even though they changed a couple of things, i felt it was the most close to the fact dipiction of a murderer. That and the acting is what makes this film worth watching.

The Dvd features are better than most serial killer films because you get a documentry about the real killer and extras.
