Editorial Reviews

Imagine, if you will, a book of awesome power. A book that will make your deepest,
darkest desires come true... but at a horrifying cost. This is The Book of Pure Evil, and
it s loose in Crowley High. Thankfully, one horny teenager stands between The Book of
Pure Evil and the end of the world as we know it. His name is Todd. And he will save
our asses - whether he likes it or not.

I tend to reserve my five star ratings for only the programs that I think represent the best of television. So, in many ways, my glowing review of "Todd & The Book of Pure Evil" may seem uncharacteristic. I mean, really, it's hardly like this show serves the same purposes as "Mad Men" or "Masterpiece Theater." But this program, with unabashed eccentricity, does exactly what it intends. And by embracing its lunacy wholeheartedly, the show is an unqualified success. This gonzo comedy/horror mash-up from Canada is an unapologetic homage to bad monster movie mayhem. It embraces its intentional badness in such a refreshing way, though, it is almost impossible to resist (if you're into that kind of thing). Combining cheesy effects, ridiculous situations, and over-the-top characterizations while filtering everything through a stoner mentality, this is a show that screams to be discovered by a wider audience and achieve the cult status that seems inevitable.

The program gets off to a quick start as our titular hero Todd (Alex House) discovers the existence of mystical book that has the power to make your dreams come true. But as its powers raise Todd to Rock Star God status, it appears that an ulterior evil is really at work to destroy the school. Subsequent episodes has Todd with a band of misfits pursue the book through a series of misadventures (usually accompanied by a monster or two). Among Todd's cohorts are the school's popular girl (Maggie Castle, on whom Todd is crushing), Todd's witless and one-armed best friend (Bill Turnbull), and a brainy science geek (Melanie Leishman, who is crushing on Todd).

Todd & The Book of Pure Evil is a work of pure genius.

It's like Degrassi: The Next Generation meets Evil Dead 2 - a dirty, bloody, heavy-metal stoner, anti-sentimental, satanic-battling, supernatural high-school comedy!

Being someone who grew up on the Evil Dead series, I can't remember when another TV show gave me the same level of enjoyment that this one does. It is such a shame it is getting cancelled just when popularity was starting to peak here in the States. Sign the petition to save Todd and the Book of Pure Evil!

Todd & The Book of Pure Evil is a cool show. Some episodes are better than others, though. My favorite episodes are Rock N' Roll Zombies Know Best (I am a fan of zombies, after all), Gay Day, Monster Fat, Big Bad Baby, and The Phantom Of Crowley High (which is a musical episode). The only extra I've watched so far on the DVD, is the short film that inspired the show. And thank goodness that the show went in a total different direction, because the short film was way too serious. I prefer the comedy and silliness that the show provides. Bring on Season 2 on DVD!

If you like Jack Brooks Monster Slayer, or Cheech & Chong movies. Then you'll LOVE this! All the acting is pretty solid and the creature effects are surprisingly good too!

So, I have to admit that I was quite skeptical at first, but as soon as I saw the first episode (which is now present), I was hooked on the show. LOL, you can think of it sort of like a Buffy-the-Vampire-Slayer-type of show with some over the top gore thrown in, but instead of "slayers" you have metal-loving stoners. And mentioning stoners, Jason Mewes of "Jay and Silent Bob" is a recurring character, too! Definitely not a show for kids with the bits of cursing and guts flying around (the funny kind, not the gross-out kind, in my opinion), but for anyone who likes a good combination of comedy and horror (more comedy than horror), check it out. :-)
