Format: DVD
Evil is a low-budget Frankenstein of a zombie film. Writer-director Yorgos Noussias clearly loves the genre, and he exploits it crazily. His zombies roaming Athens, Greece, are, in turns, shambling George Romero flesh-eaters, horrifyingly speedy 28 Days Later living dead, and wacky Army of Darkness targets for obscene violence. The main characters are, in turns, frightened victims, butt-kicking video game-like heroes, and the butts of Shaun of the Dead-like jokes.

If it sounds schizophrenic, it is. I found myself yearning to care about the characters, but then puzzled by the film's biggest battle scene, where our intrepid gang of strangers kill zombies by pushing axe handles through the backs of their skulls and tearing their heads off nearly with their bare hands. The film also falters in the nitpicky subject of zombie film's science is the question of how to kill what's dead already. Sometimes a bullet to the chest does the trick, other times these shamblers have to be thoroughly separated into their parts.

It's necessary viewing for for zombie-film fans thanks to unique moments-- a funny, sexy zombie-filled nightmare; zombie soccer hooligans; and a great closing shot. Others, though, should know this Greek salad is pretty inconsistent as a satisfying dish of horror.

"Evil" is a zombie flick. Pure and simple. What makes it stand out is the delirious cinematic glee that Noussias apparently had in making it. He throws all sorts of tricks at us: split screens that number up to seven frames at one point; 'hip-hop' edits; some CGI; and one of the most breathtaking, witty and creepy final shots ever made for this genre! There is also so much blood splattering that it actually hits the camera lens a couple of times! That ROCKS!

First off, despite being billed as a gross-out comedy...this is neither. Its never very funny and the gore/action sequences aren't serious nor particularly funny. Its mostly a drama movie with zombies, gore, and a tiny bit of comedy occasionally.

Its amateur fair in some ways, but give credit to a worthy effort with no big mistakes.

The film makers borrow heavily from other movies. In particular "28 day/weeks later" and interestingly from "run lola run". The plot is straight out of 28 days/weeks with a group of survivors struggling to avoid the neo-zombies (the quick paced ones..."evil"'s are quick paced but stumbling idiots...a fun blending of the old and new school zombies). The filming has elements of "run lola run" with split screen takes of quick action and running...they even have a similar techno soundtrack for it.

The amateur comes across a couple of times in a minor ways: some scenes are obviously filmed under poor lighting situations. They are quite grainy. There is another scene where they are fleeing a group of zombies and then run into another group...the editing is confused at best. Thankfully, its a short take. Theres a few scenes at the beginning which are on screen far too long (like a close up shot of a man staring for several minutes). The worst, and its expected, is some bad acting. Mostly the actors are ok actually, except the "young girl" charactor: she says she's 15....um no...she's clearly in her 20's and worse she can't act. They gave her pigtails to make her look "young" and she's whinny as hell. They stopped just short of putting her in a jumper and having her carry a teddy bear around. If it was meant to be funny it wasn't. It was just annoying.

"EVIL" is a good film with everything pretty much done right. We've got great characters, we've got zombies, we've got nice gore, and we've got a nice touch of humor and humanity thrown in too. There's definitely some great memorable scenes, but the problem is that they're not any more memorable than other films.

I wouldn't say this film is necessarily a "by the numbers" zombie film, but there just wasn't anything to it to let it stand out from others(unless you want to count that it takes place in Athens, which I don't). It's definitely worth seeing, and I'd have no problem viewing it again, it just seemed to lack a style all its own.

It's great, but felt to me a mashing together of styles and themes from other zombie films. So four stars instead of five, but this movie is still worth buying for any zombie fan.

Considering that a lot of other zombie movies that take themselves more seriously wind up either boring or awful, it really was a huge relief to me that "EVIL" was neither.

3 & 1/2. Excellent on the gore effects. 8/10 on the splatter scale (mostly decapitations). Some really cool shots w/ multiple cameras. Trademark B-movie bad audio balance (though not terrible). Humorous and a decent mix of characters, my favorite being the crazy soldier. Especially with the inappropriate/strange music playing during action sequences, this definitely had the early Peter Jackson feel they were (I assume) going for. Pretty cool that it's from Greece, which makes it worth picking up for a few bucks. Not a must-see by any means, but splatter freaks (like me) will get their fix. No real story, just a random virus (or something? it's not explained or looked into), then a group of survivors meet up, find temporary shelter, it gets overrun, they fight, they run away, repeat. Incidentally, the Umberto Lenzi distinction must be made here: this was a film about "infected a-peepul", not zombies.
