Unrated - Special Edition
Vampires are having trouble surviving in a world whose life giving blood supply has become polluted by drugs and STDs. They have become a desperate species of mutated semi humans fighting amongst themselves for the remaining humans who have pure blood. On their trail is a cowboy hat wearing samurai sword wielding vampire killing priest (Tim Thomerson) with a personal agenda. Also crossing their path is a blood pusher Max (Ken Foree) who has the answer to what 'Live Evil' is truly about. It's a twisty, violent, bloody, dangerous and sometimes darkly absurd journey into a unique take on the world of bloodsuckers. Special Features: -Audio Commentary w/ Jay Woelfel (Director), Mark Terry (Producer), & Mark Hengst (Benedict) -Subtitles (English & Portuguese) -Deleted Scenes w/director commentary -Special Q+A w/ star Tim Thomerson & Jay Woelfel at Fangoria Los Angeles -Promo Video of "Live Evil" at Fangoria Los Angeles Convention -Behind the Scenes: Stunts -Original Theatrical Trailer -Bonus Short Film "Night Demons" w/ intro by (Producer) Mark Terry
Beginning with a diner massacre before jumping directly to a desert car chase, then a nudity-enriched vampire throat-ripping, then a vampire beat down courtesy of a sword-wielding cowboy/priest, Live Evil bangs from scene to scene like a bat out of hell. Clearly taking advantage of America s approval of vampire worship as the new national religion, the low-budget wonder from co-writer/director Jay Woelfel is undeniably bursting with energy. According to Ken Foree s somber introduction, the drug and lifestyle excesses of humans have rendered the majority unfit for vampiric consumption, provoking the colonies of starving vampires to fight amongst themselves for survival. (Hmmmm...something smells like the Blade franchise in here.) Live Evil cruises back and forth between two different perspectives: a car-full of vampire buds road-tripping to Hollywood, and the sword-wielding, vampire-hunting priest who is out take care of some...(languorous pause, staring glassily into the distance)... unfinished business ...(roll snippets of a vague flashback that won t be fully revealed until at the end of the movie). B-movie veteran Tim Thomerson (Trancers) plays the priest in a wryly funny performance that has him stomping vampire hearts with his boot heel, and (in one memorable speech) comparing vampires to Lamborghinis. In fact, Thomerson is so committed to the character, hiding a whiff of false menace behind his amusingly sincere line delivery, the storyline featuring the vampire buddies pales in comparison. Slightly reminiscent of Near Dark, Live Evil brings enough blood and boobs to the table to entertain even the most jaded horror fan. The film s five-person special effects team really pulls out all the stops when it comes to bringing the syrupy wet work. From a vampire party complete with topless waitresses, to the introduction of a pair of cop vampires with fangs in the palms of their hands, to an inevitable confrontation with vampire babies (God damned vampire babies , intones Thomerson, they re the worst.), Woelfel slams down the creative gas pedal and doesn't let up until the end credits roll. For those willing to ignore sub-par production values, Live Evil pays off in spades. --Ryan Daley, BloodyDisgusting.com
"Tim Thomerson is absolutely perfect portraying the haunted priest." "LIVE EVIL is one of the best independent films I ve seen in quite some time." --Matt Molgaard, Fangoria Magazine
I'm definitely one to gush over cheesy b-movie actors, and they don't come any cheesier Tim Thomerson (Dollman, Trancers 1-6) and Ken Foree (Dawn of the Dead, The Devil's Rejects), the co-stars of "Live Evil." The film follows a group of vampires fighting for survival after contamination of the human blood supply has forced them into warring clans. Thomerson Rocks as a vampire-hunting, el Camino-driving priest armed with a samurai sword, while Foree chews the scenery with a paif of fake fangs as a powerful vampire leader. If you hate the limp-dick Twilight vampires, pop this flick in your player for some good old-fashioned B-movie madness complete with Kung Fu, car chases, babes, boobs, and buckets o' blood. You can thank me later. BODY COUNT: 34 BEST DEATH SCENE: Beheaded baby vampire. --Rue Morgue Magazine

I Like Horror Movies
The DVD is jammed packed with extras. The director commentary and behind the scenes really invite a non movie person like me on to the set of one of these films that are not funded by studios.
Give it a chance and you will be pleasantly surprised.
