Evil Ed

Evil Ed ★★★½

While Evil Ed might be very goofy, it’s definitely for the horror lovers of all of the video nasties, exploitative splatter fests, and all things practical fx. Once you get past the poor acting and dive into the fun and over the top concept, there a lot to adore here. First, I’d say I loved how there were so many awesome movie posters from what I could assume influenced the director to make sure a colorful film. The posters I saw included: The Fly, Evil Dead 2, Return of the Living Dead, Critters, The Kindred and Prince of Darkness. Pretty much all of those movie boast some really awesome practical effects that are still praised about to this day. We also have some extremely crazy looking creatures and KD a let over dramatic deaths. Pieces of this reminded me of Braindead (Dead Alive) and I want to say the director was definitely aiming for that vibe. This is the type of movie where if you start it before 11pm, you probably won’t get a kick out of it.
