The Evil Within

The Evil Within ★★★★★

Utterly unique. Insanely twisted. Unflinchingly problematic. This movie is as close to a personal treatise on intrusive thoughts and nightmares manifest into reality as anything I have ever seen. Given that I have never seen anything like this, I suppose that shouldn't be much of a surprise.

Look into the backstory of writer/director Andrew Getty. There is a lengthy and interesting history to him and how this passion project came together. It explains a lot about the sheer oddness of the film.

This is certainly not for everyone, but one thing that no one can take away from it is that it stands alone within horror cinema. A monument* to a singular and unique vision. And that is just about the highest compliment I can pay.

*or mausoleum, depending on how you want to look at it.
