Synopsis:Supernatural forces are locked into a college town police force's basement jail. The sheriff and his deputies are subjected to psychic attacks, preying on the fears of the loyal officers and only those with the strongest wills can survive.
Live-Evil (2015) is an American low budget horror movie that looks like a high budget movie where the first part of the movie was in black and white. The movie changed from black and white to color after the supernatural force starts to tap into people’s mind and can see their worst fears.
Director, editor, and writer Ari Kirschenbaum (Bat $#*! Crazy (2011), Fabled (2002)) did an incredible job executing his third movie that delivers and will give viewers the creeps after viewing it. The movie revolves around a supernatural force that can control people’s minds on Halloween night in a small college town. Deputy Hancock (Charlena Amoia - Seven Pounds (2008), Port Charles (1997), American Reunion (2012), How I Met Your Mother (2005)) is working on Halloween night and has no choice but to deal with a malevolent evil force that she does not understand. She does not know how to help people as her co-workers and others in the town are infected, but that was the least of her problems unbeknown to her. The evil force was being held in one of the holding cells, but it can see people’s worst fears and make them do evil things without their control. Deputy Hancock, Sheriff Pete (Vladimir Kulich - The 13th Warrior (1999), The Equalizer (2014), The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (2011), Smokin’ Aces (2006)), and a few other people have to try and find a way to stop the evil force. The group soon found dead corpses rising from their graves and must kill them as well. What happens next was a treat.
The movie was filled with mild humor throughout the movie in scenes you might not expect. The gore was not seen much, but when it was displayed, it was done beautifully. The nudity was not overwhelming and minimal, but I did not see the need for the movie needing nudity to make it a better experience. Overall the movie was visually entertaining with creepy practical makeup effects, gorgeous cinematography that was one of the highlights for me, mostly impressive solid special effects with good CG. The soundtrack was good as well as Amoia’s lead performance. The other actors were okay but could have been better. I gave this movie a six because the storyline was not great leaving viewers to listen carefully so that they can figure out the movie. The story may not make a lot of sense because not everything is explained, but it is quite easy to figure out. Needless to say, this movie might not be for everyone because of unexplained events and abrupt ending that makes me feel it was done so that a sequel can be made.
Live Evil (2015) will be available on VOD Halloween October 31, 2017.
