THE sadistic tale of a lonely, mentally handicapped boy who befriends his reflection in an antique mirror. This demonic creature orders him to go on a murderous rampage to kill the people he loves most.

ILLAN lopuksi The Evil Within. Aluksi olin jättää tämän elokuvan kokonaan katsomatta (jostakin syystä suhtaduin epäillen elokuvan esittelytekstiin) mutta onneksi katsoin kuitenkin. Kieltämättä todella erikoinen kauhuelokuva.

THE Evil Within is one hell of a ride, a harrowing tumble into a rabbit hole both thrilling and devastating. The film is intercut with bizarre and engrossing stop-motion effects that take us out of our minds and into upside-down dimensions. An obsession with animatronics turns psychotic as puppets seek to seize control from the masters. It echoes the supernatural world of Beetlejuice, but it’s someplace altogether more horrifying. A nod to The Shining has us waiting for axes to drop. Even when we escape the claustrophobic view of Patrick’s perspective, following instead his “normal” brother John, we’re still nauseatingly off-kilter, trapped in a world that looks familiar but feels different; it’s a Twilight Zone moment that’s truly unnerving to contemplate. Like the film’s protagonist, we’re trapped in a nightmarish Fun House without an exit. (Horrorfreaknews) ■
