The Chronicles of Horror Movie Night: The Evil (1978)


Posted by:

After starting in Washington D.C. nine years ago Horror Movie Night has expanded to include chapters in Austin, Dallas and Chicago. Horror’s Not Dead’s own Brian Kelley is the originator and programmer of this illustrious weekly Wednesday night tradition which features a “classic” horror film. Each week I will be reviewing/commenting on the past week’s selection so do your best to find the film, most of which have not made it past VHS, and follow along. Better yet, start your own chapter!

If only there were a masturbating ghost…

Don’t worry, I’ll explain in a bit. This week we trekked all the way back to the late 70s for a Roger Corman distributed bit of haunted house creepiness. Unfortunately, Gus Trikonis’ 1978 film The Evil is nothing all that special. There is a ghost on the loose in a huge, strange mansion with some co-eds, but save for the outstanding fashion stylings of the characters and a jaw-dropping ending, this really isn’t too interesting.
