This is one nutty movie. After watching the ghost hunter for 10 minutes, I couldn’t take it anymore. I know this guy! Looked up the movie online, and Os is played by the energy vampire, Craig Robinson, on What We Do in the Shadows (Mark Proksch). Only my favorite character on the show!
Anyway, Another Evil is kind of a showcase for his comic talents. Very little horror element, the bulk of the emphasis on the movie is character-driven comedy, between two people. Playing, well, “straight man” is Steve Zissis as Dan, a successful artist (of black circles, I thought this part was real funny, with your typical art pretentions, though he does own up to it) who is experiencing a haunting in his getaway cabin. They get a ghost hunting “bro,” who shows up in a sleeveless shirt, and energy drink in hand. Dan has his doubts, so Os is recommended to him. And he’s got a bunch of, uh, issues (his girlfriend recently broke up with him because he had too many cats, amongst other things).
I found this movie pretty hilarious, then again, I think Mark Proksch is a comic genius. Watch the DVD deleted scenes, these crazy monologues he does, as well as interacting with Dan, are a riot. Probably too self-indulgent for the movie, and they don’t exactly move the story along. But so great they’re included here.
What I didn’t think worked for this movie, was the final act. Where Os has to go sinister, or at least completely off the deep end, character-wise, did not work for me. Os has a laundry list of problems, but he comes off harmless enough (albeit totally misguided). Kidnapping the family and threatening to kill their son seemed out of character.
Only one thing I liked in the final act. There is a twist with the ghost, which makes you rethink what happened before, as well as the effect it had on the rest of the movie!
A Story About Ghosts and Loneliness
After encountering a ghost in his family’s vacation home, modern artist Dan (Steve Zissis, who more than one reviewer has called “schlubby”) and his wife Mary (Jennifer Irwin) hire an “industrial-grade exorcist” named Oscar (Mark Proksch) to get rid of the beings. But Dan soon realizes that ridding the home of evil will not be as simple as it seems.
While the film as a whole is good, it does suffer from an inability to be categorized. While labeled as a “horror comedy”, this is far from the truth. The comedy does not go much beyond the early scene with the first exorcist (Dan Bakkedahl), who is clearly either a fraud or flat-out nutty. The horror angle does not go much beyond the jump scare from seeing a ghost on the stairs in one scene. At no point do we have a “horror comedy” blend.
The real story here is of a man who is clearly lonely and whose loneliness drives him to be both desperate and obnoxious. This is neither scary nor funny, but instead creates a constant awkward atmosphere (which Gary Abrams has aptly compared to Bill Murray in “What About Bob?”). If the goal of a horror film is to create an unease in the audience, they succeeded on this count but probably not in the way they intended. Again, this is not a bad film, just one that is a challenge to classify.
The film also suffers from the cover or poster art. This actually projects the idea that the film is even sillier or low budget than it actually is. This is not silly, and while it may be low budget it never comes across that way. The production value is every bit as good as it needs to be for the concept. The ghost, for example, is legitimately creepy, even though it is about as simple as it could be.
If you are looking for a more conventional horror film about an unconventional man’s approach to the supernatural, the film for you is “A Dark Song”. But “Another Evil” has a potential to grow on you. While it fails to hit home because you never know what to feel, that very same thing might be what gets you to come back for repeat viewings. There is clearly something more to Oscar than first meets the eye.
The movie is out now from Dark Sky Films. The home release is fairly bare bones with no commentary or interviews to speak of, unfortunately. Though the praise offered in this review is clearly “guarded” and with its own caveats, “Another Evil” may prove to be an acquired taste…
