The Evil Within is the directorial debut of the late Andrew Getty, who sadly passed away in 2015. The film has been in development for over a decade, but it looks to be one very unique horror project that has finally come to light. Why not see for yourself and check out the great little trailer below, which looks like something very different, quite special, low budget, but lots of fun!
Says producer Michael Luceri:
“After Andrew died, I made it my mission to see that his film was completed. I have been on this project from the beginning. Andrew was such a perfectionist, each and every shot had to be perfect before he would move on. When he was young, Andrew told me that he would have these really powerful, twisted dreams, so scary that he didn’t want to believe they came from inside him, so he had this idea that it was this ’storyteller’ who created the dreams, and that became the genesis of the film’s story.”
The films stars Frederick Koehler (Death Race), Sean Patrick Flanery (The Boondock Saints, Saw: the Final Chapter), Dina Meyer (Saw, Starship Troopers), Michael Berryman (The Hills Have Eyes) and Kim Darby (True Grit, Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers)
“Dennis Peterson (Koehler) is a mentally challenged teen who lives with his older brother John (Flanery). While John struggles between caring for Dennis and maintaining a relationship with his increasingly impatient girlfriend Lydia (Meyer), Dennis finds a friend in his own reflection in an antique mirror. But in reality, the reflection is soon revealed to be an Evil Entity (Berryman) who is more charming, smarter and stronger than Dennis, and instructs him to do horrific things in order to ‘fix’ his brain. Tortured and confused, Dennis embarks on a murderous rampage, collecting the bodies in his basement. A police investigation, helmed by a determined social worker (Darby), targets the Peterson’s in an attempt to uncover the truth behind the murders. With the walls rapidly closing in, Dennis makes his final play…with dire results.”
The Evil Within was produced by Robert Hickey, Kent Van Vleet and Michael Luceri.
