Evangeline Changes Shape and Tone Too Many Times: A Movie Review

*full disclosure: an online screener of this film was provided by Uncork'd Entertainment. Director/writer: Karen Lam. Cast: Kat de Lieva, Richard Harmon, Mayumi Yoshida, David Lewis David Lewis and Kelvin Redvers. Evangeline is a revenge tale, from director Karen Lam. This title was completed in 2013, toured festivals and now, the film is set to release on home video formats. Though, this is one release that might best be forgotten. An homage to Alex Proyas' The Crow (1994), Evangeline is more rock video than a true film. Lam's storytelling style brings lots of characters to the screen, none of whom are really developed. Even the protagonist is shallow and mute, through much of the film. As well, so many ideas are introduced into the story, that Evangeline staggers all over the place. Only the visual style, which is often dark and moody, is consistent and well produced. Almost all other film elements are incongruous,

Evangeline (2013) Film Review

Reviewed by Jesse Miller, MoreHorror.com

Plot: A naive university student, Evangeline, is brutalized by a gang of thrill seeking killers. Left to die in the forest, she is 'saved' by an ancient demon spirit, she goes on to seek her revenge.

Evangeline is a stylish and brutal gothic horror revenge film that looks great, sounds even better and before you’ve made your mind up that it’s just another typical revenge film…well, you’d be half right but don’t let that fool you because this particular film has got a great deal going on upstairs that you’ll have to peel back and look into and digest after all is said and slaughtered.

Have I seen a revenge film that is better looking than this? You know what, I’ll have to double check that fact but regardless Evangeline is a gorgeous looking horror film and

Harpers Island (DVD Review)

  • Fangoria
Grabbing my late-night viewing snack, the “thwrick” of the TV snaps on and I “thump” back onto the couch. The hesitant “tick…tick” of the clock is heard overhead as time seems to suddenly stop. The sandpaper, “thrush” of my jittery fingers drag the volume up on the TV; “nick, nick” the volume rises. All of these exonerated, over-the-top emotions are courtesy of the brilliant and nail-biting CBS television show Harper’S Island.

The series, being dealt the DVD edition treatment this week from CBS DVD, is a series I originally looked over this past spring season. The show, created by Ari Schlossberg, who penned the 2005 horror/thriller Hide And Seek, and from Executive Producer Jon Turteltaub, who helmed the other CBS hit Jericho, take us on a wild gut-wrenching thriller ride. Excellently these two masterminds have brought us a series that is unique and original, something that horror and
