It’s a burly instance of horror recreation maximalism, one which tries to take all of the methods you can also make a recreation scary and boil them over right into a blood-red gumbo. Hallucinations on high of hallucinations, bizarre phenomena, tucked-away hamlets stuffed with homicidal residents, helpless, child-like weirdos… if it’s one thing that scared somebody in a film, TV or online game as soon as, The Evil Inside tries to cram it in there.

Screenplay author Trent Haaga–whose resume contains movies like Bonnie & Clyde vs. Dracula and Splatter Disco–is aware of his manner across the style and imbues the story with an air of acquainted absurdity. The sport is over-the-top and melodramatic, however in the end it’s a touching tackle guilt, sacrifice, and redemption.
