Little Evil (2017)
Review by Michael Mahoney

7 / 10
I will fully admit, I didn't go into this one with expectations that I'd enjoy it. I try my best not to go into a movie one way or another, but I find it rather difficult at times. Despite my thinking that I wouldn't care for this one, though, I'd say that Little Evil pleasantly surprised me.

A lot of this comes from the fact that the humor wasn't too overbearing (until the final ten minutes or so), so while it was definitely a light-hearted film, I never got the sense that was I was watching was idiotic, which some comedy-horror films tend to be.

The route the story took assisted in this aspect also. While at first it was virtually a comedic Omen, in the last thirty minutes, the movie switched gears and went an entirely new (and welcomed) direction. Obviously, I won't divulge that exact shift, but it even lead to (believe it or not) an emotional scene or two.

Much of the cast was somewhat forgettable. I did like seeing Tyler Labine (played Dale in Tucker and Dale vs. Evil) for a bit, and Bridget Everett was pretty fun, but most of the side characters were just sort of there. Clancy Brown was a nice face to see, though (I know him best from The Shawshank Redemption), and Adam Scott did really well as the main character. I don't really know Scott from many things (he was in Krampus, but let's be honest, I don't remember any individual character from the film), but I couldn't help but get a Thomas Gibson feel from him. Regardless, he did pretty good here.

Because the movie took a few interesting turns, it didn't turn out to be nearly as stale or bad as I initially expected. It's nothing great, mind you, but it's certainly serviceable, and there are a few rather funny scenes here (I liked both the principal and Adam Scott's conversation, along with the footage of the wedding), to make a single viewing of this movie go down pretty well.
