      Emma Wolfe SpookyAstronauts This film left me speechless and it really is something you just have to experience yourself. Rated: 7/10 Apr 9, 2021 Full Review Andrew Todd Birth.Movies.Death. A stream-of-consciousness nightmare that would never have existed were it not for the confluence of money, mental illness, and fanatical devotion to vision. Sep 1, 2019 Full Review David Fontana Film Inquiry The Evil Within is far from flawless, but it's hard to argue with Getty's devotion to this singularly distinguished work of art. Sep 6, 2017 Full Review J.R. Southall Starburst The fantastical landscape of the film is also forgiving of its flaws, as any shortcomings in the script or direction simply feed into the sense of things being not as they should be. Rated: 7/10 Aug 25, 2017 Full Review Andrew Marshall Starburst [It] will not be for everyone, and as the years pass it's likely that the story of its prolonged production and tortured creator will become better known than the film itself, but one thing you can say for sure ... Getty has left his mark upon the world. Rated: 7/10 May 18, 2017 Full Review Travis Johnson FILMINK (Australia) One of most singularly strange films to come along in a good while.

      Ronald M I usually describe this movie as an amazing build up to disappointment. They had some issues hen making this movie so the ending is just bad. But the beginning is phenomenal, and the buildup to the middle Amazing. The main character (Frederick Koehler) carries the movie perfectly and they made great use of Michael Berryman. It is worth the watch for the beginning and middle, and I've even shown just those parts to a couple people. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 06/03/24 Full Review Logan D A mentally disabled youth is provoked to do harm by a demonic reflection. A singular vision based on the nightmares Getty had as a child. Filming began in 2002 and the film wasn't completed until 2017, two years after Getty's death. The film has many flaws but perhaps we can forgive them with the illnesses of two of the cast members, McGrory and Berryman, as well as the sickness of Getty himself. The film was finished by his editor. I will say that I still loved the film, however, despite it's flaws. The opening is a remarkably intense set piece and the finale a Grand Guignol garnering my highest respect. The bulk of the rest of the film is carried by Koehler, who manages to portray Dennis as a sympathetic and realistic mentally handicapped man who happens to be haunted by a Gollum like other self. The film falls flat whenever he isn't on screen, focusing mainly on the relationship of Dennis' brother and his fiancé. If you want something different and willing to forgive flaws, recommended. Last appearance of McGrory. His scenes were filmed in 2005. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 11/19/23 Full Review Wolfgang G The Evil Within ist ein Horrorfilm von Andrew Getty… Eine Geschichte eines einsamen, geistig behinderten Jungen, der sich mit seinem Spiegelbild anfreundet… Ein sehr persönlicher und etwas verstörter Film mit einer sadistischen Geschichte… die tief schwarzhumorigen Elemente enthält… Nicht jedem wird dieser Film gefallen… Frederick Koehler liefert eine großartige und hervorragende Leistung ab, die den Film trägt… Rated 4 out of 5 stars 08/28/23 Full Review Axel D Sometimes a review is a warning, this is one of those times. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 06/25/23 Full Review thom g A very personal and somewhat disturbed horror film. If you like horror weirdness, go watch it. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member this movie showed us that Andrew Getty was an absolute genius! The Evil Within Shows Us How A Movie Can Get On the Top level Of Insanity Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/10/23 Full Review Read all reviews
