Movie Info

This pedestrian haunted-house film stars Vic Morrow as a creepy real estate agent who introduces a young couple to a quaint Louisiana farmhouse, neglecting to inform them of its horrific, blood-spattered past. As bizarre events begin to plague the couple, their suspicions that the place may be haunted slowly give way to the notion that someone is trying to scare them silly. Unfortunately, viewers will have little difficulty solving the mystery, as writer-director Charles B. Pierce tends to be

Could be a metaphor for the notion that the insular, suspicious South would rather evict -- exterminate -- a stranger or outsider than risk being contaminated by alien, progressive ideas.

Audience Reviews for The Evictors

Once in a while there comes an obscured gem that is truly an exciting and thrilling horror experience. The Evictors is such a gem, this is a well acted and directed horror yarn that is a must see for genre fans. This is a film that relies on the basics to tell a good story and it works. The cast is great as well and comprises underrated actor Michael Parks and actress Jessica Harper. This is a creepy an intense movie that is sure to satisfy fans who love obscured horror films. The film relies on atmosphere to set the tone of the film and it successfully builds up tension and dread in the viewer. Films like this are a rare commodity and deserve to see the light of day. The direction by director Charles B. Pierce is great, and can craft a terrific horror picture that is genuinely unnerving. The film at times could have been better, but it relies on a good cast to elevate the story and brings on the tension that fans are looking for in a traditional horror film. Films like this are far better than most films in the genre. This is a well acted, directed and told horror picture that goes for basic chills rather elaborate and poorly thought out sequences that simply don't work. The Evictors is a worthy addition to the genre and one that is a must see for horror fans looking for a well acted and genuinely eerie film. The Evictors is entertaining from start to finish and it is one of the best obscured titles that I have seen in quite some time. If you come across this one, give it a shot, you will be surprised at how good it is.

The Evictors, like Charles B. Pierce's other efforts (The Legend of Boggy Creek and The Town That Dreaded Sundown) is a spooky story based on actual events. This story centers around a house with a violent past. That past, however, does not stay dead. Instead it comes back to terrify any new occupants seeking to live in that same house. There are fine performances, some truly spooky scenes, and several twists towards its conclusion to keep the viewer entertained. Fans of this film should definitely seek out Pierce's other titles mentioned above. Happy Hunting!
