Movie Info

A handful of bank robbers on the run stumble upon a danger far worse than the police in this horror opus. Julian (Brandon Johnson) and Marylin (Heather Magee) are a young couple who have fallen deep in debt. Desperate to get back on their feet again, they team up with Marylin's brother Max (Keith Chambers), an ex-con, and his buddy Kurt (Richard Glover) to rob a bank. On the run from the law after the robbery turns into a shoot-out, Kurt impulsively grabs a woman named Samatha (Samatha Dark) and her daughter as hostages, and head out to what they believe is an abandoned farmhouse in a sparsely populated rural village. However, the thieves and the hostages quickly discover the house is not abandoned after all; a serial killer who has been preying on the community for decades has been using the house as a base of operations, and the criminals soon find themselves at the mercy of a horror more gruesome than they could ever have imagined. Malevolence is the first feature film from long-time horror fan Stevan Mena.

    Would I call it the worst? No. Would I call it average? No. The word Malevolence is a strong and powerful word that has a large and important meaning. Yet when just thrown around as it is in this movie, it has no meaning. I thought it sounded interesting when it was on Chiller... but it was confusing. The music took more away from the movie than it added. It sounded like it would be a Twilight Zone epidsode composition, not for a movie. The highpitched random noises were anything but helpful setting the mood. More than not the music pulled me out of the plot liine The acting was average or less. The effects were awful, and the plot was choppy. The direction was bad. The lighting was worse, and the idea was ok. But the writing butchered the idea. I would recommend only if you've seen all the good Horror movies out there and want to see some that look low-budget and has an overall poor prospect.

    This is the middle section of a three-part trilogy. "Malevolence" was a well-made low-budget slasher and very effective, extremely well-done photography BUT it heavily use the slasher clichés BUT it is still a worth checking in the genre.
