Movie Info

A novice director teams up with some folks dying to get into the movies in this comedy thriller. Deborah (Natasha Lyonne) is a socially awkward librarian whose father runs the Victoria Theater, a crumbling old movie house favored by film buffs. When Deborah's dad dies unexpectedly, the family inherits the theater, and while Deborah wants to keep it open, her mother would rather sell it to developers eager to open a Bed, Bath And Beyond in the neighborhood. An argument between Deborah and her mom turns violent, and Deborah ends up killing her; a surveillance camera captures the bloody assault and by accident it's projected onto the screen at the Victoria, where the jaded movie geeks eat it up. Suddenly Deborah decides she's found her calling as a filmmaker, surrounding herself with a retinue of eccentric would-be stars and shooting bloody horror flicks on shoestring budgets. But what her fans don't know is that Deborah isn't using a special effects man, and the bloody killings in her film are the real thing. All About Evil features a handful of cult film favorites in supporting roles, among them John Waters regular Mink Stole and Cassandra Peterson (better known as "Elvira, Mistress Of The Dark"). Director Joshua Grannell is better known in his native San Francisco as drag performer Peaches Christ, and "Peaches" makes a cameo appearance in the film.

Critic Reviews for All About Evil

All Critics (1)

This scrappy, campy horror comedy shows a clear affection for the cinematic tradition that fortunately doesn't supersede a clear desire to play with its entrails.

Easily my new favorite horror-comedy with a great over-the-top performance by Natasha Lyonne and a excellent performance by Thomas Dekker as the leading man.

While highly derivative of many other horror/b-movies - and basically a rehash of Cecil B. Demented and Smash Cut - it's still a decent little blood-soaked slasher satire. It works well within it's low budget, and is a fun homage to classic campy mass murder tales.
