Even the movie's refreshingly atypical focus on character-driven neuroses over pat post-Poltergeist-style jump-scares can't save Another Evil from its creators' lack of ideas.
As quaint as the specters it works to expunge, "Another Evil" is an ultra-low-budget ghost story with an off-kilter sensibility that initially intrigues but ultimately fizzles.
"Another Evil" may not be just another haunted house movie, but after watching this tedious DIY dramedy-thriller you may wish it were more standard issue.
Proksch tilts his wretchedness into menace, and Mell stages a climax that's thrilling and ridiculous in equal measure.
Another Evil relies almost entirely on the subtle comic gifts of its two leads, finding little in the way of plot to kick its characters into laugh-generating action.
"Another Evil" is somewhat unpredictable and nicely played, but so low-key that the comedy as well as everything else feels almost too modest for feature scale; it has the throwaway, anecdotal tenor of a droll short.
Anyone who ever found themselves wishing for a cross section between The Cable Guy and The Exorcist, rejoice in thy ancient cursed tongues.
It's too bad that the film falls apart in its second half, because it really could have been something great had it been executed with just a little more care.
In the end, Another Evil feels more like a funny idea that would've killed as an SNL skit, but as a feature-length film it doesn't stand a ghost of a chance.
While not a perfect film, with Another Evil, Carson Mell delivers something clever and unique enough to stand out from the diluted pool of stories about haunted houses.
Another Evil absolutely offers an original, odd spin on the haunted house yarn, which is always refreshing and welcome in such an overstuffed genre.
Mell lands a surprisingly complicated tone with filmmaking skill, keeping "Another Evil" frequently uproarious and triumphantly unsettling.
