    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 is another film from Charles B. Pierce, the man responsible for the very silly film The Town That Dreaded Sundown. I found nothing scary whatsoever about that particular film, but The Evictors, thankfully, is a different affair altogether. It's more of a psychological thriller than a horror film, and contains a twist that I managed to pick up on early in the story. It didn't spoil the film for me though. What I found refreshing about it was that when the terrible things begin to happen to Ruth, played by Jessica Harper, that her husband doesn't treat her like she's crazy. He does what a real husband would do: protect his wife and help her to protect herself. The film's plot plays upon the notion that this old house that they have moved into is cursed, and that everyone who has ever lived in it has met some terrible end. It's not the most effective film in the world, but it does generate enough atmosphere for chills. If you can manage to find yourself a copy (it's out of print, as of this writing) then check it out. Definitely a crowd pleaser.

    An spooky little supernatural/horror tale that relies more on suspense and atmosphere than gore and over the top scares and that has one of the creepiest house ever with a brooding killer that lurks outside the property. The acting was pretty good for a not well known horror movie and there were some scenes that will keep you on the edge of your seat but most of it was very slow paced and takes alot of patience and low expectations to appreciate it. The thing that pulls it all together is its startling story that just kept me intrigued for the most part. Overall it was simple, moody, suspenseful, atmospheric and chilling and for a movie that came out during The Amityville Horror craze its pretty solid just watch it with an open mind, low expectations and alot of patience because its a slow build up and doesnt have alot of action but its watchable for a rainy night. This one though begs for a rated R remake! Check it out. more of a 2.5 out of 5 stars.
