There's a problem with Evil Things: It's not scary. Even though it was done on a small budget, something could have happened to make Evil Things feel like a horror movie.
Evil Things starts slowly and keeps going at a tediously slow pace. They seem to think a van driving like an idiot is scary. Where doesn't that happen? Without any real build to being a scary movie, the end is totally ineffective, and has the audience to the point where they're just ready to be done with the movie. They tried to take a bunch of scenes from other "found footage" movies, including putting the group in the woods ala Blair Witch, but it's done poorly and is just another way to stretch things out.
There is exactly one scene that may freak you out, but it's blunted by no follow-through and a flat ending. We didn't get to see most of the murders, or the end result of said killings, and it all happened within a couple of minutes.
The actors are inexperienced, but they're also working with nothing. Who knows how well they could have done. Most of them did OK for the found footage type film.
Dominic Perez is the writer/director/producer. He hasn't done anything before or since. No surprise there.
There's no reason at all to watch Evil Things, unless you like horror movies without the scares.
