Movie Info

Step into a virtual reality nightmare. Desperately in need of money to care for a sick parent, Jenny takes a job supervising children at a learning center for gifted students. But when she and two other new employees are ushered into a maximum-security underground bunker where eerily robotic children are outfitted with augmented reality glasses, Jenny finds herself thrust into a disturbing technological experiment in which she is an unwitting player in a terrifying virtual game. This future shock brain-bender is a creepy kids thriller for our tech-addicted culture.

Critic Reviews for Let's Be Evil

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (3)

The movie's relentless one-note tone makes its final twist, such as it is, entirely predictable and pat.

Aug 5, 2016 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

A strong twist ending and a creative use of effects helps "Let's Be Evil" overcome its limitations.

Aug 4, 2016 | Full Review…

Let's Be Evil's vision of the future is ... tantalizing but shortsighted.

Aug 3, 2016 | Full Review…

The plot is muddled, riddled with plot holes.

Aug 30, 2018 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

There's always a sense of something being held back, unduly restrained, so the film doesn't punch the way it should.

Oct 28, 2016 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

[A] cautionary tale that tackles modern schooling issues and refreshes terror-tot fiction like Village of the Damned.

A great candidate for Letterboxd's "Synth Score/Neon Aesthetic" list, but otherwise not much on offer.
