    Oddly enough, the greatest strength in this horror-comedy really isn't the horror or the comedy, it's the heart of the thing. It's ultimately a story about a step-parents acceptance into a new family, both him accepting of the child and the child accepting him. It just so happens that the child in this instance in the antichrist. That relationship as it develops is actually pretty heartwarming, not one you see a lot, and I'll be damned if they don't handle it in a wildly original way. I liked Adam Scott as the stepdad, and I liked his crew of stepdad support group. However, the rest of the movie just doesn't work as well as it should. As built up as the jokes are, none of them quite land. There's a lot of chuckles, but no big laughs. It also has some weird pacing issues, especially near the third act. I actually though the movie was prepping to end on a cliffhanger only to realize that it was actually just getting started for a surprise twist and there was actually about 20 minutes left. I still give it a marginally positive rating because it is still an overall surprisingly charming movie. It's surprisingly likable, and wildly original, and it's got a good heart. It just comes way short of it's ultimate potential

    Not to be confused with the Schmoes Know documentary of the same name, Little Evil is essentially an Omen parody. The movie is a let down in pretty much every way, but the biggest disappointment of all is knowing that this is somehow from the same guy that brought us Tucker and Dale vs. Evil.

    'Little Evil' is a seldom gut-bustingly funny horror-comedy which winks at Richard Donner's demon-seed masterpiece 'The Omen' (with the Tubular-Bells-esque, apocalyptic score heralding the Antichrist's dominion over Earth) but it bungles the burlesque execution. Eli Craig (of 'Tucker & Dale Vs. Evil') is a Kapellmeister at an idyllic surface over the arterial-spray terror. At one point, Craig flagrantly regurgitates the smash-cut structure of Edgar Wright. Lucas (Owen Atlas) is a doppelganger for Damien as well but Craig doesn't spoof diacritical scenes (other than the birthday soiree carnage with a self-immolating clown). As the office nuisance Al, Bridget Everett is truly excruciating. In a florid Hawaiian shirt and with an androgynous attitude about the step-parent role, Everett is assaultively unfunny to real estate agent Gary Bloom (Adam Scott) and the viewer's ear canals with the surfer tautology of "man". Ultimately though, 'Little Evil' is uprooted by a one-joke conceit in which all of Lucas' goat-puppet ventriloquism and other diablerie are faintly ratiocinated by a deadpan Scott. However, it is undeniably uproarious when Scott postulates that hair gel is why Lucas is frozen during his wedding day tornado. Sadly, much of the raillery about Satanism is monomaniacal to the mean-spirited, misogynistic extent where Gary's ravishing wife, Samantha (Evangeline Lilly), is a blathering ignoramus (a conversation about Lucas' conception at a cult ceremony with "warm red pain").

    This had a lot of potential but it only delivers when the cast of characters play off each other. Adam Scott is the driving force here and he gives another solid performance in the lead role. The concept is the weakest link, they setup an interesting idea but the execution is an otherwise lack in direction. The humour is the play on a tired genre and these funny moments are the key for holding the film together. The stepfathers group is the best idea of the film and they never exploit this even though it clearly gains the biggest laughs, not sure they didn't build an extra 20 minutes into the film. Not one of best films on Netflix but it does pass the time. 06-09-2017.
