Critic Reviews for Little Evil
... the film channels the anxieties and fears of fatherhood - in this particular case, step-fatherhood - by asking what would happen if your new wife's kid was actually the antichrist.
Netflix's Little Evil is a surprisingly sweet, rather - dare I say it? - cute, horror comedy that injects heart into the "spawn of Satan" genre.
Little Evil has a little [Edgar] Wright-style cleverness: the movie's big chase sequence is between Gary and a demon, but the demon isn't some horrific monster - it's Lucas' beloved goat puppet, Reeroy.
Offbeat comic-horror tale with cursing and violence.
Audience Reviews for Little Evil
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").
Silly, but watchable.
