Proving there’s nonetheless mileage within the previous cliché about youngsters making your life hell, the brand new Netflix movie Little Evil has a trailer implying that marrying somebody who gave start to the antichrist would possibly make for some hiccups in your romantic journey collectively. Adam Scott stars as Gary, a man who simply married the love of his life, Samantha (Evangeline Lilly), and finds himself enjoying stepfather to her five-year-old son, Lucas. However a sequence of worrying occasions—together with Lucas barking orders at him in a low, raspy growl, and watching the child burn folks alive—has him questioning if possibly Samantha’s child might not simply be the spawn of Devil. And actually, her story about giving start whereas she was a part of a demonic cult doesn’t assist issues.
All of it seems to be prefer it has the potential to be some tacky rubbish, however together with the presence of Scott and Tyler Labine, the film has one main asset suggesting this gained’t be a warmed-over Omen parody: The movie was written and directed by Eli Craig, the man answerable for the equally genre-spoofing delight Tucker And Dale Vs. Evil, which was additionally a bit too cutesy at occasions, however delivered stunning laughs and gore. With luck, Little Evil will preserve sufficient darkness to counteract the sunny vibe. The film arrives on Netflix September 1.
