Film: Forever Evil

Forever Evil, while not a classic by any means, is a Direct-to-Video movie notable for the fact that the man who wrote it has since put up his own account of the movie's creation. It's actually a fairly interesting read.

The story concerns Unlikely Hero Marc Denning, who, as we open, is not only expecting a child by his girlfriend, but also expecting to make a killing in the hiking market, thanks to a device called the Emergency Grappling System. To that end, he has planned a celebratory gathering in the woodland retreat he has just sold. The invites have gone out to his girlfriend Holly, brother Jason, Jason's girlfriend Julie, and their friends Robert and Jeanne. Everyone except Marc is slaughtered, both by these weird Glowing Eyes of Doom and a weird-looking Zombie.

Some time later, Marc awakens in hospital, where he meets a fellow survivor, Reggie, and Lt. Leo Ball, who is investigating the massacre. Together, the three, with clues left by a man named Ben Magnus (played by writer Freeman Williams) discover that the killings have something to do with a monster named Yog Kothag.

While the movie is a failure, it is an interesting take on the typical 1980s slasher flick, as the story picks up where most such movies end. And, despite the obvious FX, some scenes manage to be fairly unnerving.

Unrelated to the DC Comics Crisis Crossover of the same name published in 2013.
