Evangeline follows the titular character, Eva Pullman (Kat de Lieva), a young girl who escapes her sheltered upbringing to reinvent herself in college. As she begins to break out of her shell, she attracts the attention of a violent fraternity leader (Richard Harmon) and his two cohorts. Beaten and dumped in the woods to die, Evangeline finds herself trapped in a supernatural nightmare, and she must choose between vengeance and redemption.
Not willing to just stick to the supernatural revenge tale, Evangeline throws in a random sub-plot about a former soldier, struggling with Ptsd, living rough in the woods – a soldier who initially rescues Eva after her beating but can’t save her from murder at the hands »

*full disclosure: an online screener of this film was provided by Uncork'd Entertainment. Director/writer: Karen Lam. Cast: Kat de Lieva, Richard Harmon, Mayumi Yoshida, David Lewis David Lewis and Kelvin Redvers. Evangeline is a revenge tale, from director Karen Lam. This title was completed in 2013, toured festivals and now, the film is set to release on home video formats. Though, this is one release that might best be forgotten. An homage to Alex Proyas' The Crow (1994), Evangeline is more rock video than a true film. Lam's storytelling style brings lots of characters to the screen, none of whom are really developed. Even the protagonist is shallow and mute, through much of the film. As well, so many ideas are introduced into the story, that Evangeline staggers all over the place.

This one should be called “I Spit On Your Crow”, because judging from the poster and trailer for Evangeline, it really gives off the hybrid of a rape revenge film but with a dark and supernatural vibe. Personally, I’m all about revenge films, and this one looks like it bypasses all of the cliche-filled elements that typically fill these kinds of films. The gang at Uncork’d Entertainment is set to unleash the horror thriller on VOD beginning May 8th, with the DVD release coming just a month later, on June 9th. Check out the new trailer and poster for Evangeline and sound off! Will you checking this one out? I know I’ll be.
