Trivia

Filmed for the most part in the late 1970's this film was not released until several years later by which time some of the players, such as Hope Summers were already dead, and when additional footage, including some gratuitous nudity, was added, along with a 1985 copyright statement. By 1987 it had already found its way to video. See more »

Saved by boobies
28 April 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The most interesting thing about Evil Town was most definitely the presence of breasts, big huge bouncing breasts at that. I couldn't stop laughing when the woman is being chased through the forest and as she runs, her boobs wobble up and down like a yo-yo. There's plenty of shots of them too. After this is over the story soon gets dull. The deaths are goreless and the plot seems to be going nowhere...until the end, when all is revealed.

The overall story is vaguely interesting, but it's the sort of thing that's been done before. I notice someone else described this as a zombie film, which is untrue. There are no zombies to be found at all. The only good things going for Evil Town are breasts, as mentioned, and a fairly good musical score.
