A pseudo-feminist, horror comedy!
22 July 2003 | by (the rock) – See all my reviews

This French horror movie is more comedy than horror. Even though it starts out sorta seriously, the story quickly turns into a gruesome horror comedy as the pregnant woman with the monster inside her keeps on killing (mostly stupid) men in a series of vignettes strung together haphazardly. The style of filmmaking is typically French. If you seen French commercials or other French dark comedies, you'll recognize the ever present kooky camera angles and the sometimes fast-forward bits.

There's nothing very serious about the film, including the somewhat feminist angle (a woman killing a lot of ugly, violent and stupid men). I say somewhat because even though most of the victims are men, the film concentrates mainly on the love/hate relationship between the monster and the woman, which causes her a lot of pain and suffering, and if there's one thing French cinema is known for, it's gleefully showing young women suffering in the name of art. So, the director's attempt at a feminist statement is ridiculous because the script enjoys putting the woman (who's often naked) through a series of degrading events that belie its feminist intentions. Emmanuelle Escourrou is not really hot or beautiful and this is probably the only "feminist" thing about the movie but I doubt the producers intentionally chose an ordinary looking woman. Something tells me a lot of actresses refused to play the unattractive part and the producers were limited in their choice of actresses willing to go through all the sanguine action.

I'm surprise Troma didn't pick this movie up for release. The ending, which turns into full gory comedy, is very Troma-like. Like when the woman walks around with her face covered in blood and all the men around her don't notice this, or the scene when the new born baby pulls the man inside the car, his legs dangling wildly out of the window. Or the scene when the woman enters a bus full of drunken sports fan who try to gang rape her. Over-the-top silly.

Was it worth watching THE EVIL WITHIN? Well, sorta. I can say it was okay but no one will confuse it with great filmmaking. It's a very grubby-looking schlocky, sometimes funny, more often tedious, horror comedy.
