Alain Robak's The Evil Within
11 June 2002 | by (North Dakota) – See all my reviews

This French film is more disturbing than silly American killer baby

flicks like "The Unborn" series. Emmaunelle Escourrou is Yanka,

a voluptuous young thing working at a circus. A mysterious leopard

is brought in, and something escapes from it, and slips into Yanka

(if you know what I mean). She begins feeling like she is pregnant,

but with a couple of differences. She can communicate with her

brood telepathically, and it answers her in a grown male's voice,

and she has a pregnancy craving for something worse than ice

cream and pickles- human blood. Yanka finds out from her "child"

that her expected is a new life form that will be born, return to the

sea, and eventually take over the planet from mankind.

What follows is a semi-road movie, as Yanka loves and kills her

way through France. She comes to hate her "child," but can not

seem to kill it or herself. There are plenty of gory moments here, all

encapsulated into scenes. The ambulance scene and the apartment scene stand out. The finale involves a near rape on a

bus full of football players, with the newly born creature

somewhere on board.

While some of the scenes drag, and the ending is a little

telegraphed, the gore is thrown all over the screen. I have not seen

this kind of bloodshed since "Killer Tongue." Escourrou is good,

and definitely likes to show her lovely bod, and is really hot when

not covered in blood or beheading a pedestrian while waddling in

her third trimester.

Robak's direction is also quick and good. His shots surprised me,

as he goes in the complete opposite direction that some hack B

movie American director would have taken. Also known as "Baby

Blood," "The Evil Within" suffers from a generic title but a full

assault on the senses, and the sensitive. I recommend it.

This is French dubbed into English, and is rated (R) for strong

physical violence, some sexual violence, strong gore, profanity,

female nudity, brief male nudity, sexual content, and sexual

references.
