Unneeded but mindlessly passable Evil Dead type affair
Evil Clutch is a pretty superfluous Italian outing with a minuscule plot, few characters and no real purpose apart from providing a few chuckles to folks like me who probably have far too much time on our hands. Even for those with the time to waste, this still isn't too good. The titular evil clutch is a daft but amusing clawed hand that emerges from a witches nether regions. It is the most original thing here and it is woefully underused. Also, the film lets the viewer know far too quickly what the score is so there's no surprise when things finally start to happen. Of the small cast, the heroine is irritating, her boyfriend is bland, the doomsaying writer guy is kinda cool and the witch is well, witch like. The film begins with photos and cheesy talking over the credits, before stumbling into a bit of cheesy gore. Then things settle down to the inevitable build up to the action. This is alleviated by a nice score and reasonable direction but still takes too long. When the film gets down to business poor lighting threatens to ruin things, but it turns out OK, more or less and there are a bunch of neato gore moments. Problem is, its sorta difficult to care. I wanted to like this film, I really did, but its so underpowered, so meh that it didn't do much for me. Perhaps I would have got on with it more had I been drunk, or in a generous mood but I was sober and in full possession of critical faculties. Some seem to quite like this, and it certainly has a lot of cheese and one or two memorable bits, but ultimately one can do a whole lot better in my opinion. Approach with caution (or liquor).
