If you try paying attention.... this movie just won't let you
24 October 2013 | by See all my reviews

Estella Warren put on the best performance in the movie, period. There was not much more going on than a lot of idle blather. I really tried my darnedest to listen intently and learn about the five main characters as they interacted with one another, but my attention span kept flipping over to what may be in my fridge because there was absolutely nothing of interest in Evil Remains.

The opening scene allowed the movie to clearly prove it was a horror film but it also set up the tempo for the movie with that long drawn out eerie music and then the anti climax when a friend or family member jumps out rather than the serial killer.

Oh, the serial killer? Well he happens to be an abused son who retaliates by first murdering his abusive father and then his dear mom at home. The movie then flips forward several years and a student decides to do his thesis on whether the house is still haunted and whether or not the son is still alive and living on the property so many years later. The psychiatrist who assisted the disturbed killer (before he was a killer) tells the student that rumors abound of the killer living on the property and running around with a dogs head covering his face. I believe the intent of covering the killers face with a dogs head is for the audience to still have some questions in their mind as to who the killer is. Is he the abused son all grown up? Or is he actually one of the five (5) students who are out to investigate if the killer still lives. Actually four of the five students just ran their mouths so much that I didn't care whether they lived or died.

The ending was predictable and the movie continued to deteriorate from the opening scene. Estella Warren seemed to actually be fighting for her life, too bad she didn't stay away from making this movie, as it will be a blemish on her career.
