It's Miriam's 21st Birthday. As a birthday gift, Miriam's aunt Gail has decided to lend Miriam her beautiful country house for an entire weekend. Aunt Gail's country house is amazing. It's a four bedroom house surrounded by breathtaking mountains and miles and miles of woods.

Of course they all jump at the chance to spend a free weekend in the country, in the middle of nowhere. Miriam's friends are totally in the mood for a big time party weekend. They're also anxious to escape the dark and gloomy concrete jungle known as Manhattan. Miriam, Cassy and Tanya bring the food. Mark brings the beer and Leo, the aspiring filmmaker, brings his new video camera. Leo hopes to produce a short movie by documenting every amazing moment of this weekend getaway. Unfortunately, what Leo ends up capturing on camera is not a weekend of peace and ... Written by Dominic Perez

Trivia

Dominic's goal with Evil Things was to take the sheer terror inspired by that real event and re-create it for the characters in his movie. The young characters in Evil Things dare to open that door and make contact with what is on the other side. See more »

Goofs

At the beginning when they are passed by the van on Storm King Mountain Road, they are traveling south towards the city, instead of north towards the Catskills. You can tell this by the Hudson River being on the left side of the road, instead of the right. See more »

creep factor through the roof
22 January 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

For 20k it delivers a lot more than your average found footage film. The characters are likable and well acted. The camera isn't shaky but still feels natural. The plot is unique and has not been done before that I can recall.

I don't understand why the other reviewers did not like this movie. It doesn't show slashing gore, it's not torture pr0n, nor does it employ cheap "jump" scares to keep the audience alive. I suppose if you are looking for a movie to see people in pain the entire time, this movie will disappoint you. But if you're looking for a real story with relatable characters - this one is a real treat.

The creep factor is extremely effective. It reminded me a lot of movies from the 70s-90s that used calm but tense scenes. It is a psychological thriller done extremely well for the budget it had. I can tell that the makers of this movie really thought out what they were doing and cared about the result of their efforts.
