Uneven anthology horror - creeps, killers, and vampires, 7 October 2014
Author: cheekyfilm from United States

"Where Evil Lives" is an obscure anthology horror film recently acquired by Troma and available on youtube. Very uneven in tone and quality, parts of this could be a Lifetime original, others are very Troma-esque in violence and outlandishness. It has some hilarious "so-bad-it's-good" moments, and some genuinely disturbing moments, but the stories leave much to be desired.

The first is about a recently released mass killer revisiting the scene of the crime (the titular house). It starts out promising, but has a dull ending, and is forgettable besides the opening "swordfish scene".

Still, that swordfish sequence is essential viewing.

The second tale is a generic suburban vampire story, like a lamer version of Salem's Lot. A succubus battles a young psychic girl and her two horny brothers. The best/worst part is a ridiculous, verbose voice-over by the grown psychic, now a middle age woman, frequently talking about teenagers' sex drives in an awful monotone delivery. Truly bizarre.

The third story is about a serial killer murdering girls and harvesting their organs for a strip- mall version of Dr. Frankenstein. Nico, the killer, has a rapist-mustache, wears a black vest, and harvests the organs by putting them in a zip lock baggie - he's seriously creepy. And it gets weirder - the police hire a witch to track down the creep. It's awful, near indecipherable, and my favorite of the bunch.

These all take place in the same house, with a boring wrap-around involving a grounds-keeper chatting with a potential home-buyer. Competently made with some enjoyable b-movie awfulness, it's worth a watch if you're into that sort of thing, but is no diamond in the rough.
