On 15 May 1984, the pedophile Evilenko begins to rape children, and then slashing the victims in pieces and eating them. The magistrate family man Vadim Timurouvic Lesiev is assigned to catch the serial killer and almost eight years later he finally captures the monster that killed fifty-five persons, most of them children and young women. On 22 May 1992, Evilenko goes to the court and on 14 February 1994 he is finally executed.Written by

Evilenko is one of those rare moments in the history of cinema, where a (nearly) perfect mix of elegance and perversion succeeds in producing an alarming portrait of the world in which we live. Acting, screenplay, direction, music and scenes, all contribute to create a realistic, dark atmosphere of decadence and inner horror. The story tells this is somewhere in Russia during the Gorbacev era. But we can locate it everywhere - everywhere there is a school, and there is a hierarchy ready to cover even the worse crimes. Malcom McDowell creates one of the most credible, disgusting and disturbing monsters ever seen on screen. Not fascinating as Hannibal Lecter, his clear character alteration is not enough to be aware of his pernicious attitude. This is the first movie of Grieco: not bad as a debut! The movie has not been really distributed in Italy, and I see the average score in IMDb is very low. I understand this is not the usual investigation movie, so it's hard to be accepted. However, I found it to be an important movie, if not really a milestone.
