"Manos: the Hands of Fate" is a masterpiece compared to this...
8 May 2007 | by See all my reviews

When you consider the subject of this film is the ghost of serial killer H.H. Holmes you'd think they'd have found something cool to do with the material. What they did is fail...miserably...to produce anything resembling a watchable film. I never want to hear another bad word about Ed Wood after watching this 2 hour plus waste of time. The one redeeming part of the film is Candace Carey who, at least, is easy to look at. Too bad this probably ruined her career forever. The guy playing Holmes was effectively creepy as well. Overall though, I can't stress enough just how far away from this film you should stay. I once considered "Shadow: Dead Riot" the worst film I'd ever seen but "The Evil One" wins in a landslide.
