In 1896 Chicago, serial killer Heram Webster Mudgett was hanged and buried in the Englewood neighborhood where he lived and killed. 110 years later, a local reporter investigates a series of murders that are strikingly similar to those that terrorized the neighborhood earlier. Is someone playing a sick game, or is Mudgett acting from beyond the grave?Written by
"Manos: the Hands of Fate" is a masterpiece compared to this...
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.
