19 July 2006 | by colaboy7See all my reviews

When I first heard about the making of Greek zombie film, I must admit i felt really excited but a bit weary at the same time.

Excited because this was going to be a first for my country, but a bit uncertain of what it could turn out like...I knew that the guys that made the film were working on a shoelace budget and I was worried that as proper "gore" is quite expensive to create, the whole film would be just people with ketchup on their faces walking around Athens.

From the first moment watching this film you realize that it is made by people who love this kind of genre , for people who love this genre.

Don't expect any hidden meanings when watching "evil". The film is here to entertain us and it succeeds in doing so big time!

The acting is good, the effects are surprisingly convincing, and most of all it is really funny!

Obviously the guys who made this film were inspired by Peter Jackson's "Braindead" . Trying to combine humor with horror is really difficult but they did a great job!

I heard somewhere that the guys have currently plans for a new movie. I just cant wait! And guys if you are reading this... please please please let me be in it! I'll do it for free!
