During the summer of 1984, on a sun-kissed Greek island somewhere in the Mediterranean where the azure sea is radiant, Stathis and his army of Greek lovers do their best to keep the lonely female tourists happy.
During the day, he is a polite and chaste high-school scholar--but when at night he sleepwalks under a different personality--he becomes the cool guy in his dreams, completely unaware of his scandalous shenanigans and his double identity.
A series of episodes based on real crimes that shocked the public opinion. But these stories have been altered so as the people involved not to be recognized. The heroes are sometimes the perpetrators and sometimes the victims.
Evil 2 picks up right where the original left off and explains where the "evil" came from originally. Melitis, Marina, Jenny, and Vakirtzis are still on the run from the endless horde of undead that are devouring all of Greece. As it turns out; this is not the first time that "the evil" has taken over Greece and as before, a "messenger from the gods (Billy Zane)" has come to Earth to find "the heroes" who will defeat the evil and save the world.Written by
This is splatter/comedy for a very select audience, with a lot of inside jokes and tastelessly absurd gore, but very little substance and style. This is a sequel to "Evil", a zero-budgeted amateur zombie movie that came out in 2005 and unexpectedly grew out to become a modest cult hit. The budget for the sequel was much higher, but apparently all the cast members were volunteers. "Evil in the Time of Heroes" implements a bizarre and unappealing narrative structure that constantly jumps back and forth between Athens in ancient times and present day. In both eras, the place is infested with zombies and only a small handful of people (courageous warriors in the past and random losers in the present) remain and battle for survival. Out of nowhere Billy Zane ("Titanic", "Dead Calm") shows up as some kind of prophet slash Jedi Master and he shepherds the pack of undisciplined survivors in their fight against the living dead. How about that? Billy Zane speaks Greek and appears in a crap horror movie for free? The make-up effects are often splendid and the film contains numerous very creative killings sequences, but the lack of subject matter and character development quickly gets on your nerves. The whole thing is hectic, very incoherent and desperately tries to appeal to the comic book fanatics. This is fun & relaxing for about ten minutes, but what remains is a completely immature and easily forgettable "just- another-zombie-comedy"
