Storyline

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.

Insane, hilarious and with some truly applause worthy moments
19 June 2010 | by nthroochSee all my reviews

I was lucky enough to see "Evil in the time of heroes" during our local film festival, and honestly didn't know what to expect. The only words I was given were "Billy Zane" and "Zombies". I was immediately sold, but what I actually saw was just so much more.

This is actually a sequel. The original "Evil" was a very low budget horror which is fairly unknown. The sequel totally betrays this though, as the quality of imagery and effects is substantial. The gore, as well as the special effects are fantastic, and highly entertaining. The characters and story are well fleshed out, and quite often there are complete "wtf" moments thrown in for good measure. This would often detract from other films, but in this film they are so poignantly placed that they only serve to make you laugh like a fool.

Needless to say, the concept revolves around a set of strangers brought together under the duress of a Zombie attack. Set in Athens, immediately we are thrown into the action, and into the hilarity. The characters each have very unique personalities and the acting is brilliant. From the over the top style of Vakirtzis the marine, to the stoic reticence of Meletis, they each are endearing and wholly likable.

The story even does something new with the zombie genre! This is surprising enough being that it's almost impossible to do, but certainly the whole film switches back and forth 1000 years, between the men of ancient Greece fighting the zombies, and modern day with our haphazard heroes.

In short, go see this film. Once it comes out on DVD? Buy it. These are the kinds of films that need to be supported. It's new, it's fresh and it's unspeakably funny. Even though it is a Greek language film, the comedy is universal, and hilarious.
