I'm ranking this "film" a 1, and yet I will probably be recommending you to see it. I know that sounds weird, but bear with me on this one...
"Evil Spirits" is... well, it's indescribable, but I will try. First of all, the credits play like the credits in "Bambi Meets Godzilla" (a MUCH better film than this one), with every credit beyond the two actors being "Justin French." Then the "movie" starts. Couple of things to note:
1. There is no dialog or sound of any kind. Just some weird music (by "Justin French", of course) 2. Everything is tinted blue. REALLY tinted blue. 3. There's no plot at all.
So the "movie" starts with close-ups of some woman's hands typing on a laptop. Get used to extreme close-ups, 'cuz that's one of the things you'll be seeing a lot of. Then, this guy shows up and starts looking through a drawer. He picks out a ski-mask and puts it on backwards (with the eyes in back) and starts dancing around. He then goes into a bedroom where there is a woman on the bed. He starts jumping up and down on the bed, flopping around the room... looks like he's having some sort of a seizure. The woman just lies there, not reacting, so I assumed she was dead. But no! Soon enough, she starts having some sort of seizure, too, and, starts flailing around. Now they're both flailing around!
We are then transported to a bathroom, where a woman is taking a shower (in a bikini, no nudity here!) and is dancing around. I assume it's the same woman as on the bed because there is only one actress credited, but I can't be sure because we never see her face (which, I assume, was the actress's absolute requirement for agreeing to appear in this "movie"). After what seems like about a thousand years of watching her back while she is dancing, she starts to pull down her bottoms a little and the camera ZOOMS in on her butt-crack. And let me tell you, you have not lived until you have spent 3 1/2 minutes looking at an extreme close-up of a butt-crack in blue tint.
And then we go to close-ups of random things and more close-ups of body parts (another butt in shorts, a woman's bra, hands, feet -- lots of feet, with shoes and without) for the rest of the movie. After a while, it starts to become hilarious. All of a sudden -- THERE'S A PHONE! And someone picks it up, pushes some numbers and then hangs up. Then there's a bunch of time looking at a foot. And then, THERE'S AN AIR VENT! And look, now we're in a car, let's look out the window for a while! About five minutes before the end of the movie, they just replay the beginning credits again, and then back to where we were (we're looking at a foot in a car, in case you're curious) and then after a while it just ends.
I probably made it sound more entertaining that it is, but man oh man, it needs to be seen to be believed. The director has on different occasions claimed it was a prank, although supposedly he has backtracked on that claim. No matter. Prank or honest attempt, it is one of a kind. You will be tempted to turn it off after 5 minutes and I must be honest, it doesn't get any better, but just wow, I mean, wow.
