Ratings & Reviews

  • Director Mikael Hafstrom - the gentleman responsible for last year's Jennifer Aniston bomb "Derailed" - keeps us guessing as he confidently builds suspense. show more

  • A thoroughly serious film, full of vivid details, but also a relentlessly serious one that requires Mr. Wilson to spend a great deal of time looking disconsolate.

  • Although Evil eventually suffers from its heavy-handed treatment of its subject, it is a well-made and engrossing melodrama. show more
