Netflix’s Little Evil is a sendup of the satanic kid horror subgenre, movies like The Omen and Rosemary’s Baby, etc… and it stars Adam Scott as the stepdad of a pint sized devil with all of the possession signs.
This one should be a hit with horror fans. Check out the trailer:
This looks pretty funny. Adam Scott is always reliable as the straight man who’s hiding just a little bit of pent-up insanity beneath the surface. And that kid looks the part for sure.
Little Evil also stars Evangeline Lilly, Tyler Labine, Donald Faison, and Owen Atlas. It’s directed by Eli Craig, who has a little experience in this area having directed the underrated Tucker and Dale vs. Evil.
This is a Netflix release, and of course it’s set for a release date – September 1 – that is so close it makes it almost impossible to build any anticipation. That is the Netflix way, whether you like it or not.
