Weak slasher effort from the lazy Andrew Van Slee has very little going for it.

A bunch of idiotic, twenty-five year old teenagers, go up to the woods for a celebration weekend after graduating high school. Following them are two outcast stoners, a creepy caretaker, and the local police officer and his slutty wife. If the heavy amount of throwaway characters isn’t enough for you, then don’t fret. The main boy harbors a deep, dark secret; he was responsible for the incineration of an entire family years ago when a prank went wrong.

So lo and behold, everyone starts getting killed.

Adam & Evil is one of the many direct-to-video flicks that, while not lacking a suitable budget to aide decent production values, is just entirely lacking in substance. The acting and writing are absolutely dreadful. Not once did I feel like I cared about what would happen to the characters next. Part of that is the writing, and another reason is the casting. Director Van Slee spent five years of his life casting extras in TV movies. Now that he has to cast actors who actually have to speak as opposed to walking around in a background, he’s completely lost. As a result, he hires a cast full of know nothings who bring the production down really, really quickly.

Not bad for those who haven’t been exposed to slasher films, but for veterans like myself, this is the last thing I want to see.

DVD: There is a nice commentary with director Andrew Van Slee where he talks about the relatively calm production that went on. I’m not entirely sure who was sitting next to him firing off questions during its recording, but he does shed some light on a couple facets of the film. When Slee is asked how he came up with the title Adam & Evil, Slee outright admits that he made the title before he even wrote the film because he used to be in producing.
At least he’s an honest bad filmmaker.
