You want to talk about flicks that sit unfinished, or on the shelf to gather dust, you want to talk The Evil Within.
Believe it or not production on this one began way back in 2002. With a dedicated Andrew Getty behind the wheel it seemed inevitable that we’d catch the flick, it just didn’t seem all too likely that we’d be waiting 15 years for it.
Here we are in 2017, and it looks like the picture has finally been finished, 2-4 million dollars and an awful lot of days later. And, unfortunately, in those 15 years to pass, Getty died at the tender age of 47.
Between male lead Fred Koehler and producer Michael Luceri, the film has been completed.
Luceri spoke on the situation as a whole, and he had some positive and interesting things to say about the late Andrew Getty and his vision for the film.
“After Andrew died, I made it my mission to see that his film was completed. I have been on this project from the beginning. Andrew was such a perfectionist, each and every shot had to be perfect before he would move on. When he was young, Andrew told me that he would have these really powerful, twisted dreams, so scary that he didn’t want to believe they came from inside him, so he had this idea that it was this ’storyteller’ who created the dreams, and that became the genesis of the film’s story.”
It’s a shame Getty never had the chance to see the finished product. We hope he’s looking down right about now smiling.
The flick stars Frederick Koehler, Sean Patrick Flanery, Brianna Brown and Michael Berryman.
The Evil Within is now available On Demand or on VOD services. Here’s the Amazon link.
And here’s the trailer.
THE EVIL WITHIN is the sadistic tale of a lonely, mentally handicapped boy who befriends his reflection in an antique mirror. This demonic creature orders him to go on a murderous rampage to kill the people he loves most.
