The Evil Within is one of the strangest most paranoid horror films in years. It’s simultaneously hilarious and terrifying, the psychotic drug induced paranoia of a demented mind. It’s truly like nothing you’ve seen before, primarily due to the manner in which it was made – existing far outside the studio system, the unique vision of one man.
It’s the directorial debut of Andrew Getty, grandson of the petroleum tycoon J. Paul Getty, who blew a large amount of his inheritance on the film.
This is what they have to say about it:
“Principle photography began in 2002 and stopped and started over the next five with Getty personally creating all the sets, camera rigs and elaborate animatronic robots. Post production continued for an addition ten years as Getty quite literally laboured over every single frame of the film. Getty passed away in 2015, in the late stages of post-production, from an ulcer-related gastrointestinal haemorrhage, in addition he had toxic levels of methamphetamine in his body, to which he was known user. The film was then completed by producer, Michael Luceri.”
