Tony Todd takes on the heavily armed dead in the trailer for Live-Evil

Last Updated on August 2, 2021

A trailer and poster have appeared online for writer/director Ari Kirschenbaum's LIVE-EVIL, a film which stars Vladimir Kulich, Charlene Amoia, Vincent M. Ward, J. Richey Nash, and Tony Todd.


When a small college town police station is besieged by "Evil" on a sleepy Halloween night, Pete, the sheriff, and Hancock, his loyal deputy, are thrown into the middle of holy chess-game that could destroy the town, and possibly the world.

The movie is described as "GHOSTBUSTERS meets DAWN OF THE DEAD as seen through Rod Serling's Twilight Zone", and although there's no reference to a John Carpenter joint in that description, I definitely get a Carpenter vibe from the trailer. Especially with the synth score by Shawn Lee playing over the images.

LIVE-EVIL looks pretty cool, particularly that shot of the skull-faced, glowing-eyed, weaponry-toting evil creatures making their way down a hallway. An "I need to see this!" moment for me.

The film is currently making the festival rounds, with production company Simian Tales hoping for a 2016 release.
