ALL ABOUT EVIL



A few years ago I had the pleasure of enjoying a LIVE Peaches Christ event in San Francisco. The event was Midnight Mass and Elvira was Peaches's featured guest followed by Peter Jacksons DEAD ALIVE (such a fun film) let me just say you will never have a more interesting and fun night out until you experience a LIVE Peaches show. Peaches made Midnight Mass so fun I wanted to move to San Francisco just to watch every show and I remember saying a show as good as that should be traveling around the globe.

At the time I was writing for a magazine in Texas and contacted Peaches Christ for an interview. I remember discussing a short film she had made called GRINDHOUSE, the film was campy and fun so of course I loved it to death. It seems like forever ago this cult leader revealed she was working on a revamped script in hopes of turning her short into a feature length film. I was very excited, if this movie turned out half as good as Peaches Christ's LIVE events I'd have a new favourite movie.

ALL ABOUT EVIL is now being toured around the States with a LIVE pre-show circus like event put on by Peaches Christ and various cast members. I was hoping to hit the road and see the event but last night the film came to THE TORONTO AFTER DARK FILM FEST and director Joshua Grannell was in house to judge a costume contest, do a Q&A, and introduce the film.

So it's no lie that I've been DYING to see this movie I was convinced I was going to LOVE every second of it. The truth is every time I hype myself up over something, whenever I'm convinced I will love a movie I always end up hating it. Well, this is NOT the case, ALL ABOUT EVIL was even better then I anticipated. It's now my 3rd favourite movie of all time. Ok nothing can beat out ELVIRA MISTRESS OF THE DARK and ELVIRA'S HAUNTED HILLS so third favourite is way up there for me.

I gotta tell you the current trailer on youtube may be enough to spark your interest but it DOES'NT do the movie justice. The film is AMAZING, SPOOKTACULAR, FUNNY, SLIGHTLY DISTURBING and FANGTASTIC!

The movie opened up with the most beautiful credits, ever since film school I have some new obsession with opening credits I know this isn't really normal but it is what it is. I really don't want to ruin anything in the film for you so all I'm going to say is the story was great, the cast was perfect, the humour was fresh and the GORE was not a BORE!

What I will say is Cassandra Peterson who played the mother of Thomas Decker had a few little beeeeeZARO moments with her on screen son and a famous Elvira poster, this clearly was one of my favourite scenes of the movie along with the MOST exciting death scene since Paul Reubens (Pee Wee Herman) died in the movie BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER.

If your a fan of cult horror films with a twist of humour much like they did in the 80's before Horrorwood started pumping out all the remakes you got to go see this film. I went with a group large enough to fill the entire row and not one person was disappointed. This is an instant horror classic you don't wanna miss.

Oh and I caught up with director Joshua Grannell at the pub after the movie to learn they've posted ALL ABOUT EVIL merch on the website but haven't really advertised yet. So I'm on my way to buy a t-shirt! Happy Nightmares!

I recognize I cannot avoid people permanently though.
In the last 7 months, my Fibromyalgea discomfort
has virtually dissolved. Sure, I have some stragglers in my
own network, who doesn't?
