Evil (To Kako) Review
Written by: floridapossum
To Kako or Evil as it was released in the U.S., is a must see, must have Greek zombie film, by first time filmmaker, Yorgos Noussias. It's only drawback, running zombies. But what the hell, nobody is perfect. I watched this movie without the benefit of subtitles and it was still an excellent flick. It had a comedic horror presence that came through loud and clear even without dialogue. But really, dialogue in a zombie movie is just fluff anyway. The sound of ripping flesh, breaking bones, screams and moans doesn't need translation, and the only information we need, "aim for the head", we already know.
The movie begins with three miners in an underground cavern, being attacked by an unseen "something". They don't seem to be aware of this though. Later the three miners develop the usual zombie symptoms of biting and eating people. The film follows two groups of survivors and their misadventures in the Athens. The two groups finally merge and the the fun continues. This movie is full of gore, and some of the best kills I've seen in a long time. I enjoyed the unique editing in this film, paneled frames, quick cuts and even a zombie POV cam. The sound was good and appropriate for a zombie movie. The ending was superb in my opinion, but I don't want to spoil it.
Take on the zombie characteristics in this film, and run and get a copy of this movie.
