I Had A Blast, A Funny Low Budget Horror Homage
31 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Evil Cult is quite an achievement, especially when you factor in that they were working on an extremely low budget. As is the case, with almost any micro budget film, some of the actors' cannot act. Most of the time, this is because they are untrained, and just friends with the director, or a crew member. Evil Cult suffers from this as well, but they delivered the goodies where they counted, so I found it easy to overlook some of the shoddy acting. Neil Taylor does a good job as the wisecracking hero, and even reminded me of genre icon Bruce Campbell, early in his career. The gore was present, and they even managed to build some suspense. It's been a while since I've viewed this film, but I don't recall any significant T and A, and you know what? I honestly didn't care, which really says something about the overall quality of Evil Cult. The homages to classic movies like Evil Dead are frequent, and although this is far from the breakthrough achievement Evil Dead was, I would still keep my eye on the director. All in all the carnage was fun, the blood flowed freely, and I laughed out loud, quite often. I recommend this, as long as you aren't to picky about some of the bad acting, mostly from the villain who pops up later in the film.
