History of Evil

Directed by Bo Mirhosseni

In the near future, war and corruption have plagued America and turned it into a theocratic police state. Against the oppression, ordinary citizens have formed a group called The Resistance. One such member, Alegre Dyer, breaks out of political prison and reunites with her husband Ron and daughter Daria. On the run from the militia, the family takes shelter in a remote safe house. But their journey is far from over, as the house’s dark past begins to eat away at Ron, and his earnest desire to keep his family safe is overtaken by something much more sinister.

Paul Wesley and Jacke Cruz star in this near future haunter about a safe house with a dark past.

Cast: Paul Wesley, Jackie Cruz, Murphee Bloom, Rhonda Johnson Dents

This was very slow and did not provide much for the scares. Seemed to provide more of a real life political horror movie which for someone else might be scary.

Just because a film has a political stance you agree / disagree with does not necessarily make it good or bad. The film is built around a very good idea - linking the deep history with the near future to effectively critique the present (which is how we get from history to the near future) in the format of a horror film. But while the film is politically confident, it is narratively uncertain. It isn't sure if it wants to be an out an out ghost / horror story or if it wants to pursue the political thriller more. Both could have been cracking films but together they are awkward and unfulfilling. Positives: the setting is good, there are some effective creepy moments and some well staged freaky weird scenes. The performers are very good in roles that are deliberately left vague and unclear. They are just people in a particular place at a particular time, trying to survive and deal with the horror they find. Which might be a really good metaphor for the here and now.

This movie was recommended by a few creators on Tiktok but there was nothing good about. The acting was bad and the plot was lost. It had a couple of potential build ups but didn't deliver.
