Conclusion:

This film was not screened in cinemas, has great main actors and directed by Chris Fisher who is known by the title S. Darko, successor of Donnie Darko who is totally failed. Meeting Evil is unfortunately another film of this director that will be quickly forgotten.

The script is incomplete and confusing with a lot of strange and illogical decisions. Director failed to fit all scenes and editing in some moments seemed as amateurish, while the music is totally missed the genre of the movie.

The best part of this movie is the acting. Luke Wilson and Samuel L. Jackson are wonderful played their roles, especially must be noted Samuel L. Jackson, who is able every screenplay to turn in a good role.

Meeting Evil is a film that is not too bad, but not great neither. If you have excess time you can look this film but if you don’t, don’t worry, you will not miss anything important.
