Netflix is cranking homers like Barry Bonds. With “Little Evil”, their creative chops are shown-off once more.
To avoid spoilers, we will quickly point-out that for broad-strokes purposes, “Little Evil” plays out like a satiric-comedy take of “The Omen” about that scary little kid named “Damien”, who happens to be the anti-christ. Don’t worry, you pick that sentiment up right away.
“Lucas” is a strange kid, who tries his best to dress like Angus Young from ACDC, talks people into harming themselves and has the bedroom of a future serial-killer. Not an ideal step-son.
But wait, (heart flutters), Evangeline Lilly plays the boy’s mother, "Samantha". I get it “Gary”. Still, very not-ideal overall.
There are tons of great cameos, and the film is very funny. “AL” is a great supporting character. The production-level is very solid. “Little Evil” certainly has something for everyone.
Overall: Must Watch - Possible family-night movie, if you suspect your step-son of possibly being the anti-christ, and you want to see how he reacts to your movie choice.
