Kill The Fog, Keep The D.P. by stypee January 27, 2005 - 7:28 AM PST

Watching "Adam & Evil" is like getting stuck at a wedding with a cheesy D.J. obsessed with his fog-machine. I'm not clear if it was a decision on lenses or if the crew was smoking a bit too much behind the camera; but the look of the project, from start to finish, warrants an annoying headache. Even when there is no need for fog, it's always present.

We open with your typical nightmare sequence, exhausted from horror films before this one. With many of the actors appearing to have either walked off the stage of a bad high school play or some just giving lukewarm performances in an awkwardly directed film. There isn't anything particularly original about this movie. In fact, it's rather annoying.

A group of idiot kids, who just graduated high school take a camping trip, stop at a gas station, learn about a mass-murderer in "the woods", ignore the warning and proceed. What lay ahead are some of the cheesiest and most absurd plot twists, I'll admit to feeling pretty stupid for not figuring out who the murderer was but I was dumb-founded as to why the hell I kept watching this wretched piece of boredom.

It lacks anything original and while I compliment the fairly nice camera work, there's nothing here to amuse even the occasional horror fan. The effects are limp, it's not scary and when we hit night sequences, it's literally fog and (metaphorically speaking) mirrors shot via outdoor soft lighting. All in all "Adam & Evil" is an unsatisfying and frustrating experience that should only be viewed as a guide for what not to do in the realms of independent and at this point of the game, badly cliched horror slasher films.
