Evil Little Things

The little things that go bump in the night want recognition!  Evil Little Things has arrived!

At some point in their lives, I suppose everyone has been a bit afraid of what lurks about in the dark.  It’s a big part of growing up and an even bigger part of what makes us human.  We like to be scared and, in return, share in our scares.  Which is why the horror anthology, when it comes to cinema, is always a delight.  These brief journeys into all things horror are wildly popular again and, with a little help from some wickedly devilish dolls, Evil Little Things proves to be a welcome distraction from quarantined life.

"Plan for many sleepless nights.  These shorts, while low in budget, are pretty intense and full of all sorts of unexpected danger and twists and turns"

Directed by Matt Green and starring Gremlins’ Zach Galligan, Hannah Fierman, Courtney Lakin, and Jonathan Horne, Evil Little Things collects three stories  and weaves them into one original horror movie similar in style and in tone to that of Creepshow.  And, with mad child’s toys as their central monsters, the results of this horror anthology are equally creepy and surreal.

Evil Little Things begins with a child who is hearing voices from under his bed.  He can’t sleep and, after causing some upheaval with his mother and his step-dad, is promised a toy to keep him company at night.  Enter the Toy Maker, who has dolls galore at his shop and more stories about them than anyone cares for . . . but this boy wants to hear them all.  Thus, Evil Little Things - written by Yasmin Bakhtiari and Nancy Knight - is born. {googleads}

The first story, about a maniac leprechaun, might have you yelling at the screen as our main protagonist does some pretty silly things while being chased by it, but when the porcelain starts to break around the leprechaun’s face and his true squishy self is revealed, you too will be chilled to the bone.  Get the hell away from this thing!  

This short film is followed by the Toy Maker’s introduction to Giggles and then to Patty, whose owner develops an unhealthy attachment to her collection of sinister dolls and they, not willing to share her with her boyfriend, plan some pretty dark things - like turning her into a living doll.  The third story is the main story as Giggles becomes this boy’s new friend, promising to protect him in the night from all sorts of evil . . . this includes his step-father.Evil Little Things

Plan for many sleepless nights.  These shorts, while low in budget, are pretty intense and full of all sorts of unexpected danger and twists and turns as blood is spilled in the name of demonic dolls coming to life and doing all sorts of wicked things to and in the lives of the humans unfortunate enough to cross their paths.

Evil Little Things are unleashed May 12 on DVD and Digital from Uncork’d Entertainment.
