Evil depicts life in a single-sex boarding school and what one person has to endure. Having been expelled from one day school for fighting, Erik ends up in a boarding school. Out of the frying pan and into the fire? An assured piece of film making - as the director attended such a boarding school himself - and a cast who play their parts brilliantly. As the tension increases you will be drawn into the story and forced to revise your opinion of the central character as he undergoes a period of intense change. Very powerful with knockout performances.

Thanks to Metrodome.


A film that left me with a knot in my stomach, feeling sick and exhilarated by turns. Director Hafstrom is masterly at turning up the tension notch by notch.
