Movie Reviews

"This film makes no sense. So, these people move into a house, right? It's supposedly haunted, and everytime they move stuff in and take stuff out, some ghost says in the cheesiest voice ever "GO AWWAAAYYY! IT'S MIIINNNE!" And this guy keeps seeing weird things in the house. Well, one night, the guy decides to run out of the house for no reason whatsoever and jumps on a white horse that just happens to be there. He then rides it into some hippy bar, meets a blond chick, bangs her, and then goes back to the house. The wife says that he was hurting her and um...doin' things to himself, if ya' know what I mean. And he denies it and says that he was out all night. And then, he gets in his car, goes to this blond girl's house, and does her underwater. He then goes back to the house and kills his wife under the influence of the cheesey sounding ghosts. The credits roll.

This is a horrible movie. It makes no sense. The acting sucks. It's totally pointless. I can't believe I wasted two dollars on this horrible DVD. The description on the back of the box makes it sound good, but it's not. Avoid this at ALL COSTS! This might actually be worse than a UWE BOLL film..."

"Contrary to 'that' review this film is quite good. Although not perfect. The lead cast is VERY GOOD. The characters pull you in. The score was actually just released on CD, it is incredible. This is a bizarre film, no doubt. Watch the dream."

"If you're watching A NAME FOR EVIL expecting a nail-biting spook-fest, forget it! In reality, this is your typical arty / experimental movie from 1970. Robert Culp is a man in the throes of a mid-life crisis, who quits his corporate job and settles into his great-grandfather's ancient, remote, and dilapidated mansion. This would be fine if he didn't drag his wife (Samantha Eggar from The Collector, and The Brood) along. She thinks he's bananas and is dead-set against the whole idea. Fortunately, the house is apparently haunted by gramps and things get semi-interesting. Culp goes out one night to a local bar, only to find himself stark naked w/ the entire unclothed stage cast of HAIR! After much tribal dancing and various organ flopping, Culp scores w/ some hippie babe. Things get weird from here, w/ plenty of nudity, including underwater shagging! Ms. Eggar's clothes disappear at one point as well, while Culp acts like a goon. ANFE isn't the greatest movie ever made, but if you like late 60s/early 70s "head-trip" films, it should float your yellow submarine just fine, man..."
Neat...I enjoyed it

"although the storyline is spotty in parts of the movie, the setting and location for the film are superb. What a eerie looking old place. Robert Culp's acting is good, however some of the other characters could have been better. This film is very low budget. Theres supose to be a book that inspired the film, I have yet to find this in print. A city couple move away from the rat race city to start a new life in the greatgrand fathers old mansion in the isolated woods, and are encountered by supernatural forces in a dream like setting. Worth checking out."
