Quick Review: THE EVIL (1978)

A near-forgotten "haunted house" picture from the late 70's, The Evil is a passable horror film with an intriguing premise: a group of psychiatry students led by their professor, rent an abandoned mansion to use as a drug rehabilitation center, only to discover that an evil force, maybe even the devil himself, dwells there. Although the script is good, the dialogue sharp, and the performances adequate, Gus Trikonis's pedestrian direction, and second-rate optical effects make this nothing more than a watchable hour and a half.
