Join us at the Rio Theatre for the premiere of writer-director Jason William Lee‘s THE EVIL IN US, a stylish and blood-soaked work of sci-fi horror that’s a bit CABIN FEVER meets EVIL DEAD. Filmmakers including Lee, producer Dalj Brar, editor Michael Gyori and actors Debs Howard and Marina Pasqua will be in attendance to both intro the film and participate in a post-screening Q&A.
When six school friends meet up for a fourth of July celebration on a remote island off the Washington coast, what they expect is a harmless weekend filled with fun and partying. Unfortunately, when one of them brings along some cocaine to amp up the good times, what they get is a mind bending trip filled with horror, chaos and murder. Unbeknownst to the friends, a sadistic, right wing terrorist organization has secretly funneled a new bio-active drug into the market disguised as cocaine. Anyone who consumes the drug is then exposed to a virus that causes fits of psychotic rage. Only one girl, Brie, refuses to take the drug and she alone must fight to stay alive as everyone around her, including her fiancé, attempts to savagely kill her. Her only hope may be a detective who is desperately trying to unravel the mystery behind the sadistic terrorist plot and save Brie before it’s too late. Trapped on the island, Brie must endure the unimaginable and survive a deadly game of cat and mouse or fall victim to the most heinous of fates.
“A rabid cross of CABIN FEVER and 28 DAYS LATER, THE EVIL IN US gets the bloody job done.” (Dread Central)
