Felix Fojas (Nicholas Gonzalez)- flawed priest/ paranormal investigator- comes to investigate the loss of his lover Amanda
(who was cheating on her husband) after he has premonitions that something is coming after Amanda's daughter Sarah (Stevie
Lynn Jones). He has to deal with Amanda's resentful husband, a town Sheriff, and a school for the death that are all entangled
in this tale of sin, horror, and teenagers.
EVIL TAKES ROOT: THE CURSE OF THE BATIBAT is a throwback to the good horror movies you would see coming out of the 1980s
and 1990s. A well cast film helps this decently crafted horror film with plenty of foreshadowing. The only downside is
the movie paints witchcraft as evil with nothing to say there is also good witchcraft. It even sets up a sequel at the very
end. I am disappointed that this movie is only available on DVD.
Producers audio commentary track as they talk about the production, reshoots, and how the movie was reshaped in editing
Also you can play the movie with an isolated score track
10 deleted and extended scenes show scenes cut for pacing and cut away elements that were in the first cut of the film
Visual FX Reel looks at the special effects in the movie
An insert with a digital code is included where you can stream a digital HD version of the movie, but I wish Mill Creek
also released this movie on blu-ray instead of just DVD.
FINAL ANALYSIS: EVIL TAKES ROOT is a movie for someone who wants to watch a good solid horror movie with a possible sequel
in the future. Hopefully, Mill Creek will release this one to blu-ray at some point.
