When John Fleton, a depressed suburban family man and recently fired realtor, offers to help a stranger, Richie, with his car, John is sucked into a surreal, nightmarish murder spree that forces him to question everything about his life, his mode of behavior, and the very nature of evil…
If you asked someone on the street what they believe horror is, they more than likely won’t tell you bad customer service, jerk bosses, and cheating spouses. They more than likely won’t tell you a picture perfect life is having two kids and a white picket fence. Meeting Evil, directed by Chris Fisher, delves into modern day horrors like the above and puts a twist on them. Based on the 1992 novel by Thomas Berger, Meeting Evil follows the story of John Felton, an average every day guy living in suburbia. On the same day John gets fired from his real estate job, a stranger named Richie shows up at his door and takes him on a murderous joyride through town. READ MORE
