Adam Scott Raises the Antichrist in Netflix’s ‘Little Evil’, From the Director of ‘Tucker & Dale vs. Evil’!

Imagine if The Omen were a comedy.

Halloween is coming early on Netflix as they’ll be giving birth to the son of Satan on September 1, 2017.

Adam Scott, who probably wants you to forget he starred in Hellraiser: Bloodline, stars in the horror comedy Little Evil as Gary (Scott), who just married Samantha (Evangeline Lilly) only to find out that her 6-year-old son (Owen Atlas) is the Antichrist.

Here’s the kicker: The film was written and directed by Eli Craig, who was behind the cult horror comedy Tucker & Dale vs. Evil!

The trailer just premiered and gives huge nods to The Omen, while also delivering all the laughs of Craig’s Tucker & Dale. This looks like an awesome pre-fall primer to set the stage for Netflix’s massive October, which includes the second season of “Stranger Things”.

 

Donald Faison and Chris D’EliaBrad Williams, Bridget Everett, Clancy Brown, Marcus Terrell Smith and Tyler Labine also star in Little Evil.

Bluegrass Films and Mandalay Pictures produced the project, with Scott Stuber, Jason Michael Berman and Dylan Clark producing and Nicholas Nesbitt and Mark Moran acting as executive producers.

The trailer first appeared on Buzzfeed.

    Might watch this, even though the damn kid in it gives me the creeps

  • Munchie

    I wish that had been funnier to me.

    Nah I’ll pass! Not a fan of this piece of shit Horror/Comedy sub-genre! A little dark humor is just fine, but when it’s deliberately intended to make you laugh while trying to keep you in suspense and/or grossed/freaked out forget it! That’s just my opinion of course.

    • Batmanfanboy

      Right, I forgot how awful Evil Dead 2 is. Horror would get so stale if you took it seriously all the time. Your opinion blows.

      • Necro

        I didn’t say anything about ‘Evil Dead 2’, I did say some dark humor is just fine. And that’s right it is my opinion.

    • Monkeymanbob

      Nah, Horror/Comedy is all part the rich tapestry of horror. Dead Snow, Sean of the Dead, Slither, et al – wouldn’t get rid oof any of them.

      • Necro

        Just ‘Shaun of the Dead’. And I agree it’s part of Horror and I definitely respect it. Really good gore in ‘Shaun’ I’ll give it that.

        • Josh_the_Jawa

          Don’t tell me you’re one of this gore hound horror fans…

          • Necro

            No I like all sub-genres. And to be clear when it comes to Horror/Comedy I guess it depends on how well it’s done. Example: ‘Evil Dead 2’ you don’t get more Horror/Comedy than that and that’s one of my favorite sequels of all time.

      Necro, have you never watched a horror movie where you’ve had several disparate feelings at once (not trying to be a smartass, I’m actually curious)? Or do you just not like it?

      • Necro

        I’ll put it to you like this these are the films I don’t like: 1) ‘Shaun of the Dead’ 2) ‘Zombieland’. My personal opinion points to films like that. Now I have all the ‘Evil Dead’ films, I have ‘Slither’, I have ‘Dead Snow’, and I’ll even throw ‘Hatchet’ in there because I’ve heard other fans reference that when talking about this particular topic. Does that help?

        • Elizabeth

          …not really. But that’s OK. I don’t need to understand 🙂

      • Necro

        I appreciate you not being a smartass because it’s my opinion. I don’t go around giving people shit when they don’t like or don’t approve of something that I like. It’s their opinion plain and simple.

        • Elizabeth

          Well you *did* call it a POS, so I can see where that might annoy some people. But I like to pick my battles and I try not to be rude unless someone really pisses me off.

  • Grimphantom

    The goat puppet is both funny and disturbing. If this is from the same guy from Tucker & Dale i will give it a look since it does look fun.

  • Creepshow

    This kid looks like Carl Grimes. So naturally, I want to punch him and shave his head.

    • Necro

      Holy shit yeah he does!

  • Elizabeth

    I love Clancy Brown. And I always forget Adam Scott was in Bloodlines (I compartmentalize a lot of that movie).

  • Sable’s new boytoy

    So this is Lil Nicky pt. 2? Will watch for Mizz Lilly but Adam Scott is working another failure joint here

  • Matt Miller

    It doesn’t look that fine but if it’s from the guy of Tucker and Dale vs Evil I have to give it a chance.
