There is a lot to hate about Meeting Evil. The script is terrible, the characters are cliched the soundtrack is hilariously bad... oh and it has that made-for-video-stephen-king feel about it. And yet strangely I enjoyed it enough to not switch off. Samuel L Jackson is having a hell of a lot of fun in this second-rate thriller and he relishes every moment. Luke Wilson does Luke Wilson and I don't mind that. Jackson plays a man who knocks on the front door of a suburban house where a regular everyday Joe (Wilson) opens up to an endless nightmare. Jackson is a serial killer and Wilson finds himself caught up in a brutal killing spree. The premise is actually fun and the situations did keep me wanting more. I wanted to see how far Jackson would push it. The director is Chris Fisher and to this point he has made a bunch of direct to dvd thrillers and action movies. Most notably was his audacious sequel to Donnie Darko. I don't mind this guy... he's got style and a clear vision but I think the problem is that he overreaches his own talent. I think we'll see some good stuff from him down the line and with each movie he makes, the talent pool improves... a great film is not far away for him. So Meeting Evil... a good bad movie. Fun stuff.
