With Ghostbusters gone and already circling the memory drain, here’s 2016’s frankly superior, no-budget depiction of the porous membrane between the worlds of the living and the dead.
Another Evil starts with Dan Bakkedahl’s slovenly psychic reassuring new homeowners that their haunting is perfectly benign, if terrifying. So far, so hilarious, but the film then calls upon the pure comic genius of Better Call Saul’s Mark Proksch (a.k.a. Zim-Zam Yo-Yo sad sack Kenny “K-Strass” Strasser) to offer a convoluted second opinion, whereupon Another Evil becomes the most weirdly funny movie of the year. A couple of seriously freaky, J-horror-calibre scares only add to the already outrageously entertaining kicks.
