Little Evil (2017)

Listen, I’m all for brevity for it’s own sake, particularly when it comes to concept-heavy comedy-horror hybrids, which often mistake an inspired concept for an interesting plot. Here however, this movie gets going before the audience has any clue what’s going on, forcing the screenplay to force-feed its own narrative history into the dialogue, which results in stiff, clumsy interactions. Adam Scott is wasted in his role here, bringing his usual befuddled charisma but finding nothing to work against. It’s a shame because there’s a story to be told here, it just didn’t happen well this time.
