President Evil is a 2018 American comedy horror feature film directed by Richard Lowry (Apocalypse Rising; Alien Overlords; Dominion; Jessica: A Ghost Story) from a screenplay co-written with Gregory P. Wolk (Apocalypse Rising). The Giant Meteor Films production stars Christian Hutcherson, Johanna Rae and Jose Rosete.
Days before the November mid-term elections, three young girls who are a Muslim, Mexican and Haitian, are stalked by a deranged killer dressed as the POTUS.
“President Evil is frankly not a good movie […] The horror elements are basic and uninspired, and the comedy is lazy and seen every night on Fallon, Kimmel, Corden, Myers, Conan, Oliver, Noah, Bee, and SNL. On the upside, there are some pretty good Young Frankenstein references and one good Marx Brothers bit.” Alan Ng, Film Threat
“President Evil is a successful spoof of John Carpenter’s Halloween (1978). The story is very similar, and the film is even shot in the same way. The music by Robert Douglas is pretty close to Carpenter’s theme, and other similarities echo all the way down to the fonts being used. The movie is also a scathing parody of Donald Trump and modern politics.” John Miglione, Indie Horror Online
“I wish the filmmakers kept the political aspects as subtext and metaphor throughout the whole story, instead of dividing the ticket, as it were. A few parts of the movie were laugh out loud funny. Some of the humor is crude, at other times the jokes are quite sophisticated.” Curt Wiser, OC Movie Reviews
