Reviews [click links to read more]:

“Some may find it a bit too stupid for their liking, but Evil Ed KNOWS how stupid it is, and wallows in it for the duration. With plenty of goofiness and gory gags to keep your sides splitting, it’s sure to entertain even the most jaded horror fans.”  Film Fiend

“The acting is atrocious, direction is nil and the effects range from pretty good to only so-so, but as those are the very qualities of the class of films it satirizes, all of that amazingly works in its favor.”  Cinemaspin
