Evolution of Evil is a 2018 American survival horror feature film written, co-produced and directed by Kevin Forrest. The Great Notion Filmmaker Collective production stars Erin McGarry, Dennis Fitzpatrick, Michael Draper and Nikki Flinn.


Pacific Northwest couple Lori (Erin McGarry) and Christopher (Michael Draper) go on a camping trip to unwind in the great outdoors. However, getting away from it all has never been so dangerous. The couple makes their way past the usual campsites, and backpack into the remote Mt. Hood Wilderness area…


“There is so much work put into the subtle art of atmosphere and suspense. The acting is on point, raw at moments, and polished at others when the storyline requires it. The camera work mirrors this beautifully. For a movie that can be a slow burn at times, it has a visual style that keeps the audience entranced and engaged the entire time.” Pop Horror

“Inside Evolution of Evil there is a good movie, it was well made, the acting is good, and the plot decent enough (first time I think I have ever seen a character talked to death!), I just wish more had been focused on this aspect rather than getting lost in the splendour of the forests where this was filmed.” The Rotting Zombie

” …a quite captivating survival shocker that manages to drag one in via expert use of unusual camerawork, including staying (physically) closer than usual to the characters, to a point where it’s (intentionally) uncomfortable, using weird camera angles, working with suggestions rather than actually showing everything, and staying (seemingly) too long with certain shots to create creepiness.” Search My Trash
