The Evil Down the Street is horror-light. There’s nothing wrong with that; horror, after all, comes in all shapes, sizes, and flavors. There’s still more than enough to keep you invested throughout the 97-minute runtime once the first third gives way to the more evenly paced and less rushed middle third and the strong (and surprisingly positive) finish.” Get on My Damn Level!!


“The Evil Down the Street has all the key components to be something bigger than it ended up being. If the horror volume was tuned up several notches, it could have easily been a subgenre sleeper hit. Instead, it ended up being a well-polished, expertly filmed and performed piece of cinema that won’t keep the attention of its target audience.” Horror Society

“There are some atmospheric moments and jump scares in The Evil Down the Street. Quite a few of them in fact, it does what it does well. It’s better than a lot of these films like First House on the Hill or Ouija Seance. It has some good performances too, especially from Jones in a role that’s the opposite of the one he played in Dry Blood. But the familiar material and handling keep dragging it back down.” Voices from the Balcony
