“Evil Alive”

Tweetable Logline:

An escaped demon on a mission manipulates a group of friends so they don’t know who to trust as they struggle for survival.

Elevator Pitch:

EVIL ALIVE is an innovative supernatural horror movie that delves into the dark waters of primal fears. Kendra, AJ, Mar and Dwayne are former college friends who are growing apart. Attempting to hang on to their good old college days, the gang gets together for a night of stories, pranks and beer. As their evening progresses, they unknowingly release a clever, manipulative demon that had been trapped for centuries in Salem. The night takes a terrifying turn as the group of friends must determine what is real and who they can trust in order to survive the demon’s malevolent purpose.

About the Production:

“What starts out as a fun gathering for a group of friends slowly turns into hellish living nightmare that they become desperate to escape. While EVIL ALIVE is a heart-pounding, entertaining, roller-coaster ride, it’s also a psychological human story with relatable characters. EVIL ALIVE follows relatable flesh and blood characters who are multi-layered with hopes, flaws and baggage. Not only is EVIL ALIVE a movie that horror fans will find wickedly enjoyable, but it’ll be riveting entertainment for others as well.” — Jeremy Wechter
