Evil might never sleep, but there's a bloody good chance of the viewer nodding off while watching this dreadful psychological thriller starring a pre-fame Heather Graham and featuring a blink-and-you'll-miss-it appearance by Carrie-Anne Moss (who is given top billing on the UK DVD cover!).
According to director James Merendino, "the movie is about passive aggressive misogyny destroying femininity in this country". In other words it's a pretentious pile of indie semi-art-house twaddle from a director with ideas way above his station. The dialogue is stilted, the performances awkward, and the narrative disjointed. Merendino commands dreadful performances from all involved and makes every scene as mundane as possible, directing in a style that can only be generously described as perplexing.
