History of Evil (2024)

In the near future, war and corruption have plagued America and turned it into a theocratic police state. Against the oppression, ordinary citizens have formed a group called The Resistance. One such member, Alegre Dyer, breaks out of political prison and reunites with her husband Ron and daughter Daria. On the run from the militia, the family takes shelter in a remote safe house. But their journey is far from over, as the house’s dark past begins to eat away at Ron, and his earnest desire to keep his family safe is overtaken by something much more sinister.


Shudder distributes the film via their streaming service in the US.

On describing the film, star Paul Wesley was quoted saying: “not only a genuinely terrifying thriller, but it is also a story that is deep in metaphor and very much a cautionary tale — and quite relevant to today.” Adding… “Personally, I feel that the best genre films are those that provoke thought and have deeper meaning, and our film History of Evil very much accomplishes that.”  (1/31/24)
