Librarian Deborah (Natasha Lyonne) just inherited her father’s small cinema. The cinema is specialized in horror movies and it’s struggling. Deborah’s mother Tammy (July Caitlin Brown) wants to sell the cinema, which is simply impossible for Deborah. When Tammy pushes her, Deborah cracks and kills her. By mistake the murder is filmed by the cinema’s security cameras and silmutaneously projected onto the big screen. But the audience, foremost the cinema’s biggest fan Steven (Thomas Dekker), believe it to be an original short movie. And suddenly the people are fighting to get into the cinema – and Deborah needs to keep up the supply of short films.
All About Evil is absolutely fantastic. While it might not be the best movie ever made, qualitatively speaking, it’s a movie that carries its heart on its sleeve. The love for its genre is absolutely endearing and gives the film its greatness.
