When we see a plotline like this it is inevitable to think of The Purge (2013), which could be a good thing or a bad thing. Because in Evil at the Door (2022), “one night every year the world sees an alarming surge in violent home invasions. This is no coincidence”. But there is more.
The real threat is a secret guild that has operated for nearly a century, known as The Locusts. Once a year this guild treats its members to a night of curated home invasions (aka, “runs”), known underground as “The Night of The Locusts”. With 180 minutes to do as they please with the occupants of the selected home, four masked men enter the home of Daniel and Jessica and begin to engage in sick, twisted games with them. Unbeknownst to the intruders, Liz, Jessica’s younger sister, is hiding under the bed. While the run time winds down, Liz plots her escape as The Locusts realize there is a traitor in their group. But will the division amongst the intruders be enough distraction for Liz to survive before The Locusts’ clock runs out?
This is the new movie of producer, writer, actor, editor, and director Kipp Tribble, a real man-at-arms of horror cinema that has also been behind titles like Coffin (2011), its sequel Coffin 2 (2017), and Char Man (2019).
The main cast of Evil at the Door (2022) is formed by Andrea Sweeney Blanco, Matt O’Neill, Sunny Doench, Kenny Yates, Richard Siegelman, Bruce Davison, John James, Robert Allen Mukes, Scott Hamm, Robert Felsted Jr., and the director Kipp Tribble.
On January 21, 2022, Evil at the Door (2022) will premiere on the official Terror Films channel, and one week after, on January 28th, the film will be available across digital and VOD platforms. Here you can watch its trailer.
