The Field Guide to Evil (2019) – movie review

Here we have an international anthology film that centres around myths, legends and folktales coming from 8 different countries around the world. In The Field Guide to Evil, each filmmaker brings on the screen one of the tales from their country, trying to explore its horror roots and psychological motif.

A Nocturnal Breath – The Field Guide to Evil

The reason why I approached the people at Legion M. (the distribution company behind this anthology) is that some of the segments in The Field Guide to Evil are directed by filmmakers I either love or am very intrigued by. In particular, I was very curious to watch the short stories by Veronika Franz & Severin Fiala (the duo behind my favourite horror film of 2014, Goodnight Mommy), Can Evrenol (Baskin and Housewife) and Katrin Gebbe (who directed the very disturbing drama Tore Tanzt).

Due to my notorious nit-picky habits and the flawed nature of horror anthologies, I went in expecting to find at least three decent segments. I would have been happy with just that!

However, I was positively shocked by the overall high quality of The Field Guide to Evil, easily one of the best anthologies I had the pleasure to witness in the past few years. The movie is set to have a limited theatrical release in the US from July 26 and is already available on VOD (from the 29th of March). Get ready!

In fact, this project had been backed up by solid studios around the world (among which Universal Studios clearly stands out), resulting in a high-quality viewing experience with mostly fantastic production values and visuals.
