Step Inside For The Evil Within Footage

The invoices of evil.


I watched this video for the The Evil Within and all I could think about was who signed the invoices for the components in the room of blades? After all, this is supposed to be a working care facility for people with severe mental disabilities, so there's going to be a paper trail. It's not a small machine: it is industrial-sized, and it spins on either side of a room, blades whirring as it slowly grinds victims. Is it a paper shredder? Who ordered it? And where did it come from? Is there an Evil Innovations catalogue, written by a biting staff writer, subbed by a production editor with a murky past before he hands it off to the dark art dept? And is it laid out in a Adobe InDesign (already pretty evil, tbh)?

Most of the footage is an extension of the recently released TGS trailer, so you get a little bit of context for that nonsense. It doesn't make it look any less hokey, to be honest. But I appear to be in the minority in finding it all just a bit too ridiculous.

The Evil Within is without next year. Or is it? Mwahahaha! MWhAhahaAHHAA! MWAHAHAHAHAHAAHA! Sorry. I was thinking about an episode of Bottom. Yes, it's out next year.
