Musty TV's Maniacal Movie Countdown - Day 16: Little Evil (2017)

I'm not sure why I waited this long to finally watch Little Evil, a comedic riff on movies like The Omen and The Exorcist. Maybe it was the presence of terrible people Evangeline Lilly and Chris D'Elia in the cast? Or maybe it's just that my Netflix watch list is awfully long, and things can get easily overlooked.

And the casting, aside from those two, is otherwise pretty amazing, with Adam Scott leading the pack as a stepfather trying to connect with his new stepson, who may be the devil. Bridget Everett is a fellow stepdad (yes, stepdad) in a counseling group that includes Donald Faison and Kyle Bornheimer. Sally Field also makes an appearance as a social worker.

There are plenty of laughs, and a few scares, but most surprisingly it's actually kind of...touching?

Little Evil is available to stream on Netflix.
