Surviving Evil: Flawed jungle horror
5 October 2017 | by PlatypuschowSee all my reviews

I'm a fan of Billy Zane, in fact I'd go as far as to say I'm a big fan of his so it always pains me to see him in movies like this. The man has the acting chops and natural comedic timing so should be gracing our screens in high budget efforts not things like this.

Telling the story of a famous television survivalist and his film crew visiting a Phillipino island full of nasty creatures that funnily enough ruin their shoot.

The movie has little in the way of originality but does certainly have its moments. It's weakness besides the fact we've seen it all before is a dreadful ending which damages the entire film. Not sure if they did that ending because they expected to make a sequel, but that was very naive if the case.

Surviving Evil is a watchable piece with a decent enough cast and surprisingly decent sfx considering its budget but just pretend the film ends five minutes before the end.

The Good:

Billy Zane

Looks the part

The Bad:

Beyond dumb ending

Things I Learnt From This Movie:

The creators had no clue of the weight of gold

The sanscript name for Jungle is Jungala
