976-Evil is a celebration of everything good and fun about 1980’s horror films: cheesy, eccentric, sexy and a little on the slow side, at first, but sprinkled with supernatural murders and a vague procedural to keep you caring. It spends quality time with its lead characters before things get bad, scary and gory. It's a little clustered, sure, but it's part of its charm, as it turns out.
So many isolated plot elements are thrown at us, and yet the story holds up. While the mystery is enjoyable, the film is all about ninety degree turns you didn't expect considering how the script focuses so much on dialog and character exposition. The second half is basically the first one but on steroids. A definite hero is eventually declared, by default, and ends up fighting something big...
Bullies beat each other up on week days but then play strip poker together on Friday night. The characters initially presumed secondary are revealed to be to be significant to the plot. Along the lines of the Nightmare on Elm Street, Demons and Child's Play franchises, it's a supernatural slasher with hints of possession, demonology, genie mythology, and with a strong, memorable gimmick.
