As Monika wrote in her review of “Leslie, My Name is Evil”, “between the polished pictures and the bubbly trailer, buzz has been good for Canadian filmmaker Reginald Harkema’s latest- Leslie, My Name is Evil. It’s hard to resist the fun, John Waters-esque feel, the beautiful lead, and another look into one of the most infamous cult murderers of all time. But this film is not just some slice of camp horror like the media suggests. Believe it or not, Leslie, My Name is Evil is a biting social and political satire that you may or may not be ready for.” So to help promote the film, we’ve been provided with 6 clips. Take a look after the jump:
Here’s the official synopsis:
Perry, a sheltered chemist, falls in love with Leslie, a former homecoming princess, when he is selected to be a jury member at her hippie death cult murder trial. Perry has always done what is expected of him. He was a straight-A student who got a good job at a chemical company and proposed to his Christian girlfriend, Dorothy. Leslie took a different path after she was traumatized by Kennedy’s assassination, an abortion and the divorce of her parents. She took LSD, joined a hippie death cult and helped murder a God-fearing citizen in her own home. When Perry and Leslie lock eyes in court, Perry is forced to confront the darkest parts of him and by extension, society. LESLIE, MY NAME IS EVIL is a film that explores how the choic es Perry and Leslie make reflect upon the moral choices our society has made.
