In Little Evil, Gary (Scott) has just married the perfect woman, Samantha (Lilly). He knows that her son Lucas (Owen Atlas) is a little strange, but Gary thinks Lucas just doesn’t like him. But Gary soon learns that Lucas might be the actual child of the devil after Samantha reveals that she once belonged to a cult.
Little Evil has been in the works for a long time. The Hollywood Reporter reported in May 2013 that Universal picked up the script. Over three years later, casting finally began, with Scott and Lilly joining. By then, Universal dropped out and Netflix stepped in. The film was produced by Scott Stuber’s Bluegrass Films and Mandalay Pictures.
Now, let’s meet the main cast of Little Evil.
