    Review: The Evil Within

    Okay, I think I can start breathing again. I’ve survived the gore-soaked head trip that is Shinji Mikami’s The Evil Within, the newest successor to survival horror’s bloody, barbed-wire crown. I’ve limped down countless scummy blood-soaked hallways, had my brains bashed in by a giant […]
