FanTrust Client Todd & The Book of Pure Evil Goes Further Than Buffy
Todd & the Book of Pure Evil is a Canadian horror-comedy that combines the best parts of Degrassi High, Trailer Park Boys and the first third of David Cronenberg’s career. Set at Crowley High, a location that looks borrowed from The Breakfast Club, this Winnipeg-shot series touches on the occult, heavy metal, adolescent desires and a secret band of Satanists operating out of an old-age home.
“We’re dealing with subject matter that I really like, but you never think other people would really resonate with,” says Craig David Wallace, 35, a Vancouver native who created the series at the Canadian Film Centre in 2001. “I wanted to write about a heavy metal kid who makes a deal with the devil and, since he’s in high school, all he really wants is the hottest girl in the school.”
