After 5 long years in purgatory, Todd & The Book of Pure Evil: The End of The End: The Animated Feature Film (or TATBOPE: TEOTE: TAFF for short, lol) is finally seeing the full release it deserves. Affectionately referred to by fans as a foul-mouthed Buffy the Vampire Slayer, the Canadian cult classic will find it’s way to DVD/Blu-Ray later this year after a brief theatre tour. For the uninitiated, Todd & The Book of Pure Evil follows four teenagers that stumble upon a book that has the power to make their deepest and darkest desires a reality. But with great evil power, comes great evil irony. All the stands between us and the end of the world as we know it are four hormone fueled nightmares. But the show was cancelled after two short season. Thankfully, the animated feature, The End of the End, picks up right were we left off.
Todd & The Book of Pure Evil: The End of The End returns to Crowley Heights to find Todd, Jenny and Curtis grieving the loss of their dear friend Hannah, whose death may or may not have been caused by Todd’s banishing of the Book. The three must reunite to fight evil when the Book of Pure Evil returns to Crowley High, bringing with it some familiar faces (Guidance Counsellor Atticus Murphy Jr., Jimmy the Janitor, and The Metalhead Dudes) as well as some new foes, such as the Sweater Vest Beast and an Acidic Acne-Faced Teen. But these enemies are merely warm-ups to the final battle with their greatest nemesis yet: The New Pure Evil One, whose intimate knowledge of our heroes may ultimately lead to their destruction!
The Space Channel announced in 2012 that Todd and the Book of Pure Evil was not renewed for a third season. After a successful Indiegogo campaign, the showrunners went on to animate what will be Todd’s final chapter. The film is currently making it’s way across Canada for a series of one-day events before it’s release December 12, through Raven Banner. Todd & The Book of Pure Evil: The End of The End: The Animated Feature is directed by Craig David Wallace and Richard Duhaney, written by Charles Picco and Craig David Wallace, starring Alex House, Maggie Castle, Bill Turnbull, Melanie Leishman, Chris Leavins, and Jason Mewes.
