~ Evilenko preying on a little girl

Andrej Romanovich Evilenko is the protagonist villain and title character of the film Evilenko. He is a Soviet serial killer, rapist, child molester, and cannibal who preys on children in his native Russia for decades, relying on the dysfunction in the Soviet police to escape detection. He is loosely based on real-life serial killer Andrei Chikatilo.

He is portrayed by Malcolm McDowell, who also portrayed Alex in A Clockwork Orange, Caligula in Caligula, Colonel F. E. Cochrane in Blue Thunder, Captain Von Berkow in The Passage, Tolian Soran in Star Trek: Generations, Gangster in Gangster No. 1, Geoffrey Tolwyn in the Wing Commander video game series, Kesslee in Tank Girl, Daniel Linderman in Heroes, The Shaman in the Aladdin TV series, Tower in Phineas and Ferb, Sinclair in Home Alone: The Holiday Heist, Lord Maliss in Happily Ever After, Arnold Gundars in I Spy, Arkady Duvall in Batman: The Animated Series, Mad Mod in Teen Titans, and Marcus Kane in Doomsday.


Evilenko is a pedophile and sexual sadist who is impotent unless he is abusing and murdering children. He is also a fanatical Communist whose homicidal rage grows fiercer as his beloved Soviet Union collapses during the late 1980s and early 1990s. He is married, but the union is largely a public show; he feels nothing for his wife, with whom he cannot perform sexually.

It is implied that Evilenko ensnares his victims by hypnotizing them.

He is fired from his job as a schoolteacher in the early 1980s after he attempts to rape a little girl in his class, although he blames his firing on anti-Communism. He gets a new job as a factory worker, but his failure to be promoted, coupled with his increasingly miserable marriage and economic position in the collapsing USSR, fuels a killing spree in which he rapes, murders, and cannibalizes dozens of children.

Vadim Timurouvic Lesiev takes over the investigation after the fall of the USSR, and finds and arrests Evilenko after using the forensic and profiling resources that the Communist regime had long refused to employ. Lesiev gets Evilenko to confess after empathizing with him about his rage at the fall of Communism and his long-hidden lust for children. After a sensational trial, Evilenko is found guilty of several murders and executed with a bullet to the back of the skull.
