I work at a movie theater and patrons mess up movie titles all the time. Here are some of the…
The Devil Inside
No soul is safe.
In Italy, a woman becomes involved in a series of unauthorized exorcisms during her mission to discover what happened to her mother, who allegedly murdered three people during her own exorcism.
I was possessed by a nap when I tried to watch this.
Demonic possession and exorcisms are back in vogue but none of the recent crop come remotely close to their ‘70s counterparts. The Devil Inside is arguably the worst of this recent trend thanks to the fact it isn’t remotely scary, is shoddily made and has a ridiculously bad ending. The found footage dynamic never once convinces thanks to some very wonky acting whilst it utterly fails as a horror film as it doesn’t build suspense and is totally devoid of scares. Even the dodgiest found footage films normally have at least one effective and cheap jump scare but this has nothing, instead it just plods along event-free.
The only thing The Devil Inside elicits is laughs and boredom. The script…
Ever since The Exorcist redefined the meaning of supernatural and psychological horror forty years ago, every keen horror filmmaker has had one eye on reproducing that same primal, terrifying alchemy of demonic possession. The Devil Inside, it has to be said, must surely rank as one of the worst attempts to capture that same feeling of helpless fear of the human body & mind being taken over by the darkest recesses of existence. William Brent Bell's 'mockumentary', fused with touches of found footage, turned out to be a huge surprise hit in a barren post-Christmas landscape as it sought to cash in on a popular style of filmmaking, serving up however a lukewarm concoction of cheap scares and a maddening lack…
Gosh! Such a lot of half star and one star reviews on here, and an awful lot of hate! I would say that his film is distinctly mediocre and as Mark Kermode would say it, it's remarkable only in how completely unremarkable it is. It's not good, nor is it a steaming pile of turd.
Anyway, this is your usual exorcism type story except that they've tried to put a different spin on it here by doing it in the form of a fly on the wall documentary. Or at least I think so because I'm not entirely sure that the film knew what it wanted to be. It seemed to start off in the style of a normal post…
The lowest rated film on Letterboxd this year and who decides to watch it anyway?
Yep. Moron Man strikes again.
Honestly, it deserves all the crap that has been flung at it and then some. The found footage genre has taken a turn for the worse lately and this film singlehandedly euthanises the whole genre. It is so appallingly bad that I am certain the actual Devil himself, Mr. Satan, good ol' Lucifer, was the one behind the film.
And Goddamnit if the Pope didn't know it! It says so on the poster! They didn't want us to see this because IT IS MADE BY SATAN!!!!
Definitive proof is given in the final scene. What they try to pull off there is pure, unfiltered evil.
Part of Worst 10 Films of 2012.
1. The Devil Inside
Though it begins as your standard exorcism fare it soon descends into a poorly scripted found footage horror that would’ve been better off staying lost. But what makes The Devil Inside the worst film of the year hinges on one aspect, its conclusion. At the end of the film a title card appears which tells its audience to visit their website for more information. To have the audacity to ask an audience to sit through such an outrageously awful film and then deliver a ridiculously manipulative ending with an embedded marketing campaign is truly horrifying. The Devil Inside is an exploitative mess that makes a mockery of the audience who paid money to see it.
Forget Deliver Us From Evil. This is the worst film I've encountered in this little horror experiment so far.
The Devil Inside should have been a direct-to-DVD bargain bin mistake you happened upon while drunkenly perusing the aisles of Wal-mart some lonely evening (as you do). Not a theatrical release with a marketing campaign and thousands of screenings in theaters boasting high quality sound and projection. It isn't worth any of that. I might never say it again, but I hope people were texting, loudly slurping drinks and throwing popcorn at each other (again, as you do) when this was playing, because it doesn't deserve its audience's respect. It certainly doesn't give…
Exorcise this s**t
So sloppy, poorly acted and incoherent that the "good" parts weren't even worth it. Ends abruptly and disatisfyingly. The only people I'd ever suggest this to would be found footage completionists.
worst movie ever
People laughed at the movie theater when i watched this '-'
Stupid. Had some good jumps at the start. No fucking reason to be found footage.
The only reason I give this movie half a star is that I can't give it zero stars. I hesitate to even call The Devil Inside a full-length feature.
Hated it. Absolute rubbish. I’m not even gonna dignify its existence with a review.
Pretty rubbish from what I remember.
The Devil Inside is a poster in search of a movie, and I'm really struggling right now to come up with a film that has a worse ending.
a list that is trying to contain every horror film made that is not lost and is found on the…
Horror movies are by far my favorite, so I've decided to make a list with all of them I remember…
