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.
It's a funny old game, the movie business.
You can try and ply your craft for years and end up a commercial failure despite making movies that should have reached a wider audience. We all know of such travesties, and wallow in a gloomy fog of despair as they are crushed, forgotten or merely swept aside to make way for samey samey treading water run of the mill been there seen it done it, or more succinctly covering old ground only to make a few bucks from those of us looking for something new in a worn garment.
The Devil Inside fits neatly into that last category. It follows in the wake of a hundred other such flicks, and sticks…
this deserves the iconic F on cinemascore and then some
Oh, it's fine. The notorious F Cinemascore and abysmal reputation are based on an ending that is no more abrupt than literally any other found footage movie, only this one made a misguided attempt to advertise some extra-textual viral marketing before the credits roll. Despite what you may have heard, this film is actually complete, though the ending is sorta anticlimactic, but I think that's because director/co-writer/co-editor WBB was admirably trying to show some restraint, just in the wrong place. Otherwise, this is a completely adequate found footage exorcism movie with some fine acting and a few genuinely creepy bits.

This film doesn't exactly bring anything new to the table. I like possession movies but this one is kind of pointless and forgettable. Its got cool stuff like limbs being twisted out of place, suicides, infant drowning and it even gets bloody in some parts. But the acting is crap, not even in a funny way. If you're a total nerd for possession horrors and got nothing else to do with yourself then it maybe worth a snoop.
the worst film i have ever seen in my entire life, i cannot even believe just how bad it really was
The Devil Inside is a 2011 found-footage religious horror film. Directed by William Brent Bell (Stay Alive) starring Fernanda Andrade and Suzan Crowley the film was shot on a small budget in Romania, Italy and the Vatican City.
The Devil inside follows the supposed demonic possession of Maria Rossi (Crowley) and her daughter Isabella's (Andrade) investigation to uncover the meaning behind her multiple murders and subsequent confinement to an Italian asylum. Once in Italy she discovers the exorcist academy and meets 2 local priests who agree to show her an exorcism to greater determine whether her mother is indeed possessed. The film culminates with Maria having an exorcism performed on her however the ritual has a seriously adverse effect on…
A perfect representation of my ex girlfriend......
Bottom shelf found footage. Carries one along on the typical found footage/mockumentary format, engaging us little to none in the characters and spinning all of its wheels without much of anything scary. Then, it has the balls to pull what could be the worst ending of a mainstream horror film in recent years. The forgettable majority of the film is eclipsed my a massive failure of an ending.
The surprise success of the PG-13 rated THE EXORCISM OF EMILY ROSE kicked off a resurrection of exorcism/possession films that were a common thing(and one of the most popular film subgenres[mainly from Italy]) in the 70s. This found footage exorcism film is one of the worst,as it depicts a young woman who travel to Italy to a hospital where her demon possessed mother is locked away,with the demon within her soon pursuing the daughter,with everything leading to a truly idiotic dark finale. The film is extremely ludicrous in the execution of its storyline and the way it displays itself,making everything seem so unbelievable. It's a film so absolutely dopey that it makes THE LAST EXORCISM look like shiny,sparkling gold. Needless to say,it made enough successful box office revenue to continue the two trends of both possession films and found footage thrillers(in spite of the box office failure of the recent possession film THE VATICAN TAPES).
