The Devil Inside ½

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.
