THE DEVIL INSIDE – SO BAD THAT THE VATICAN SHOULD AUTHORIZE AN EXORCISM FOR IT…PURE EVIL TO CHARGE MONEY FOR THIS MESS
DON’T WASTE YOUR MONEY!!!
We were actually pretty excited to see this film since we are HUGE fans of the horror genre. The commercials looked great and seemed to want to immerse moviegoers into the hidden world of exorcisms. Instead, the disaster of a film actually seems more like a thinly veiled Blair Witch Project knockoff.
The story follows Isabella Rossi (Fernanda Andrade) as the subject of a documentary aimed at finding out the reason why her mother (Suzan Crowley) snapped and killed three people. Isabella learned from her father that her mother killed three church members during an exorcism and travels to Italy to see her mother in a mental institution.
The first annoying thing about this movie is that it is shot as if it is a documentary. A lot of moving camera rubbish and motion. We almost felt sea-sick watching the camera constantly move. We all know that this is not a true story so why even go through the motions of making this look like an “authentic” documentary.
The second problem is that this movie is way too short. Viewers feel shafted shelling out cash for tickets when they don’t get a nice bang for their buck. It’s barely an hour and a half long.
Again, it seems like the intent here was to follow a typical documentary style format but there are so many things wrong with where they left off. The audience actually booed. We hate when random dialogue is given in the movie and nothing comes to fruition to explain it. Don’t set-up the sequel until you can get the first film right.
Finally, there were small things that bothered us. For instance, shouldn’t the steering wheel be on the right side of the car if they were really in Italy??? Especially if the intent is to pass this off as a “real” event. There were camera angles that would not have been possible as well. We don’t want to spoil the ending for those of you that make the decision to see this debacle despite the warning, but it is completely unbelievable.
One of the few bright spots in the movie comes from Crowley’s performance which is just downright disturbing at times. She does crazy a little too well.
Do yourself a favor and wait for this one to make its way to cable. While the couple next to us in the theater enjoyed The Devil Inside, they were the only two in the theater who felt that way. The reason we can say that with confidence is the number of boos and hisses that we heard along with several expletives. Save your soul and your money.
