The Devil Inside

The Devil Inside

Starring: Fernanda Andrade, Simon Quarterman, Evan Helmuth, Suzan Crowley

Director: William Brent Bell & Joaquin Perea

Rating: 1/5

Now I have never been a big fan of the exorcism movies of recent years as they all seem to tread a very familiar and rather boring path.

But early trailers and clips of The Devil Inside promised more from the latest movie in this genre... wrong!!!

Yes unfortunately this movie is just as bad and as predictable as all the others.

In 1989, emergency responders received a 9-1-1 call from Maria Rossi (Suzan Crowley) confessing that she had brutally killed three people.

20 years later, her daughter Isabella (Fernanda Andrade) seeks to understand the truth about what happened that night.

She travels to the Centrino Hospital for the Criminally Insane in Italy where her mother has been locked away to determine if her mother is mentally ill or demonically possessed.

To say that I am getting a little bored with the documentary style filmed movies is a little of an understatement, it's what every horror movie seems to be doing at the moment and it is getting somewhat tiresome.

Directors hope to capture that fresh feeling of The Blair With Project and, let's face it that is never going to happen as it has been done to death.

I don't think that this style of shooting helped this movie at all as it just made it disjointed and frustrating from a viewer perspective as it prevented the build up of any tension.

And tension was another this that was absent from the movie as it was obvious from the word go what was going to happen, the predictability of things going from not great to really shit I could have written myself.

This movie is just bad on every level the script is as dull as dishwater and the acting is awful - all that rounded off by a poor end that made not sense at all.

There really is nothing good to say about The Devil Inside and it is a movie that you should stay well away from.

Please not more exorcism movies!!!!
