The Devil Inside

The Devil Inside

Here we are at the half way point of our search for the worst movie of 2012 - and it really is downhill from here.

Today we look at the truly awful The Devil Inside which is in at number six.

If you have seen one exorcism movie then you really have seen them all and in recent years this genre of horror movie really has become a little samey.

Sadly The Devil Inside offers us nothing new if the early trailers and clips were full of promise.

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 Witch Project and, let's face it that is never going to happen as it has been done to death.

In this case it is really found footage that should have stayed lost as this just has an amateur feel from start to finish.

But the major problem is it lacks thrills, chills and scares and these are elements that really are essential if a horror movie is going to succeed.

Sadly it is not creepy or scary it is as dull as dishwater with lifeless characters that you couldn't give two hoots about and a story that we have seen a million times before.

You really do have to wonder how scripts like this get the green light to be made into movies - unfortunately there have been a lot of movies like this around in recent years.

There really is nothing positive to say about The Devil Inside as it has an awful script that is not brought to life by some hideous acting and it is one of those movies that should be avoided at all cost.

If you want to see a great exorcism movie then you really should watch the original and the best in the form of The Exorcism.
