Devil Inside, The (15)

Horror, Thriller

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.

The critical consensus

Even the most gullible sensation seekers should avoid this skimpy, poorly shot and incoherent entry in the exorcism stakes.

It might only be the end of February but it looks like The Devil Inside has the award for Worst Movie Of 2012 in the bag.

John Patterson, The Guardian, 25/02/2012

A ludicrous shaggy-devil story punctuated by jarring foundfootage frights, this is a low-budget, low-watt belly botherer saved from history’s dustbin by a few gruesome moments and a gob-smack of an ending that (almost) makes it worth the slog.

**(*)(*)(*)Ken McIntyre, Total Film, 20/02/2012

Even with The Exorcist in the world, there is still scope for a contemporary, shocking and thrilling film to be made on the subject of possession. But this is not it: some found footage should really just stay lost.

**(*)(*)(*)William Thomas, Empire Online, 12/03/2012

There are some nicely spooky moments – such as a baptism that goes awfully wrong – but then, out of nowhere, comes an ending that undoes all the filmmaker’s good work. What possessed them?

David Edwards, Daily Record, 16/03/2012

The Devil Inside is yet another dull found footage effort with nothing, bar a mad climax, to offer audiences.

**(*)(*)(*)Martyn Conterio, Little White Lies, 19/03/2012

William Brent Bell's horror is big on screaming and short on originality and thought. Enough to make your head spin 360 degrees with boredom.
