Tonight my friend Hayley and I decided to see the movie The Devil Inside. I had high expectations going into the movie since it was made by the same people who made Paranormal Activity. But after seeing it, I want my money back.
One thing I did like about it was that it was really short and got to the point fast. But, it wasn’t scary, had terrible actors, and was very predictable. Hayley and I ended up making snarky comments the whole time, much to the chagrin of everyone around us.
The movie starts with a woman trying to figure out if her mom is possessed by demons and makes a documentary of it. She randomly finds some priests that magically decide to help her. But of course, they all one by one get possessed themselves and SPOILER ALERT they all die in a car crash. It was a horrible ending and the audience was left with a black screen with the text “The case is still unresolved.” Oh geez, thanks!
The only part that intrigued me was that all of the demon possessed people kept telling one priest that he’d never be forgiven for what he did to his uncle. The viewer never finds out what happened with his uncle, which I assume is a way for the filmmakers to make a sequel! Oh goodie….. But I’ll admit, I would still see the sequel just to see what happened with the guy’s uncle.
I’d give it -3 stars out of 5. Yep, negative three…
