Having previously just seen and reviewed The Boy here (click name to read the review), I thought I’d take some time out to review the director’s previous outing – The Devil Inside from 2012. (He did direct another film – Wer from 2013, but that one is sadly not even worth the review).
“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.”
This film, being set in Italy, is a little different to the usual American fanfare horror shit being pumped down our throats, but that is probably where the originality ends, sadly for this complete mess of a film.
I enjoy horror films (obviously), and usually Exorcism ones are right up my alley, if they’re done correctly (such as The Exorcist from 1973), but this one does everything wrong. It relies (once again!) on extremely loud noises, horrible flashing lights, twisting torso’s (unnaturally, I might add), and paranormal-activity-esque shitty camera movement/work.
Regardless of the “acting” being quite well done, this cannot save this utter piece of garbage and the horrid taste it leaves in the back of your throat.
I want my 80 minutes back 😦
