I Watched So That You Don’t Have To: The Devil Inside

The Devil Inside is the latest take on the faux-documentary style horror film. Taking a page out of the movie that started it all, The Blair Witch Project, it proceeds to use every single tired cliché you can think of when it comes to the horror documentary and exorcism movies.

The story is about a woman who killed three people while an exorcism was being performed on her. She is institutionalized after being seen as not guilty by reason of insanity. The movie then cuts to 20 years later where her daughter with the help of a documentary filmmaker goes to find out if her mother is just mentally ill or demonically possessed. She gets two priests to do a couple of exorcisms that are unauthorized by the church. From there everything goes horribly wrong, and the only piece of evidence is the footage that was caught by the filmmaker.

The best thing about this movie is that it is only an hour 15 minutes long. I saw this movie for free and I want my money back. The scariest parts of the movie were in the trailer and even then those weren’t scary. I expected this because I really haven’t been scared by a movie since… I don’t know, but it’s been a while. It’s also pretty predictable as pretty much when the beginning when they mention something about an aspect of the exorcism tells you exactly what is going to happen to everyone.

The group I was with for the screening walked out laughing and talking about what a trash movie that was. We also determined that the movie was worse than what I thought was almost the worst movie of the 2011, The Darkest Hour. The worst. Honestly save your money people and if you really want to watch a movie this weekend go watch Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy. And if you are a glutton for punishment, the film is in theaters today.

  1. So. You told people to actually watch Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy? The movie that you fell asleep in? The movie that had a weird plot? With a million different languages spoken? With only one really cool scene (which occurred during the last 6 minutes)?

    Hmmm…you’re slippin homie. I rely on you for viewing advice. If you keep giving out sub-par advice, I may have to disown you faster than Beyonce did dem otha two chicks in Destiny’s child.

    1. Yes I did because the movie was good. I don’t see how the plot was weird. If you paid attention then u got the movie. Yes I fell asleep only for a couple of mins but I don’t think that takes away from the movie. It was shot really nicely and had some good acting and I love Colin Firth so there 😛
