The Devil Inside (2012)

movie blogathon poster

What I have taken the most satisfaction and pride from with my ‘Recommended By‘ blogathon is the few people who have watched & reviewed movies they have seen me write about. I feel honoured even one person reads my site never-mind goes out of their way to watch something based on my recommendation. And that theme continues today as my good friend Al from A Mixed Bag endured a movie I despised…….can’t say I didn’t warn you Al!!

Tyson Carter reviewed The Devil Inside and suggested … well, DARED … me to watch it. Now I think I will hate him until the end of time.

THE DEVIL INSIDE (2012)

 [Spoilers may lie ahead…..]

The film starts with a 911 call from a woman claiming she has killed three people, these turn out to be two priests and a nun, all killed apparently by Maria Rossi whom they were apparently attempting to exorcise. A trial finds Rossi not guilty on the grounds of insanity, resulting in her sent to an institute for the mentally challenged.

Then skip forward 20 years and Rossi’s daughter, Isabella tries to find more information by going to Rome to try to find what happened.

The film is recorded in the handheld camera method giving the impression of being a documentary. It follows Rossi Junior’s attempts to find out what happened to her mother and to see if she really is possessed. She has to travel from America to Rome to find the answers, and spends time in the mental hospital where her mother is now residing.

The film cuts between hand held cameras and security cameras in the hospital, causing the film to be very disjointed, and speech very quiet and inaudible. The acting – I should actually put a question mark on that and say “the acting?” – is some of the worst I have seen in a film, and I have seen a fair amount. At 25 minutes in, I was considering either becoming a monk or shoving needles in my eyes.

The continuity in the film is next to ridiculous, with people being tied down with white cloth that turns into leather straps, camera angles that vanish, people lying down and in the next shot sitting up, followed by lying down in the next shot. There is a point where someone dies in a hospital and a machine is bleeping to say that the person’s heart has stopped and there is no pulse, but this person was never attached to the equipment.

It is by far THE worst film I have ever had the displeasure of sitting through. There were parts that were supposed make you jump, but only result in a “pffft”.

I was told what the only good part of the film was, and I have to agree – the sound of it ejecting from the machine.

In my opinion, The Devil Inside should be consigned to room 101 and never see the light of day again. Out of 100, I would give it … 2. It is that high because the lights went out a couple of times and no one was speaking so there was a little bit of a respite from the codswallop.

          I never watched Devil Inside b/c it looked dumb. But I may watch sometime just to see who I agree with here. Honestly, Isaacs and I seem to share the same sentiments on films that are despised by the majority. We both didn’t hate “Devil’s Due” the way others did. I think Isaacs thought it wasn’t as bad as most stated, where as I liked it okay, which is a huge compliment compared to the way others talked about it. “Devil’s Due” could have actually been really good if executed and written the right way. But I imagine “Devil’s Due” is Oscar caliber compared to “Devil Inside”.

          They’re both about the same, Cappie. I don’t think either are as bad as people make them out to be. Everything is subjective. No one wants to watch something shitty, which is why I have my site. I dare anyone to watch Mad Cowgirl and compare these two. Mad Cowgirl s a shit fucking movie that no one will watch because it’s shit. Devil Inside is a mainstream horror that got a big release and no one liked. Mad Cowgirl is a piece of shit.

    • It is what drew me to this codswallop in the first place. A bit like that film with Nicholas Cage and Ron Perlman. They spent all the money on Perlman and couldn’t afford anything else. Season of the Witch

  4. Such a magnificent film. If you look at the word co-star for this film, and say it fast, you can turn this into something decent – coaster

  10. I didn’t think it looked very good, so it’s only reassuring to hear that it was completely not worth it. Sounds like it was weird!
