The Devil Inside Movie Review (2011)

Towards the end, the movie builds up and it does a few things that I didn’t expect. It started to go into new territory and I like that about it, it really worked quite well. Everything is kind of starting to hit the fan and it looks as though it’s about to go into the third act of the movie ... then it stops. It stops dead in its tracks and the credits role. There is no third act of this movie. Just as it’s starting to build and it starts to get good, it just stops. That’s the biggest issue with the movie, it doesn’t have an ending and all those little sub plots and ideas and themes that were introduced to keep your interest go nowhere. None of them were ever resolved or expanded upon and some of them are flat out never explained.

Today, I’m talking about The Devil Inside. I think I saw this trailer first when I saw Paranormal Activity 3 and a couple of clips had surfaced online by then so I was relatively excited to see this movie. Basically, The Devil Inside is another one of those found footage, handy cam horror movies like The Blair Witch. It’s about this girl, whose mother flipped out and killed three people during an exorcism and was found innocent due to insanity, but she was moved from a mental hospital in the USA to one in Rome. That actually seemed a little odd. The girl and a documentary film maker basically want to find out what happened, they want to go talk to her and they want to explore the idea of exorcisms and learn more about them.

Towards the end, the movie builds up and it does a few things that I didn’t expect. It started to go into new territory and I like that about it, it really worked quite well. Everything is kind of starting to hit the fan and it looks as though it’s about to go into the third act of the movie ... then it stops. It stops dead in its tracks and the credits role. There is no third act of this movie. Just as it’s starting to build and it starts to get good, it just stops. That’s the biggest issue with the movie, it doesn’t have an ending and all those little sub plots and ideas and themes that were introduced to keep your interest go nowhere. None of them were ever resolved or expanded upon and some of them are flat out never explained.

What we have here is a movie with interesting ideas that don’t go anywhere, scenes that never get truly scary and feel off and just as things are starting to get good, the movie ends. It had a couple of things going for it, but ultimately I can’t over look the fact that it’s missing a third act. It’s such a giant glaring issue, which nothing else I could say really matters. The only scene in the movie that’s any good is one that’s totally ruined by the clip that came out online of it and the messed up part of it, is that it worked better online. It wasn’t suspenseful at any point and it fell completely flat.
