Review of The Devil Inside

Before I start off I'll say this: from the beginning of the movie to just before the ending, the movie is not painful or unbearable to watch, but it's not exactly exciting or good either. So why give this a one? Well that's simple, because the ending is so bad that whatever thing or two I liked were completely obliterated from my mind. I'll get to the ending in greater detail later, lets just talk about everything before the ending first.

The movie starts off with the police getting a call from a woman saying she murdered three people. Police go and investigate, find her and then the movie jumps ahead to our time. Then the movie goes a little something like this, daughter of the woman who murdered those people finds out about her mom, goes to mom sees she's possessed, finds priests, performs unauthorized exorcisms, then things start to go bad for everyone, then the end. Sound familiar? Good, because it's the same dam thing as every other possession movie with the paranormal activity mockumentary style thrown it to make it seem "different".

The acting in this movie isn't laughable, but no one seems capable of emitting any sort of emotion. You won't be seeing any of these stars anytime soon. However, I will give credit to the woman who plays Maria Rossi(Susan Crowley). She was very convincing as someone who was possessed but, the way her scenes are filmed are more likely to provoke laughter than terror.

Next are the characters, ha characters. They're all cardboard cut-outs and I didn't care about any of them. The scares are predictable and you can see them coming a mile away(for example, after one of the exorcisms that went horribly wrong a priest is baptizing a baby. Towards the end where he has to quickly dunk the baby in the holy water, you can already tell that he's going to try to drown the baby, it was so obvious). The only actual creepy part or two are in the condensed, more enjoyable, and less time consuming two minute trailer. Other than those two creepy moments there was nothing scary about this movie, the trailer for the oogieloves frightened me more than this entire movie.

Now to the best part, the ending. This has to be one of the worst endings I have ever seen. Did the film makers run out of money? Or did they run out of ideas so that they said to themselves, "eh, this is good enough let's just end it"?? Whatever the reason is, by the time those end credits started rolling, I realized how much of an idiot I was for wasting my time. I won't give away the ending but, it ends right in the middle of the climax, who in their right mind would think that's a good idea. Were they trying to leave us with a cliffhanger? Do they know what a cliffhanger is?

83 minutes of my life wasted on this garbage, and that's with credits. People will still probably watch this due to sheer curiosity, but seriously, don't even bother. The ending is so abrupt and leaves so many things unresolved that it makes this whole movie just a complete waste of time. The best parts are in the trailer so just watch the trailer again instead of subjecting yourself to this and wasting 83 minutes of your life. Sometimes videos waiting to be found, should just be left alone.
