Review of The Devil Conspiracy

Plot: A plan to give Lucifer a human vessel and free him from his prison begins with the theft of the Shroud of Turin and, soon enough, involves, cults, demons, angels, and possession.

A transparent mixture of influences that range from The Prophecy and The Da Vinci Code to The Omen and The Exorcist, this movie comes out to gate with an open challenge to viewers to defy the idea that fringe beliefs (in religion in science and religion) might be dumb but they sure aren't boring. And boring it is not. For a solid half of its running time the movie moves with urgent momentum before faltering a bit once the less grandiose second half kicks in. Thing get more silly than previously here but, still, fun is reliably around every corner if you leave your brain at the door. Some surprisingly high production values, decent direction, a good score, and some fun world-building round it out. Is it perfect? Not even close. Is it a fun kitbash of multitude wild ideas? Absolutely.
