It has a nice little array of second tier actors, an interesting story, and a convincing performance by Jensen Ackles who keeps the movie afloat with enough competence to render him likable, even if it's genre confused as all hell...

good ending that can't save generally disappointing film

Full Review… | October 9, 2005's hard to imagine anyone walking away from the film satisfied (this includes the folks responsible for making the movie).

...three or four bits of high-end grue surrounded by a whole lot of white noise.

Audience Reviews for Devour

Here we go. This is how I like my bad movies: stupid, fun, pretty and with a silly story that's at least half-way cohesive. It's worth it just to see Dean Winchester with blood all over his chin. Hawt. It seems to me that this script was built around eight halfway clever exchanges of dialogue, which clash with the rest of the movie hard enough that you'll be able to pick them right out. The story logic is a little fuzzy in a lot of places, but you can tell that the writers, while not talented, care about continuity. I actually quite liked this movie; Dominique Swain and William Sadler give respectable performances, and Jensen Ackles is always a pleasure to watch. I think this story tries to be a little too ambitious, and the movie throws too many elements in there without using them all. In fact, it ends up throwing away its own core element: the video game The Pathway. You could make three efficient movies with story wasted in this one, which comes off as a little jumbled. Still, this movie is most enjoyable. Maybe I just have a soft spot for movies with revenge fantasies , satanic cults and 90s industrial crud on the soundtrack.

What this movie is a trip. It's like Dean the early years before Sammy started tagging along. A very supernatural style script. It is twisted and not what you would expect. Jensen plays the normal guy that gets sucked into an extraordinary situation. Not a lot to say that doesn't give stuff away or is different from the synapisis. I think it is one of those movies that's a thriller and off the beaten path. Kind of horror-esque but not exactly "scary". This could be because I don't find films scary but it was still a trip. If you like films like The Ninth Gate then you should like this. Also if you are a Jensen Ackles fan then you will like this. Better than the remake of"My Bloody Valentine" by leaps and bounds. In fact I found this movie because I looked up Jensen to see what he has been in.
