Audience Reviews for Devil Seed (The Devil in Me)
This movie is known under the name "The Devil in Me" as well and for me it was so hard to review it...at the moments was reaching some quality but in general it was just an attempt to make something really scary using someone's else work!
It opens with the obligatory flashback to an exorcism gone wrong some time on the 1940's... and moves forward to the same house, now inhabited by a trio of late teen ladies partial to wandering around in short, tight clothes... The story of Alexandra (Michelle Argyris), a nice girl with a not so nice boyfriend who is having a funny business behind her back with her blond housemate, was some kind of compilation of possession films - it incorporated every possible scene, scare and cliché!
I could recognise whole parts from The Exorcist , The Exorcism of Emily Rose and Demon Seed to Drag Me to Hell. Like a déjà vu of swearing, midnight staring, scratches and clawing, invisible sex attacks, levitation and blasphemous banter - nothing new there. Some of the acting wasn't too bad but that was it.
A mostly uninspired, derivative Exorcism film, Devil Seed still managed to be relatively entertaining as it mixed horror film plot tropes from not just Exorcism films but other sub-genres as well. Not great by any stretch of the term, Devil Seed keeps one mostly engrossed despite its inherent crappiness.
Creepy as hell, although the script and acting could have used some polish and made this look more like a college post-grad project - which is to say, good by itself but compared to other things, mediocre. Still, once the first fifteen minutes are past and the scares start happening, things move along pretty smoothly despite it all so it's still worth a look-see.
