Movie Info

HERE COMES THE DEVIL combines modern indie filmmaking and storytelling with a hint of '70s-styled psychological horror that may not just be psychological. Francisco Barreiro and Laura Caro play parents Felix and Sol whose preteen son and daughter inexplicably reappear after being lost overnight on a desolate, cave-riddled mountainside after a casual hike became every parent's nightmare. The good luck and good fortune of their return soon changes, as the children's behavior suggests ominous and

An auteur like Carlos Reygadas would have taken this in a worthwhile direction, and he did something like this with his significantly artier film Post Tenebras Lux.

A muddled supernatural thriller that fails to capitalize on either its horrific prologue or eerie location.

Fond of lurching weirdness, jarring inserts and sonic loudness, Bogliano shows he's invested as much in conveying the psychodrama of a fractured home as he is the signposts of edgy, bloody retro-infused terror.

Bogliano keeps the focus on the psychology rather than the bloodlust, so "Here Comes The Devil" rises above the schlock of typical horror.

Bogliano's unnerving mood, complemented by grungy camerawork and a shroud of sonic chaos, provides an emotional strain that makes anything possible.

Horror movies punish the sexually irresponsible; the Spanish-language film Here Comes the Devil manages to indict a married couple with that slasher-movie charge.

The film builds to an effectively tense climax, but spends much of its runtime bogged down by tonally incongruous sub-plots that alternate between boring and nonsensical.

There's probably a frightening movie in there somewhere, or at least a darkly intriguing one, but this version can't unravel the chills of a half-glimpsed mystery.

Fuses the grindhouse with the arthouse into an interesting but unsatisfying hybrid.

Has mood but no real presence, making the movie a grab bag of lustful encounters and skin-ripping gore, while submitting the most vaginally-inspired imagery of the film year.

The idiosyncratic, jagged-meets-subtle style writer-director Adrián García Bogliano demonstrates in this Mexican horror story suggests we'll be seeing more of his nightmares.

"Here Comes the Devil" is a horror movie. The problem is that writer-director Adrián García Bogliano can't decide what kind of horror movie he wants it to be.

Bogliano provides a steady series of jolts, all the way to an ending that's twisty but ultimately unsatisfying.

Better sex scenes than scary scenes. Too few of either to make a difference.

But once it becomes clear that the children really are possessed -- cue the flickering lights and late-night levitation -- Here Comes the Devil settles into an all-too familiar groove.

Here Comes The Devil embraces a certain amount of midnight movie fun, but with a lack of true horror, you'll be screaming "WHAT?!" for all the wrong reasons.

The film is eventually revealed as less interested in subverting or playing off its influences than rigorously retracing them.

It exudes an effective creepiness and a free-wheeling attitude to both hot and horrible sexuality, but Adrian Garcia Bogliano's bad-seed opus Here Comes The Devil doesn't amount to much more than a stylish ode to 70's giallo-esque excess.

It's not outright terrifying, but Here Comes the Devil is subtly scary and well worth a look.

Audience Reviews for Here Comes the Devil

Did I ever tell you how much less scary The Descent seems when you remember what those monsters, those humanoid, underground dwelling cannibals are called? I'm kind of glad I realized what was going on once the movie was over, since it might have ruined some of the burn for me. I liked this movie very much; it's got very human characters and it's never quite clear where the story is going. That, and there are some really hot sex scenes at the beginning. A married couple loses their kids on a day trip to this rocky mountain park, and when they find them again, the kids aren't quite the same. The blanks are never quite filled in all the way for you as you watch this movie and if there's a monster in this story, I'm still not sure what it is or what it wants. There's also a 70s flavour to this movie, most evident in the cheesy quick-zooms the director likes to use while shooting the mountain.
