Critic Reviews for Here Comes the Devil
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.
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.
Creepy movie indeed.. can't really say much else, but I gotta say I was definitely feeling the freaky vibe going on with this one. Nowhere on the same level as The Shining or The Exorcist but far better than those Paranormal Activity movies.
I'll watch pretty much anything released by Magnet at this point. Some of my personal favs so far are Let the Right One In, Timecrimes, Rubber, Trollhunter, Tucker and Dale vs Evil, and Bad Milo. Here Comes the Devil is one to add to that list. While it certainly has its flaws, I can forgive them because it had something waaaaaaaaaaaay more important. What might that be? My attention. As I watch more and more movies, it takes more and more creativity (aka - weird shit) to draw me in, but this one had me right from the start. Mysterious and disturbing!
