Audience Reviews for The Devil's Chair

  • Feb 05, 2012
    The Devil's Chair is one of those films that has a good concept for a film, unfortunately , the filmmakers don't know how to build up on the idea and ends up with a really bad film. This film sucks. The film seemed interesting, and I thought the film had an interesting idea for a film. Unfortunately, the film just didn't deliver. The Devil's Chair is an awful film that has a poor plot. I felt that that film was poorly made, and that director Adam Mason directed a film that is simply bland, tired and overall unimpressive. I hated the film, and thought it was a mess. There are many sequences that simply don't make sense, and frankly don't add anything of interest to the film. This film might have worked if the script would have been worked on a little bit harder. There was some interesting ideas for a film, but none seem to really work. The Devil's Chair was a bad horror flick with a poor cast, poor directing and a poorly constructed script. This was boring, and The Devil's Chair was simply a forgettable film not worth your time. I thought that the film was a missed opportunity to do something truly memorable. The film tried too hard to deliver on the gore with little emphasis on horror. Adam Mason is terrible director in the genre. This film just goes to show that he isn't capable of directing a film that has genuine terror or suspense. That's what this film lacks.

    My first impression: fuck every other word does not make for good dialogue. I'm not a prude about swearing, but too much and anything you're trying to put across gets swamped and makes you sound like a 14 year old trying to impress his mates and seem 'hard'. Sadly, the fuck-fest was not the worst of my viewing experience. Even when Nick West was supposed to be somewhat sympathetic, he appeared to be the kind of person I'd cross the street to avoid. I suppose the hideously sexist, angry drivelling rant of over narration (which actually worked quite well at the beginning bar the extreme potty-mouth) was supposed to be a hint to his true nature. The idea is a decent one on paper/in retrospect, but it was pretty horrid to sit through at the time. The scenes on the 'other side' look effective, but they quickly descend into gore-hound territory and stick there for the duration of their appearance. The dialogue is laughable (seriously), though I suppose the jar between it appearing serious and sounding ridiculous may have been intentional. This was aided by the, ahem, performance, of Matt Berry - star of lovely comedy series such as Garth Marenghi's Darkplace and The IT Crowd. I suppose he had a mortgage to pay. I found Hostel pretty unpleasant viewing, but this film makes it seem rather inoffensive in comparison.
