WAIT! I hate The Lifetime Network too! Seth Macfarlane has dubbed it, "Television for idiots," and I quite agree. Why other women want to watch movies about sadness, anguish, despair, loss, tragedy, stolen babies and wife beating is beyond me. I'd much rather watch a movie about something like a demon feasting on still-beating human hearts. That's normal, right? I almost skipped <I>The Devil's Diary</I> because it cops out and takes the easy route of choosing a high school setting. The whole high school /nerds versus jocks cliche has been beaten to death, and it's just not a world that I am interested in. <I>The Devil's Diary</I> certainly could have given its concept a more sophisticated treatment had it been set in the real world, but what can you expect for a teenage girls' movie on <I>Lifetime</I>? In spite of these constraints, the film is entertaining, gets right to the point and moves along at a sprightly clip. To it's credit, <I>The Devil's Diary</I> is Canadian and has decent production values. Thus it lacks that cheap, made for TV feel. Two girls find a book that grants any wish they write in it. They use it to take revenge on the vicious cheerleaders at their high school. Nerds and jocks battle over the book. A pretty simple premise, but it's executed in a lively, interesting way that is fun to watch. And I admit it's satisfying to see the cheerleaders die. However there's more to it than that. One of the cheerleaders actually has some spunk, some good ideas and does pretty well with the book -for awhile. My only question is, why can't someone who's smart find a book like this? The first thing one should do is write, "Nobody can take this book away from me or ever use it against me. Nobody even knows I have it," and proceed up the ladder from there. Of course nobody thinks of this, and thus the movie has enough material to last more than five minutes. (I have to digress and assert that I would also add things like, "I have an unlimited IQ," "My multiple orgasms last one hour each," "The police refuse to ever arrest me," "I hold a Nobel Prize," and "Bon Jovi can never make another album." Also, "I have omnipotent power and I don't need to keep lugging this silly book around," might be a no-brainer." Why don't the screenwriters ever consult <I>me</I>?) Things get really interesting when the Clergy gets involved. Who wouldn't trust a Catholic priest with a book that bestows unlimited personal power? If you stumble across it and want some simple escapism, <I>The Devil's Diary</I> makes a fun watch for occult fans. It's irreverent, has some memorable images and resists the convention of including a forced, "happy ending." With Danna Casaluce, ("Alex" on <I>Degrassi: The Next Generation</I>) and Alexz Johnson (<I>Final Destination</I>, <I>Reefer Madness</I>.) <div style="width:280px;"><a href="http://www.flixster.com/photos/the-devils-diary-12629106"><img src="http://content8.flixster.com/photo/12/62/91/12629106_ori.jpg" border="0"/></a><div style="text-align:center;font-size:10px;"><a href="http://www.flixster.com"></a> </div></div> <div style="width:280px;"><a href="http://www.flixster.com/photos/the-devils-diary-12622577"><img src="http://content7.flixster.com/photo/12/62/25/12622577_ori.jpg" border="0"/></a><div style="text-align:center;font-size:10px;"><a href="http://www.flixster.com"></a> </div></div> <div style="width:280px;"><a href="http://www.flixster.com/photos/the-devils-diary-12622578"><img src="http://content8.flixster.com/photo/12/62/25/12622578_ori.jpg" border="0"/></a><div style="text-align:center;font-size:10px;"><a href="http://www.flixster.com"></a> </div></div> <div style="width:280px;"><a href="http://www.flixster.com/photos/the-devils-diary-12622581"><img src="http://content7.flixster.com/photo/12/62/25/12622581_ori.jpg" border="0"/></a><div style="text-align:center;font-size:10px;"><a href="http://www.flixster.com"></a> </div></div> <div style="width:280px;"><a href="http://www.flixster.com/photos/the-devils-diary-12622583"><img src="http://content9.flixster.com/photo/12/62/25/12622583_ori.jpg" border="0"/></a><div style="text-align:center;font-size:10px;"><a href="http://www.flixster.com"></a> </div></div> <div style="width:280px;"><a href="http://www.flixster.com/photos/the-devils-diary-12622587"><img src="http://content9.flixster.com/photo/12/62/25/12622587_ori.jpg" border="0"/></a><div style="text-align:center;font-size:10px;"><a href="http://www.flixster.com"></a></div></div>

    This is "Death Note's" Canadian version with good death scenes. The execution is not the best, as well as the acting but at least is an entertaining little horror flix.
