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 unspeakable events the night the children were lost that continue even now. As a loving couple - and loving parents - try to care for and protect their children, the ancient and half-whispered legends around the caves and the mountain and those who have gone there before become too strange to believe ... and too dangerous, no matter how insane, to ignore.

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.

Feb 13, 2014 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

"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.

Dec 13, 2013 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…

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

Dec 12, 2013 | Full Review…

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.

Dec 12, 2013 | Full Review…

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

Dec 12, 2013 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

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

½

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.
