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.

Critic Reviews for Here Comes the Devil

All Critics (23) | Top Critics (8)

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.

"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.

Top Critic

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

New York Times
Top Critic

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.

Top Critic

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

New York Daily News
Top Critic

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

Giving this a high rating just because a lot of the subplots I didn't quite get, plus, there's the fact that it creeped and scared me out of my wits for several months. There's such an odd, hellish, demonic aura from this movie that knows exactly how to treat its subject matter: like if it was pagan, satanic and from the depths of hell. I do believe this is how Mexicans view their satanic folklore, and so with that said, I highly recommend this movie for people that love getting scared by ambience, difficult themes, and art, as this does take a few viewings to wrap your head around.

I think this was better than the tomatometer suggests. It was a fairly slow burn with occasional weak spots, but also some very effective, very creepy scenes. Mostly understated with flashes of violence. It felt quite real at times with a lot of emotional, psychological drama. I wouldn't say it's a great movie, and at times it felt like it should have been pushed further, but it was interesting and for the most part enjoyable.

i knew the beginning of this one -- i must have started to watch this and then lost the interest to read subtitles and stopped. i do that sometimes; i thought this title seemed familiar. i watched the whole thing this time though -- very much loved the ending. and i'm talking the last, like, 2 minutes. literally: the ending. the rest of it was just okay; more creepy notions than scary -- you pretty much know what happened right away so there's nothing to guess as far as plot goes... you just kinda have to watch it do it's thing and then they pull a quick stunt at the end and that's about it.
