Bogliano, at last, manages to show remarkable restraint in the proceedings, with Here Comes the Devil recalling some great genre art house efforts from decades past.

Here Comes The Devil may be awful a lot of the time, yet I can't deny its power at keeping me invested throughout.

Here Comes the Devil is one of the most interesting, frightening and thoroughly alive-both intellectually and viscerally-works of horror and dread this critic has seen in a very, very long time.

The film builds to an effectively tense climax, but spends much of its runtime bogged down by tonally incongruous sub-plots that alternate between boring and nonsensical.
February 20, 2014
There's probably a frightening movie in there somewhere, or at least a darkly intriguing one, but this version can't unravel the chills of a half-glimpsed mystery.

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.
January 30, 2014
Fuses the grindhouse with the arthouse into an interesting but unsatisfying hybrid.
January 30, 2014
Has mood but no real presence, making the movie a grab bag of lustful encounters and skin-ripping gore, while submitting the most vaginally-inspired imagery of the film year.

The idiosyncratic, jagged-meets-subtle style writer-director Adrin Garca Bogliano demonstrates in this Mexican horror story suggests we'll be seeing more of his nightmares.
December 13, 2013
"Here Comes the Devil" is a horror movie. The problem is that writer-director Adrin Garca Bogliano can't decide what kind of horror movie he wants it to be.
December 12, 2013
A muddled supernatural thriller that fails to capitalize on either its horrific prologue or eerie location.
December 12, 2013
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.
December 12, 2013
Bogliano keeps the focus on the psychology rather than the bloodlust, so "Here Comes The Devil" rises above the schlock of typical horror.
December 12, 2013
Bogliano provides a steady series of jolts, all the way to an ending that's twisty but ultimately unsatisfying.
December 11, 2013
Better sex scenes than scary scenes. Too few of either to make a difference.
December 11, 2013
But once it becomes clear that the children really are possessed -- cue the flickering lights and late-night levitation -- Here Comes the Devil settles into an all-too familiar groove.
December 11, 2013
Bogliano's unnerving mood, complemented by grungy camerawork and a shroud of sonic chaos, provides an emotional strain that makes anything possible.
December 10, 2013
Horror movies punish the sexually irresponsible; the Spanish-language film Here Comes the Devil manages to indict a married couple with that slasher-movie charge.
December 10, 2013
Here Comes The Devil embraces a certain amount of midnight movie fun, but with a lack of true horror, you'll be screaming "WHAT?!" for all the wrong reasons.
December 9, 2013
Intriguing if ultimately less than satisfying.
