The Devil All the Time

Critics Consensus

The Devil All the Time's descent into darkness can be harrowing to the point of punishment, but it's offset by strong work from a stellar cast.

Critic Reviews for The Devil All the Time

All Critics (186) | Top Critics (27) | Fresh (119) | Rotten (67)

  • There are instances of heart and significance scattered throughout the film, but it too often gives into its wandering nature and stops itself from ever making a lasting impression.

    October 7, 2020 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • When The Devil All the Time does plunge into the moral abyss, it's intoxicating -- if only it did it more often.

    September 25, 2020 | Rating: 3/5
  • Engrossing but conventional - a well-told story whose evocative setting and vivid performances combine to produce a grim and lurid tableau.

    September 23, 2020 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • To watch it is to suffer right along with its miserable characters, desperate for some ray of hope or sunshine to peek through the heavy portents of death.

    September 21, 2020 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

  • We never really get to know any of these characters aside from their villainy and/or victimhood. They're paper fish in a cardboard barrel.

  • Best to bury this Devil in an unmarked grave.

    A gripping southern gothic tale with a stellar task playing against archetype.

    One of the worst movies I've ever seen. I'd give almost anything to remove the memory of this from my brain.
    Stephen S Super Reviewer

    An interesting turn into the dark side of small town life here, wherein a couple of generations of different families contest with, umm, small scale evil tendencies, while at the same time professing a deep love of Ja-sus. The hypocrisy's the thing. Shifting perspective simultaneously keeps it all interesting and hard to follow - but not impossible. The actors however commit fully and so sell the poor bastard chile, making for an somewhat fun if grim ride through some towns you'd wish you'd've kept on driving through.
