Two minutes into The Devil Inside, the whole scenario becomes so transparent and tasteless that you dream of taking a long walk around a graveyard just to get your fright fix.
March 1, 2013
The Devil Inside is a con job; a fraud of a movie that leads audiences to the singularly most unsatisfying ending to a movie I've seen in my 13 years as a movie critic.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/10

An exposition-heavy opening act and an abrupt lack of closure may leave moviegoers feeling underserved by The Devil Inside's few genuinely scary moments.

Nothing more than a tired, familiar and characterless genre installment with only the impressive contortions of Bonnie Morgan to recommend it.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/10

And in a wretched attempt to make this contrivance 'real', they resort to endless shaking of the camera. (You would love to shake them!) The only possession I was looking for in this devilish drivel was the possession of any kind of filmmaking talent.

horror that tries to shock you as many times as possible, rather than tell you a story.

Never are you really invested in any of this, as the movie is pervaded by lead-footed artificiality and the growing stink of crass marketing.

[A] limp mockumentary.

Another abysmal horror movie based around "found" documentary footage.

The Devil Inside is yet another dull found footage effort with nothing, bar a mad climax, to offer audiences.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

If it's January, it must be low-grade horror season.

Just terrible.

Director William Brent Bell (Stay Alive) and his co-writer Matthew Peterman offer way too much set-up for too little payoff.
January 6, 2012
The Devil Inside joins a long, woozy-camera parade of found-footage scare pictures, among them The Blair Witch Project, the Paranormal Activity films and certain wedding videos that won't go away.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4

The result isn't chilling so much as reheated.
January 6, 2012
... an insidious kind of terrible movie, simply low-grade bad for most of its thankfully brief running time before offering up an ending so openly contemptuous of the audience as to feel like a prank.
Full Review | Original Score: D

"The Vatican doesn't endorse this film or its completion," are the first words to appear on the blank screen that begins this film. Having sat through it, I don't endorse it, either.

Welcome to the freak show. "The Devil Inside" has everything you would expect from an R-rated horror movie about demon possession: creepy demon voices, contorted bodies, bloody murders and priests who actually think they have a chance of defeating Satan.

One shudders to think of how many worthwhile horror films Paramount passed up to acquire this terribly drab junkpile.
