Movie Info

Robert Eastwood is an innocent, brought up in a world of evangelical Christianity that has taught him to look for signs and to believe that evil is waiting just outside the front door. When he goes to school he is shocked to discover that no one else thinks the world was created in 7 days or that Jesus will be returning. Caught between his mother, who's determined to bring Jesus's love to a dead mining town, and his best friend Marcus who's introduced him to teenage rebellion, Robert becomes embroiled in a spiritual tug of war as he tries to escape his religious beliefs. It's then that he discovers a dead body in the woods and realizes that God has sent him a sign.

  • It's not a film that sets out to shock but it does succeed in quietly unsettling the audience.

  • There's a sense that [writer-director] Hulme is trying deeply to understand why people still feel the need to believe in the Bible's tales of gods and demons.

  • Plot flaws aside, The Devil Outside, is a handsomely shot, well-acted and engaging examination of faith and science.
