Critic Reviews for The Devil's Doorway

All Critics (22) | Top Critics (3)

Despite its brief running time, the movie feels dragged out; like the priests, it will eventually lose its way.

Jul 12, 2018 | Full Review…

"The Devil's Doorway" can't overcome the clichés of either the found-footage format or the "Satan is real!" sub-genre.

Jul 11, 2018 | Full Review…

All the well-crafted effort has unfortunately been expended on a tired and overly familiar story that never registers as anything more than a compendium of horror film clichés.

Jul 9, 2018 | Full Review…

Pulsing with indignation at clerical hypocrisy, Aislinn Clarke's film won't convert any found-footage sceptics, but it is a distinct cut above the low-budget genre's usual fare thanks to its careful craft and strong performances.

Clarke's skillful direction and palpable sympathy for these women prevents The Devil's Doorway from falling down an exploitation black hole.
