Despite its brief running time, the movie feels dragged out; like the priests, it will eventually lose its way.
"The Devil's Doorway" can't overcome the clichés of either the found-footage format or the "Satan is real!" sub-genre.
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.
Clarke's skillful direction and palpable sympathy for these women prevents The Devil's Doorway from falling down an exploitation black hole.
One could quickly fill in a bingo card of post-Exorcist tropes as Clarke's feature goes through the fright-free motions of dribbling out allegedly sinister revelations.
Smart in both form and content, this is an innovative, effective and necessary Irish horror film. It marks [director Aislinn] Clarke out as a distinctive talent to watch.
A chintzy found-footage occult/horror film lambasting the Catholic Church for its hypocrisy.
It was hard to shake the feeling that the movie plays like a collection of Horror's Greatest Hits.
The horror genre is blessed to welcome another innovative female director who is telling stories and rebelling against the traditional gaze-pushing the envelope and experimenting in true artistic fashion.
A debut that shows great promise, The Devil's Doorway is a fine example of found footage done right.
There is an earnestness in the battle between faith and cynicism in this film.
There will, as the title implies, be devilry at the door, but Clarke's film is less concerned with demonising its (dis)possessed women than with exposing the Church's own hypocrisy and vicious practices.
