Critic Reviews for The Devil's Doorway

All Critics (23) | Top Critics (3)

  • 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.

    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.

  • In spite of its flaws, the film is startlingly successful both at frightening audiences and at honoring the experiences of women held in Magdalene laundries.

  • 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.

    Feb 20, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Clarke's skillful direction and palpable sympathy for these women prevents The Devil's Doorway from falling down an exploitation black hole.
