James' Review of The Devil Inside
The Devil Inside(2012)
It's acting could do with more polishing, and the pace never finds the right rhythm but The Devil Inside excels during the exorcism scenes which are frightening and realistic. Bones break, blood spills, demons chant and the look of terror in Isabella's face throughout is unsettling. The documentary style the directors have created works well, sometimes following it to a fault, but there's always a sense of realism. The Devil Inside is an effective mix of demonic horror and well crafted jump shocks, even if it slacks in the ending it is a worthy and watchable addition to the found footage-documentary genre.
