So my sister finally convinced me to leave my house and *gasp* pay $10 to see a movie, the adventure she picked out for us was The Devil Inside, now im going to try not to spoil this for everyone who has yet to see it,but it may happen so i apoligize in advance. I would like to start out saying i love a good horror film, but they are so few and far between these days that im often disappointed, and today was no different, not only was i not in the least bit scared but i was laughing at some points that were clearly ment to be frightening. Ok short summery this woman isabella found out as an adult that when she was 8her mom killed 3people while they were trying an under the table exersism on her, so she wants to meet her mom to find out if her killer personality is heridertary. So she goes off to italy (beautiful setting) so see her mom in an instituton where the vatican put her to forget about her. This movie starts off so good i was really interested in the class isabella attends at the vatican and so on but right towards the middle it just...dies. if you have ever seen ANY other movie about possession thats ever been made this one will seem like bad deja-vu you are going to know exactly whats gonna happen, no suprises what so ever. Its almost cleche how the story plays out. So all dissapointment aside i wil say there were two scene i really liked in the whole movie, and once again im trying not to kill this for everyone, but one is the baptism scene...its a real holy sh@t moment, and the second is the very last scene in the movie before its really abrupt and dumb ending, but this is more because ive always had a sick curiousity of what this would be like to experiance. So my official recommendation for all you movie goers is wait for the rental because its so not worth it. And im sorry for all my spelling/grammer errors im reviewing via cell phone in a moving car.

What did you think of this review?

This had the right look, style to generate atmosphere and horror, but the way the plot was done was just frustrating to me that I could not connect to it. Nice one, Meghan. I think we agree on this one.

The power of suggestion is a pretty strong marketing ploy. Recent movies such as “The Fourth Kind”, “Apollo 18” and the “Paranormal Activity” franchise have all but made their movies’ premise revolve around the eerie feeling of dread and suggested reality ever since the success of the “Blair Witch Project”. “The Devil Inside” is another such film that uses the suggestion that it had been inspired by true events (I am not at liberty …

*1/2 out of ****    On October 30, 1989; it is said that an elderly woman made a 9/11 phone call in which she revealed to have killed three people. Through an excruciatingly dull walk-through of the crime scene, we learn that the victims were found mutilated almost beyond recognition with religious items such as a crucifix at their side. The deceased were conducting an exorcism on the perpetrator of the crimes when she killed them. The woman, Marie Rossi, is moved to a psychiatric …

Star Rating:         The Devil Inside is the first demonic possession film I know of to entertain the idea of back-alley exorcisms – that is, those performed by ordained exorcists outside official religious jurisdiction. They’re portrayed as progressives eager to bypass the hypocritical and bureaucratic sanctioning of the church, which, according to them, has been alarmingly selective when it comes to who can and cannot receive the services of an exorcist. …
