The Devil Inside – Blazing Minds Film Review

Hang on a minute! Are they talking about the film that I’ve just been to see, yes they are and they must have all been on drugs or have extremely nervous dispositions.

Lets face it folks, unless you believe all the hype that is surrounding The Devil Inside, you going to be going in to the cinema and tender hooks and will be thinking “This film is going to scare the s*** out of me!”

Think again! The Devil Inside is boring, it’s bad, it’s just not worth the time it took to make it!

If you think you are going to get something like Chronicle or even the original version of [REC], not the american remake, then you’re in for a big surprise. The Devil Inside painfully plods along at an amateurish pace, with you thinking, is something worthwhile ever going to happen in this movie and the answer is “NO!

Where as Chronicle brought back a glimmer of hope in the hand-held camera, documentary, style films in to the public eye, The Devil Inside has knocked them back to way before The Blair Witch Project!!!!

The Devil Inside could have had some potential, maybe if the film makers had thought a little longer and created an 18 certificated film, that would scare your socks off instead of boring them off, it would have been better.

In my humble point of view, go and rent The Exorcist on DVD or Blu-Ray, it’s far superior to The Devil Inside.

    I watched the trailer and was so terrified I swore I would be going no where near this film ever! It looks absolutley terriffying!!!!!

    • It’s absolutely “terrifyingly” boring!!!

    That’s too bad. One of my favorite genres of film is horror. I’ve enjoyed movies about exorcisms. Particularly, I enjoyed “The Exorcism of Emily Rose” which was somewhat of a courtroom thriller, as well.

    The “psuedo-documentaries” are fun. But for many, they now watch the movie thinking to themselves all along that it’s fake. It’s hard to get scared when you watch a film with that attitude.

    Regardless, I have no problem going into the basement alone late at night, to watch a horror-film and see how scared I might get. Based on your review, this one would just put me to sleep.

    • It put me to sleep Greg, about 20 minutes actually 😉 I’ve seen so much better.

    I have enjoyed the hype with this film but haven’t watched it yet – thanks for your review, instead of buying the film I will rent it – might not even do that!

    • I’d wait for it to come on TV 😆

  • Jean

    Ah, that’s disappointing to hear. I was hoping it would be a good, scary movie based on the early footage they showed.


    • It is a shame, it’s one of those films that the hype is better than the film 😉
