The Devil Inside hit the silver screen on January 6th of this year. This horror film stars Fernanda Andrade, Simon Quarterman and Evan Helmuth. The Devil Inside is written and directed by William Brent Bell.It gave people around the world a run for their money and a heart thumping experience in the cinemas. 2012 is indeed a year that will bring a whole experience to movie goers around the world.
Although, there are some critics who were not entirely awed by this current film.
Entertainment Weekly said that The Devil Inside’s biggest shock arrives when it abruptly ends. The site gives it a C+ and here’s why:
“Alas, the mayhem doesn’t ensue for all that long. While this religio-horror effort does contain some nice scares, and a memorably unnerving turn from Crowley, The Devil Inside’s biggest shock arrives when it abruptly ends — just as it hits its stride. The result is a found-footage movie whose third act remains missing. “

Aside from this critic, Los Angeles Times sent out a review stating their disapproval of The Devil Inside movie.
“People of the world: If you find some footage, leave it be. You will likely be doing the rest of us a huge favor. “The Devil Inside” is the latest in the apparently endless supply of “found footage” fake documentaries that present themselves as cobbled together from the artifacts of a hapless filmmaker on an especially doomed project.”

Although there are still some critics who were given a ride of their life with The Devil Inside movie.
Here’s a sneak peak into what The Globe And Mail had to say about this new movie.
“This is the time of year for hot cups of cocoa, warm woolen mittens and, oh yeah, low-budget exorcism movies. And just your luck, there’s one opening today.
“The Devil Inside was not previewed for the media in time to make Friday print editions. For jaded film reviewers, this is generally an ominous sign. Paramount, which bought the independently-made film, clearly wants to avoid the opinions of critics who might not, you know, “get it,” and repeat the word-of-mouth, Twitter-verse buzz that turned a low-budget flick it bought in 2007 called Paranormal Activity into a box-office juggernaut that spawned two sequels.While it doesn’t exactly reinvent the inverted cross, The Devil Inside definitely puts a nifty indie spin on the demonic possession genre. With a cast of competent unknowns, including lively foreign bit players, the film is mostly set and partly filmed in Rome. That’s Rome, Italy. This is an asset, because unfortunately the style is faux documentary, which was used to great effect in another nifty low-budget film, The Last Exorcism, which was released last summer.”
The critic of The Devil Inside movie has a final teaser to movie goers and horror enthusiasts out there:
“Since the spoiler watchers are out there let’s just say, well, after that all hell breaks loose and it’s a heck of a lot of fun to watch.
The Devil Inside ends rather abruptly, which may annoy some viewers but leaves things open. After all, if the first new release of 2012 receives paranormal box-office activity, The Devil Is Still Inside is sure to follow.”
