Review of The Devil Inside

this is the lowest that mainstream horror films have sunk to in quite a while. william brent bell is by no means a brilliant director when you consider his limited past resume, which included the 2006 video game-themed horror bomb stay alive. that film has its problems, but fails nowhere nearly as bad as this found footage demonic possession movie. let's get the biggest gripe people have with this film out of the way. the ending of the film cuts to a website url, directing viewers to go there in order to learn more information about the events of the film. there have been those who called this the worst ending in movie history, and i can see where they are coming from. while i get what the directors were going for in terms of providing further details on the world of the film, the way that final title card plays out leaves audiences with the impression that they have just seen an eighty-three minute long advertisement for a film website. with that in mind, there's no wonder why the film earned a rare "f" cinemascore from audiences and dropped an agonizing 76% from its first to second weekend in grosses. but if that were all that was wrong with the film than it would have at least been a noble failure. unfortunately such is not the case, as bell and matthew peterman's script runs though all the hoops and hurdles of the official "exorcist ripoff obstacle course" and combines them with the worst cliches of the found footage/mockumentary genre. the acting is awful, the scares non-existent, the plot predictable and, of course, the ending infuriating. that creates a perfect storm of bad horror.
