"Devishly delightful." That is how Movie Fanatic critic Joel Amos describes "The Devil Inside," a new horror movie opening in theaters this weekend.
Amos, who labeled the movie one of the scariest he has ever seen, continued his praise of the exorcism flick calling it "that rare horror movie that plants its horror seeds in your brain in its opening moments. They then bear fruit with increasing fervor by scaring you as the film progresses."
"The Devil Inside" begins with a 1989 9-1-1 call in which Maria Rossi (played by Suzan Crowley) confesses to brutally killing three people. Two decades later her daughter Isabella (Fernanda Andrade) recruits two exorcists in an attempt to determine if her mother, who has been locked away in an Italian mental hospital, is insane or demonically possessed.
Rick Florino of Artist Direct praised the horror flick as the first, must-see film of 2012.
"Unique, unnerving, and unsettling, 'The Devil Inside' is the ultimate 21st century exorcism film. Nightmares will abound at this exposition of evil in its purest form. You won't sleep without the light on and a cross nearby for a long time to come … One of the best horror flicks this decade," he wrote.
Uncle Creepy on Dread Central called the film "an effective thriller that's guaranteed to send some solid chills down the spines of audiences."
