The Devil Inside (2012)

Directed by William Brent Bell.  Written by Bell and Matthew Peterman.  Starring Fernanda Andrade, Simon Quaterman, Evan Helmuth, and Suzan Crowley.

Plot: 20 years after her mother supposedly murdered three people, a woman becomes embroiled in exorcisms to find out why.


In 1989, Maria Rossi (Crowley) kills three people – all from her church.  After, they ship her to Italy because the murders apparently happened during an exorcism.  Now, 20 years later, her daughter, Isabella (Andrade) wants answers, so she goes to Rome to find them.  There, she meets two young priests, Ben (Quaterman) and David (Helmuth), who suggest that she see a real exorcism to understand more effectively.  They perform exorcisms illegally because the church is hypocritical.

Isabella is really whiny in the beginning and it’s a bit annoying.  But the acting was quite good.  The movie was as realistic as a movie about exorcisms is going to get.  And the effects were really good.  I recommend a watch, but DJ’s not sure.  The end really shit the bed for him and he doesn’t want to put anyone else through that.

My score: 55.  DJ’s score: 38.
