The Devil Inside

Spread the Word!


Have you ever watched a movie that had you completely invested in it but when it ended it left you saying,” what the fuck just happened?” That was me after I finished watching this movie. I usually avoid watching movies that’s filmed like this. I call movies like this the “Paranormal Activity Effect.”

The Devil Inside is based off true events, Maria Rossi committed a triple murder during an exorcism performed by a catholic church. She was then placed in a Catholic psychiatric hospital in Rome. Her daughter, Isabella Rossi, travels to Rome 20 years later to find out the truth about her mother. The concept of the movie was good. I can buy a long lost daughter trying to find out if her mother is really crazy or if she was really possessed by a demon when she murdered three people.

Isabella befriends two priests, Ben and David, and they conduct an investigation on her case. This movie had some of the most realistic looking moments i’ve seen in a horror movie. When I saw that girl snap her bones out of place I cringed.


Yeah, I’m talking about that scene. That shit was creepy and awesome at the same time. When Isabella finally confronted her mother and demon came out I was like, “holy shit she really is possessed!” I was into the movie, I was loving the way it affected everyone in it and I was enjoying myself until “that” ending happened.

Just when I think this movie is going to have an awesome ending it just ended. After Isabella is possessed by the demon {spoiler alert I guess} and Ben is driving them to have an exorcism performed, the demon jumps out of Isabella and into the driver of the car and crashes it. The screen turns black and the movie just ends. When I saw the credits I was just confused. I enjoyed the movie up to that part and the ending just killed it for me. Whether or not the movie is really a true story is irrelevant at this point.

I was expecting a real ending to the movie and it just cuts off after the car accident and they tell us to visit a website for more information. The Devil Inside is a mixed bag for me. I enjoyed the movie all the way to the end but to this day I’ve never bothered to watch it again because of that ending. The Devil Inside’s final verdict is a 6/10. Since I did like the movie I can’t see myself giving it anything lower than an above average score. If we had got a real ending I could have easily given this an 8 but as it stands The Devil Inside is forgettable and ultimately disappointing with it’s final conclusion to what could have been a great film.

    This movie was terrible. And just the fact that it ended with a website that was about something fake, just pissed me off more to high heavens! Good review.

      Thanks! I think the movie would have been a lot better if it had an actual ending and not the crap we got. As it stands The Devil Inside is just your average horror movie with a crap ending.
