Excerpt: Paramount Home Entertainment have released "The Devil Inside" onto Blu-ray in the United Kingdom, using an aspect ratio of 1.78:1 (with original aspect ratio 1.85:1 according to imdb). The transfer is 1080p and uses an AVC MPEG-4 codec.
Conclusion: 'The Devil Inside' isn't quite enough to kill the "found footage" sub-genre, but it's definitely the worst feature to use this filming method. This is a horror flick without scares. It's all build-up, but no tension, with tons of predictability along the way.
Excerpt: The Devil Inside inside is a triumph… of marketing. Shot for a cool million and busting the box office to the tune of $53 million domestically, people were clearly convinced of something special. All those shots of contortionists in weird positions and the phony haze of realism have a powerful pull.
Conclusion: My rock-bottom expectations may be partly to blame, but I didn't find The Devil Inside all that bad, especially compared to other recent exorcism films (like last year's dreary standardly-budgeted The Rite ).
Conclusion: Even Satan himself probably thinks The Devil Inside stinks and gives him a bad name. This is one for the bad movie record books, and while it's certainly not amongst the lowest of the low, it still comes to the same dance and wades through the same old bad movie garbage.
Excerpt: The Devil Inside is a strange movie that meanders more than follows a directional story arc, which isn’t a huge surprise given that it’s the latest in a long series of found footage pseudo-documentaries.
Excerpt: Buried somewhere within the abysmal new faux-documentary The Devil Inside lies a zany ’80s-style lowbrow comedy about competition between renegade exorcist slobs and hoity-toity rule-following exorcist snobs at the Vatican Exorcism School.
