The Devil Inside

Who's ready for another documentary style horror film about demonic possession?  If you are then you obviously haven't seen as many of these as I have lately.  Even before seeing this one I felt like the genre was overdone.  And now after having seen it, I'm quite certain of it.

This one is pretty much your standard priests and camera crew trying to exorcise the possessed.  And there really isn't much more to it than that.  Sure, it's got a few scares and a few awkwardly intriguing, contorted, demonically possessed subjects.  But really it's just a far inferior version to many other documentary style horror films we've already seen over the last few years.  Stick with 'The Last Exorcism', 'Paranormal Activity', 'Grave Encounters', and the original 'Blair Witch Project'.  This one just ain't worth it.  But if you do decide to see it, then don't waste your time staying through the unnecessarily slow, painfully silent end credits.  There's no payoff.  It was as if this was one final joke played on us suckers who actually went to see this disappoint-fest.  OK, you got me.

Grade: D+
