From the amateur acting, writing and directing to an ending that is shocking only in its stupidity, The Devil Inside will make you puke for all the wrong reasons.
-Peter TraversFull Review
It stumbles along to what may arguably be the most abrupt, nonsensical ending since Luis Bunuel stopped slicing cows' eyes for the sake of surrealism.
-Joe NeumaierFull Review
"The Devil Inside'' usefully reminds us how little it takes to make some people scream in a crowded movie theater.
-Wesley MorrisFull Review
The Devil Inside's biggest shock arrives when it abruptly ends - just as it hits its stride.
-Clark CollisFull Review
People of the world: If you find some footage, leave it be. You will likely be doing the rest of us a huge favor.
-Mark OlsenFull Review
You can see where this is going, and the filmmakers can see that you can see. So they rush to the hideous yet hilarious climax in little more than an hour and then pad the running time with the slowest-moving credits ever.
-Mark JenkinsFull Review
While it doesn't exactly reinvent the inverted cross, The Devil Inside definitely puts a nifty indie spin on the demonic possession genre.
-Jennie PunterFull Review
Clearly, when a cheapie pickup like "Paranormal Activity," which Paramount released a few years ago, turns into franchise gold, there's just no stopping the banality.
-Manohla DargisFull Review
Bell directs with all the enthusiasm of a guy who was called into work on his day off.
-Eric D. SniderFull Review
Proves as scary and unsettling as a slab of devil's food cake - only considerably less satisfying.
-Michael RechtshaffenFull Review
The Devil Inside joins a long, woozy-camera parade of found-footage scare pictures, among them The Blair Witch Project, the Paranormal Activity films and certain wedding videos that won't go away.
-Michael PhillipsFull Review
It's better when you don't show too much - but if your story is about the supernatural, eventually you're going to have to come up with something. "The Devil Inside" can't.
-Stephen WhittyFull Review
Here it is just the first week of January, and already we have a strong candidate for the worst movie of 2012.
-Peter HowellFull Review
Despite the palpable air of deja vu that hangs over it like a light fog, The Devil Inside generates a fair amount of suspense during sizable swaths of its familiar but serviceable exorcism-centric scenario.
-Joe LeydonFull Review
A stupid, boring, and inane exorcise in bargain basement horror...
-Felix Vasquez Jr.Full Review
The Devil Inside is a con job; a fraud of a movie that leads audiences to the singularly most unsatisfying ending to a movie I've seen in my 13 years as a movie critic.
-Sean KernanFull Review
An exposition-heavy opening act and an abrupt lack of closure may leave moviegoers feeling underserved by The Devil Inside's few genuinely scary moments.
-Ben KendrickFull Review
horror that tries to shock you as many times as possible, rather than tell you a story.
-James LuxfordFull Review
Nothing more than a tired, familiar and characterless genre installment with only the impressive contortions of Bonnie Morgan to recommend it.
-William BibbianiFull Review
A terribly written, dubious slice of unscary found footage spiritual horror that ends with an ellipsis, not a period.
-R. L. ShafferFull Review
Despite a clever - if not particularly original - idea, this pseudo-documentary horror movie is let down by an immensely frustrating ending and some less than convincing performances.
-Simon WeavingFull Review
If it's January, it must be low-grade horror season.
-Roger MooreFull Review
And in a wretched attempt to make this contrivance 'real', they resort to endless shaking of the camera. (You would love to shake them!) The only possession I was looking for in this devilish drivel was the possession of any kind of filmmaking talent.
-Brian Henry MartinFull Review
-Graham YoungFull Review
A run-of-the-mill exorcism movie hobbled by its own hype and a divisive ending.
The Devil Inside is yet another dull found footage effort with nothing, bar a mad climax, to offer audiences.
-Martyn ConterioFull Review
Another abysmal horror movie based around "found" documentary footage.
-Siobhan SynnotFull Review
The Devil Inside has the occasional creepy moment but it's let down by a patchy script and some uneven performances.
