The only unique aspect to the film is that it takes the form of a pseudo documentary and not just some lost footage reassembled by an invisible hand (ala Paranormal Activity). In starting with this approach, the viewer is able to more easily get into the world that is being presented on screen. However very quickly this turns into just another clumsy, boring wannabe horror picture with one good jump early on followed by nearly 80 minutes of monotony.
There is always something disturbing when religious symbols are used in scenes depicting demonic presence. To that extent The Devil Inside is effective in its inclusion of defiling any and neary every sense of good taste. Be warned even if this is your type of movie, the ridiculous conclusion is such a cheat that any suspense or tension is immediedtly dispelled. The Devil Inside isn’t worth the digital camcorder it was shot on.
