In 1989, emergency responders received a 9-1-1 call from Maria Rossi (Suzan Crowley) confessing that she had brutally killed three people. 20 years later, her daughter Isabella (Fernanda Andrade) seeks to understand the truth about what happened that night. She travels to the Centrino Hospital for the Criminally Insane in Italy where her mother has been locked away to determine if her mother is mentally ill or demonically possessed.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"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 Travers, Rolling Stone
"The Devil Inside's biggest shock arrives when it abruptly ends - just as it hits its stride."
‑ Clark Collis, Entertainment Weekly
"A stupid, boring, and inane exorcise in bargain basement horror..."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"horror that tries to shock you as many times as possible, rather than tell you a story."
‑ James Luxford, The National
"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 Weaving, Screenwize
"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 Neumaier, New York Daily News
"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 Olsen, Los Angeles Times
"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 Kernan, We Got This Covered
"Nothing more than a tired, familiar and characterless genre installment with only the impressive contortions of Bonnie Morgan to recommend it."
‑ William Bibbiani, CraveOnline
"If it's January, it must be low-grade horror season."
‑ Roger Moore, McClatchy-Tribune News Service
""The Devil Inside'' usefully reminds us how little it takes to make some people scream in a crowded movie theater."
‑ Wesley Morris, Boston Globe
"Whatever possessed Bell & Co. to turn a slow-burning creepfest into a frenzied freak show of multiple exorcisms (including one in a moving car), the devil only knows."
‑ Matt Singer, Time Out New York
"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 Kendrick, ScreenRant
"A terribly written, dubious slice of unscary found footage spiritual horror that ends with an ellipsis, not a period."
‑ R. L. Shaffer, IGN DVD
"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 Martin, UTV
