At the Devil’s Door (2014) Review:
This second movie by Nicholas McCarthy (The Pact) is one that doesn’t leave people indifferent. It has received a lot of bad critics and poor rating, yet some (including me) find it an excellent movie!
Unlike The Pact, At The Devil’s Door is definitely an atypical one. First of all, it is built in a puzzle-like way. First, you have trouble understanding what’s happening but, as the story unrolls, a series of clever flashbacks inserted without warning comes to demystify the situation. It feels a little confusing at first, but it makes the movie even more unsettling than it already was. I really liked the dark and dramatic atmosphere, which fits well with the very slow and very quiet tone of the movie… and this is probably why most people have trouble liking it. I do agree that it feels like the movie remains stuck in first gear most of the time, but try to go past that and you will appreciate the cleverness of all that is beyond.
I have now seen it quite a few days ago and I keep thinking about it and about that strange demon…such a creepy vision. I confess that the end is deceiving, making the movie a lot less good that it could have been, but it is all part of the tragedy. Actually, At The Devil’s Door reminded me of the dramatic aspect of The Entity or again the recent but very dark Here Comes The Devil, so if you liked these latter movies, go ahead and watch that one. It is slow, but it has a nice little dark something that makes it different from the bunch of recent possession movies made for teenagers.
