The Devil Inside
In my ten years covering the genre, I don't think I've ever seen a harsher backlash toward one film as I have with Paramount Insurge's The Devil Inside. Despite the jeering, spitting, throwing of garbage, and my own public text-based crucifixion for daring to think it was pretty good, the film managed to pull in $34.5M during its opening weekend. Given its success, a sequel is a no-brainer, right? Maybe, maybe not.
After being in a slump for most of 2011, the horror genre roared back to life with The Devil Inside’s surprising $34.5 million box office take thus far. The bad news for Paramount, however, is that their hit has been reportedly getting booed off screens all over the country, has received the ultra-rare “F” Cinemascore, and has pretty much been universally reviled by everyone that doesn’t go by the moniker “Uncle Creepy”.
If I have any complaints about movie-going in general, it's the nearly all of the spectacle is gone. In the days of the great William Castle (who pretty much created viral marketing), there would be all manner of gimmicks associated with his films from seat buzzers to insurance policies to flying skeletons sailing over the crowd. What a fun time to have been a fan! As a tip of the hat to those golden days of cinema, Paramount had a little surprise in store for those who attended the Los Angeles premiere of The Devil Inside.
Paramount's The Devil Inside has horror fans divided. Some loved it, some liked it, and some hate it on a level that's borderline irrational.
