Film Review “The Devil Inside”

Directed by: William Brent Bell
Starring: Fernanda Andrade, Simon Quarterman, Evan Helmuth, Suzan Crowley
Distributed by: Paramount Pictures
MPAA Rating: R
Running time: 87 minutes

Our Score: 3.5 out of 5 stars

In the wake of successful series like “Paranormal Activity”, “The Devil Inside” is the latest film to try and recreate its glory. The film immediately received bad press from its viewers complaining about how bad this movie was. I went into his film expecting the worse and was really pleasantly surprised. This film contains follows the same path as the other films but delivers some scares and some great “oh shit” moments. If you can get over the shaky camera, I would recommend this.

The film follows a young girl, Isabella, who wants to find out the truth about her mother, Maria Rossi. In 1989, she was arrested for killing three people during a supposed exorcism on herself. She is moved to a hospital in Italy for “undisclosed reason” and Isabella wants to get to the bottom of her condition. She hires a filmmaker to film her on her journey to Italy to learn more about exorcisms and her mothers situation. After meeting with her mother, she finds that she is involved with more than she can handle and the devil is definitely real.

The film is starts off with a documentary feel but then switches to the “Paranormal” feel just following Isabella on her journey through Italy. There are some really cool scenes during a few exorcisms and some good jumps. If you are not a fan of “Paranormal Activity” films, then clearly you need to stay away from this. If you enjoy these type of films then this will leave you satisfied. Due to the success of this film, we should be seeing more in this series. So like it or not, expect more exorcisms.

CD Review: The Devil Wears Prada “Dead Throne”

The Devil Wears Prada
“Dead Throne”
Ferret Records
Producer: Adam Dutkiewicz
Tracks: 13

Our Score: 3 out of 5 stars

“Dead Throne” is the follow up release to The Devil Wears Prada 2009 album “With Roots Above and Branches Below”. “Dead Throne” features 13 new tracks by the 6 piece metal-core band and was produced by Killswitch Engage guitarist Adam Dutkiewicz. “Dead Throne” is being released via Ferret Records.

After listening to “Dead Throne” the first time through I immediately hit repeat and listened through the entire album a second time. “Dead Throne” has so much to listen to that I needed to play the album again just to take it all in. Each track on “Dead Throne” features a wide array of instrumentation which ranges from break neck shredding to groove filled break downs. Songs like “Mammoth”, “Vengeance”, and the album’s first single “Born to Lose” are shining examples of what the band is capable of. From a production stand point Adam Dutkiewicz did a great job giving the tracks an extremely heavy and full sound making each tack contained on “Dead throne” worthy of cranking from your car while driving in a residential neighborhood.

The Devil Wears Prada’s “Dead Throne” was an interesting listen as you never knew what you were going to hear next. I found the album to be quite versatile and more than just your typical metal-core album. Fans of the bands 2009 release will be more than happy listening to The Devil Wears Prada’s latest release “Dead Throne”.
