The Devil Inside is a horror movie that was released in 2012. The film follows the story of a young woman named Isabella Rossi (Fernanda Andrade) who goes on a journey to discover the truth about her mother's violent behavior. Her mother, Maria Rossi (Suzan Crowley), was convicted of murdering three people during an exorcism that went horribly wrong.

The story begins with Isabella investigating her mother's past and trying to find out what really happened during the exorcism. She travels to Rome to meet with a group of Catholic priests who offer to perform another exorcism on her mother. Isabella is skeptical of the whole process, but she is desperate to find out the truth about her mother's condition.

While in Rome, Isabella meets two young priests, Ben (Simon Quarterman) and David (Evan Helmuth), who are well-versed in exorcisms. They take an interest in the case and offer to help her. Isabella also meets a documentary filmmaker named Michael (Ionut Grama) who is intrigued by the story and offers to make a documentary about her mother's case.

As they begin the exorcism process, strange things start to happen. Maria becomes more violent and unpredictable, and Isabella starts to question whether she has made the right decision. The priests believe that Maria is possessed by multiple demons and that they need to perform a group exorcism to save her from them.

The second half of the movie is primarily focused on the exorcism process. The audience sees Maria's behavior becoming more erratic as each demon is exorcised. The film is filled with terrifying scenes that use sound effects and camera movements to create a horror atmosphere. The possession scenes are particularly gruesome and disturbing, making the movie unsuitable for young children.

The Devil Inside is a found-footage horror movie, which means that it is shot in a documentary-style, using handheld cameras and other devices to create a realistic feel. The film's director, William Brent Bell, uses this form of cinematography to create tense and suspenseful scenes that keep the audience on the edge of their seats.

One of the strengths of the movie is the acting performances. Fernanda Andrade does an excellent job of portraying a young woman who is struggling to come to terms with her mother's mental condition. Simon Quarterman and Evan Helmuth also provide a believable performance as the young priests who are trying to help Maria.

The movie was not critically acclaimed and received mixed reviews, with some critics criticizing the film's reliance on jump scares and predictable horror tropes. However, it did well at the box office and was successful enough to warrant talk of a sequel.

Overall, The Devil Inside is a movie that is not for the faint-hearted. It is a gruesome and horrifying film that will appeal to horror movie fans who enjoy possession and exorcism stories. The cinematography and acting are both high-quality, making it a gripping movie that will leave a lasting impression on its audience.

The Devil Inside is a 2012 thriller with a runtime of 1 hour and 23 minutes. It has received poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 4.2 and a MetaScore of 18.
