The Devil Within is a horror movie released in 2020, directed by Justin G. Dyck and written by Keith Cooper. The movie stars Ali Skovbye as Emma, Elyse Levesque as Isabelle, and Tantoo Cardinal as Elder Ruth. The movie revolves around a family who moves into a secluded farmhouse to escape their troubled past, but soon discovers that evil lurks within the house.

The story begins with Emma and her family moving into a secluded farmhouse. Emma is a troubled teenager who has recently lost her father and is struggling to cope with his death. Her mother, Marie, hopes that moving to the farmhouse will help the family heal and start a new life. However, things take a turn for the worse when strange things start happening in the house.

Emma begins to feel like someone is watching her, and soon discovers that there is a demon living in the house. The demon begins to possess her, and Emma's behavior becomes increasingly erratic and violent. Isabelle, Emma's older sister, quickly realizes that something is not right and starts researching the history of the farmhouse.

Isabelle discovers that the farmhouse was built on land where a cult used to perform satanic rituals. The cult was led by a man named Ezekiel, who believed that he was possessed by a demon. Ezekiel and his followers performed a ritual that allowed the demon to possess Ezekiel's body, but the demon soon began to take control and kill the cult members.

Isabelle also learns that the demon can only be defeated by a ritual involving the sacrifice of a virgin. Isabelle realizes that Emma is the only virgin in the house and that she will be the demon's next target. Isabelle and Elder Ruth, an indigenous woman who lives near the farmhouse, work together to perform the ritual and defeat the demon.

The Devil Within is a well-executed horror movie that uses suspense and tension to create a creepy atmosphere. The performances of the three main actors are excellent, with Ali Skovbye taking on a challenging role as a possessed teenager. The film's pacing is also well done, with the story building slowly to a satisfying climax. The movie also explores themes of grief, family, and the supernatural, making it more than just a run-of-the-mill horror film.

One of the movie's strengths is how it balances the supernatural elements with real-world issues. The movie explores the pain of losing a loved one and how it can affect a family, especially teenagers. Emma's behavior is a manifestation of her grief, making her a sympathetic character. The movie also explores the effect of colonialism and cultural erasure on indigenous communities through Elder Ruth's character.

The movie's production values are also impressive, with a well-designed farmhouse that adds to the creepiness of the setting. The special effects are used sparingly but effectively, making the most of the film's budget.

Overall, The Devil Within is a well-made horror movie that stands out for its strong performances and effective storytelling. It is a must-watch for horror fans who enjoy a good scare and appreciate a well-told story. The movie succeeds in creating an eerie atmosphere that will keep audiences on the edge of their seats until the end.

The Devil Within is a 2020 drama with a runtime of 1 hour and 36 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 4.1.
